Post Polytechnic student to pursue Medicines overseas

Hi all, I'm currently a Year 2 Biomedical Science student, I am interested in pursuing Medicines.

I screwed up my exams last sem so, i have a pretty bad GPA of 3.6 ...
I am actively involved in Residential Council as an RC observer and holds the executive position in student council club in school.

I've looked through multiple overseas medicine entry requirement, they either accept A level students or GPA of 3.8 and above. I do not hold any O level qualification, I was from Direct Poly Programme, (N level to Higher Nitec) so most of the school, won't take me in, I'm at a great disadvantage without O lvl cert.

I might even face difficulties entering local Uni as ALL uni take into account 80% of Poly grade and 20% of O lvl great. Someone advise me, please.

Will it be better for me to try taking an undergrad locally then move on to duke-nus

Or should I study aboard ? , but majority aus uni don't accept diploma applicants and I have to take a bachelor degree and compete to convert to medicines which is EXTREMELY HARD as there are local talents and people with straight As in GCE A levels will be aiming for that as well.

SOMEONE HELP ME PLEASE

You can consider doing a one year foundation at an aus uni and then apply for med using Ur foundation results. But do check with the education agents if u need an o level cert or diploma to enter foundation.
