Alternative pathways into MBBS?

Hi, I’ve just completed my A levels and I got bad grades.

Maths: D

Chemistry: D

Physics: E

I was really hoping to join an MBBS course but direct entry requirements are wayyyy too high. Could anyone recommend alternative pathways ? Ive been looking at completing a BSC in BioMedicine then applying for an MBBS. Any suggestions would be highly appreciated.

Hi Jay

Do you mind if I ask what you got at GCSE for these subjects. How are you finding these A levels? Did you just have a bad day in the exam or are you genuinely finding these subject challenging? Only you can answer these questions. At the end of the day, you need three A grades for Medicine. To get three A grades is very challenging even for the brightest of students. Foundation course, you might need to fall into a certain category to be eligible. Good luck, work hard and try your best that is all one can do.
