    Got 5 A* 2A 3B, reckon that's suitable and normal for a person applying for a top university?

    Got 2 a's for core and additional science and b's for psychology maths and English language. I'm 4 marks off an a in English! Tbf as a foreigner in England who hasn't done any gcse's I think that's quite alright. Only lived here for a year and now going to a levels this September. Although I could have done much better in maths. .

    Hey everyone I got 7 A*/A grades today for my GCSEs (including English and Science) along with 2 Bs (one being Maths) and a C. Would this be good enough for me to apply to dentistry?
    Yep, of course, congrats!

    You certainly don't need 8 A*s to get into medicine. You have fantastic results and you've got a great foundation there for applying to study medicine. Well done!
    I do hope everything goes well and thank you!

    No you don't only for like Birmingham, imperial and Oxbridge honestly A levels will decide your fate more than GCSE's and a high UKCAT score in some places will guarantee you an interview, so there is still a lot of hope yet
    If you don't mind, when the time comes to applying can I get advice from you about which Unis would be suitable to apply to? I'm having a hard time finding out which Unis will focus on GCSEs as well, I mean I know they state a certain number of grade requirements but obviously there are so many people applying and most have a great number of A*s so I don't want to be at a disadvantage.
    In regards with A levels I want to study biology, chemistry, maths and then I'm quite split with english literature and psychology. I guess I got the A* in lit I would have gone for it but now I feel I really need to work hard for A levels and get the best possible results so would I be able to do that...? And then I've generally been interested in psychology for a while now, however talking to a teacher when I was choosing A level subjects a couple months ago she said that unis might prefer the english since it seems more 'tradition' and perhaps a bit more 'well-regarded'. Also it might set me apart from the large number applicants, I know of so many people choosing the same three subjects and psychology :/ Nevetherless I do enjoy English as a subject but what if I can't do as well especially since the standard at A levels are going to be pretty high.

    I've been hearing that on the news lately.. I still managed to get 98/100 ums in chem and 100/100 in physics :awesome:
    It's rather weird as 98 means you were only 3 marks of an A because the unit 3's were so tight between A and A*

    Yes that is no problem you will have to PM when it comes closer to the time or I will probably be around the medicine threads anyway

    regarding A levels I believe Universities would prefer the literature and it means you're still doing essays too which you will do in uni ! also it is more highly regarded than psychology. But you should really go for the subject YOU believe you will most likely get an A in but you can do that better if you find the subject interesting as you will work harder there isn't much more I can say so I hoped this helped

    Actually, I feel a bit better now. I think that I was more worried for the individual grades (got 4 Cs in the exams), and also the fact that the school publish the results online for the whole world to see. Moreover, I felt that I let my teachers down as they all believed I would get all A*s when in fact I got 1.5. Well, here are my grades:

    R.S. - A* (Short course)
    Photography - A*
    History - A
    Spanish - A
    Chemistry - A (even though I got like a C in the exam)
    Physics - A
    English Literature - A
    English Language - B (year 10 - I might retake an exam I got a C on)
    Biology - B (I might retake that as in one module I was due a free retake, and am still entitled to it, so I might do it and get an A*, so I can at least get an A and improve my grades)
    Maths - B

    I don't know whether it is Medicine standard or not though. I do feel a bit bad (mainly because of my parents - Asian of course). Do you guy think that these results are alright? And do you think I should retake some of them?
