    Hi, I'm currently in the process of preparing for my summer AS exams and I'm also starting to think about my UCAS form preparation (UKCAT, BMAT, relevant work experience, extra curriculars etc.) so, i'm unsure if these GCSE grades are good enough. In my GCSE's. I got 4 A* in Maths, History, Physics and RE and I got 8 A in my other subjects including Biology and Chemistry. For my A-Levels, I've taken Biology, Chemistry, Maths and French and I'm predicted to get an A in all of them. Also, some unis require more than 4-5 A* like Cardiff at GCSE therefore I don't know if they consider A-level grades more than GCSE grades.

    They're completely fine, get a good amount of work experience and you'll be splendid
