    Hi, I got my GCSE results today and I did not do nearly as well as I hoped to do. Therefore, I am enquiring if these results are good enough, or whether another career option would be suitable:
    Chemistry A*
    Biology A
    Physics A
    Maths A
    English lit B
    English lang B
    Geography B
    Computer Science B
    Art A
    ICT A*
    Drama A
    German A

    Thank you! A-level subjects options are welcome too!

    Hi, I'm sorry you didn't do as well as you hoped but those are still good scores. You meet the inimum requirements for many places, though be careful as some places demand A in english language. GCSE heavy med schools are ones like oxford, cardiff, nottingham, leicester, birmingham, QUB...
    As long as you ace the UKCAT/BMAT and choose wisely it should be fine

    A-level wise I would recommend biology, and you have to do chemistry. Maths isn't needed so don't feel forced to take maths but I wouldn't recommend taking art or something like that as they, unfortunately, aren't really seen as 'strong subjects'. So maybe psychology, a humanities or a language if you don't want a third science A-level
