    hi, just a quick thread needing some advice. basically iv got a place for a foundation med course (6yrs), pretty much know iv missed the grades, not being mystic meg here but i had 18 exams and there wasnt one that went pretty decent..but worst case scenario i dont get the grades..i dont have chemistry either at A2 and have to AS at grade D. can anyone please suggest any possible degrees that i could apply for through clearing or alternative routes that would still allow me to apply for medicine as a post grad as i dont want to give up.

    Any advice would be much appreciated.
    Thanks

    You could apply for a course in a science related subject, e.g. Biomedical Sciences, Biochemistry, Neuroscience, and then apply as a graduate if you get a 2:1 or a 1st. There will probably be many such degrees available through Clearing this year...

    whats an abscess course..never heard of one before?!?

    i got offers from sheffield, manchester and keele.

    The only trouble is that i dont have A2 chem which stops me from applying for biomed/neuroscience as most unis want it to chem a2...unless anyone knows of any unis that dont require chem to a2 for those sort of subjects.

    I was being snobby about access courses.

    Why are you going for foundation year? If it's 'wrong' subjects then you're probably better off going back and getting the 'right' ones and getting decent grades in them.

    the whole a level syllabus has changed. gone for the foundation year because dont have chem to a2 but have bio. going back to college really isnt an option...well last resort but hoping it doesnt go to that

    Why didn't you just apply to the med schools that don't require Chem to A2? It's not as if they don't exist...

    And why is going back to college such a bad idea? A year extra to get your A2 or a year doing the foundation course... it's all the same in terms of time.
