Default Chances for getting in Medicine school overseas

Hi everyone, so I just got my A level results yesterday and I was wondering if I could qualify for any medical school in perhaps Aus(preferred) or UK?
My grades are :
H2 Physics : A
H2 Maths : A
H2 Chem : B
H1 Econs : B
GP : B

So I was wondering if I could qualify for any SMC recognised unis? Im looking at Monash but Im not sure if I can qualify and I do no want to waste $$ taking UKCat Or ISAT if I do not have the chances.

Was also looking at TCD, any comments on this one?
Thanks guys

Sorry but, "waste $$ taking UKCAT or ISAT"??

Overseas med education in Aus/UK can set you back by half a million SGD. If you feel that the SGD ~ $300 for admissions test (which is needed by almost all Aus/UK) schools are a waste of money, then i suggest you rethink your options because overseas med is extremely expensive. Sorry, I am just giving you a very practical perspective.

Btw, UK is only looking for AAA now, so don't apply there.

TCD is a part of the IUMC medical schools which also include UCD, Galway, UCC. Generally your results should qualify for the interview. But be prepared to pay a deposit of $50k in 2 weeks after getting an offer letter and show proof of bank account to the ireland Uni that you have enough to pay for the next 5 years (~400k in bank account). Because they want these details. Been there done that, turned them down because I had insufficient funds.

Sorry about the waste $$ for the ISAT thing and yes I know I need at least half a million, its just that if I have no chances at all then taking ISAT would still be a waste of money haha well $300 is still money.

Thanks for the input, how about aus medical schools? Do my results qualify?

I'd say try for UTAS Med school. It's one of the cheapest and better schools IMO. You'll definitely qualify, maybe even for a scholarship by the school too.
