    Is 8 GCSEs enough for top institutions/top courses (ie medicine).

    I achieved 5A* grades (English language, maths, geography, religion and additional science), and 3 A grades (core science, English literature and Spanish). Is this enough when applying to top institutions or for highly competitive courses?

    I see people with, for example 11, 12 or even more GCSE exams but I sadly didn't have this chance (I didn't take triple science and stupidly chose to take DiDA rather than another academic subject; wish I took history/French looking back now)..

    Anyway I hope somebody can help me and I hope you are all happy with the results you achieved. I certainly am, just worried that the amount of GCSEs may not be enough for the very best unis.

    I don't think A-Levels count in this, as this is average GCSE scores. it's probably just the UMS (total?). I can't really tell. Where is it written on ur sheet? Unless your school is different. I think maybe it is UCAS. Did someone tell you that it wasn't UCAS?
    No it definitely is counted in the gcse score as ums wise I got 578 and in terms of ucas it is 140 points . Does this mean that unis will have to see this as 5a* gcse alongside my gcse results

    I got 3A*'s 5A's and 2B's,pleased with the results but is it good enough for medicine?

    Perfectly good enough. For example, at UEA to study medicine you only needed 6 A Grades. You surpassed that.

    Cambridge or Oxford may be out of the question, but if you do as well with your A-Levels and have a good UKCAT/BMAT score, work experience and interview, you'll be fine.


    Remember, for medicine it's more than just the grades.

    You'll need pretty much straight A's at A-Level, and they're harder, so bear that in mind.


    I want to do a degree in Pharmacy, but originally I did want to do medicine.

    Your grades are fine for medicine so don't worry about that, and history would be worth a remark not so sure about PE though

    No, an AS is just counted as an AS. Maybe it is the school's score? My friend did AS Maths early, but his sheet didn't have anything like that on it (st least I don't remember). But all I know is an AS is just an AS. It doesn't count towards your GCSE Results, even if you took it during your GCSEs. Do you get me?
