    Look at UCAS list of unis and look at them all.

    i don't really know much about biological science courses, but for medicine a good starting point for choosing the right course for you would be to decide what type of course you think would best suit you and your learning style, ie. traditional, integrated or PBL

    Also, biological sciences and Medicine are two very different courses, it is very likely that your favourite for each will be at two different uni's.

    As far as medicine is concerned, the best university is the one that suits you best, has the style of course which works for you and is in a place you wouldn't mind spending 5 or 6 years of your life. some things to think about when choosing a medical school

    Remember that getting into medicine is about more than just the grades.
