First of all – don’t worry! Our best advice would be to firstly check your grades against the entry requirements of the med schools you’re interested in via their websites. You can also see them here:
- GCSE Requirements for Medicine: https://www.themedicportal.com/application-guide/choosing-a-medical-school/gcse-requirements-for-medicine/
- A-Level Requirements for Medicine: https://www.themedicportal.com/application-guide/choosing-a-medical-school/what-a-levels-do-you-need-to-be-a-doctor/
Don’t worry about messing up your personal statement/interviews/UKCAT before you’ve started applying! There are plenty of ways you can prepare to better your chances of success and we have lots of resources to help! With UKCAT and interview, practice is key – so spend time answering UKCAT practice questions (we have a free UKCAT question bank here: https://www.themedicportal.com/e-learning/ukcat/) and working on your weakest areas. We also have a free Interview Question Bank (https://www.themedicportal.com/e-learning/interview/) which you can use to practice your answers with a friend.
We also have a section on how to perfect your personal statement: https://www.themedicportal.com/application-guide/personal-statement/
However, if you don’t get a med school offer – there are plenty of options! You could take a year out to work on strengthening your application and then reapply (https://www.themedicportal.com/application-guide/choosing-a-medical-school/reapplying-to-medical-school/), or consider Graduate Entry Medicine (https://www.themedicportal.com/application-guide/graduate-entry-medicine/), or take a look at Allied Healthcare Professions (https://www.themedicportal.com/application-guide/dentistry-nursing-allied-health/)
Hope this helps! 🙂
