    Jamie - if you didn't have parents that went to uni or come from a poor school there are schemes that allow you to bypass some of the grades. For example Sheffield run a scheme where if you were eligible you are guaranteed an interview. Would be worth looking at your nearest unis to see.
    Yeah I went to a very poor high school. I have just checked the newspaper article and 33/99 pupils gained 5+ GCSE's, not necessarily all including English and Maths which would further decrease the number. Also 32 pupils gained 0 GCSEs which makes my results seem much better in perspective. The college I am also going to qualifies for contextual data which could also work in my favour if I do well. Yeah Sheffield isn't too far away. I also have Manchester, Lancaster, Leeds and Liverpool as 'local' med schools.

    Edit: The only person in my family who has ever gone to uni is my uncle and I hardly speak to him so I have no family history at uni

    Just got my results and got 6 A*s and 6 As. Im going to remark all 3 sciences as they are all in between 1-3 UMS marks off. Will i still make it into Oxbridge (imagining i get 4 A*s at A level)? Thanks for your reply.

    AABBBBBB - I realised very late that Medicine was something that interested and captivated me, I have experience working in Pharmacy and have qualifications regarding that, but I know I'm affected by my GCSE grades.

    Any ideas on where I should look at?

    I got 6 A*s 4 As 3Bs and I got interviewed at Cambridge medicine. With good AS scores you can get into Cambridge. For Oxford medicine it may be a bit tougher with 6A*s and 6 As as they weight your GCSEs and BMAT. Compensating for your GCSEs in the BMAT will be tough because of how difficult the BMAT is.

    Hi, looking for a bit of advice. I received my GCSE results last week. I gained a D in my additional science GCSE. When I contacted the school I was 8 marks off a C grade. School are not keen to put forward for a remark, as they say that this is too many marks away from a C. Has anyone got a remark with so many marks away in science and got a positive grade change?Many thanks

    My GCSE results were;
    Maths A*
    RS A*
    Biology A
    Chemistry A
    Physics A
    English Language B
    English Literature B
    History B
    Spanish B
    ICT C
    So 2A*s 3As 4Bs and C, I went to a very very poor school where over 30 kids didn't get ANY GCSEs so hopefully this gives me a boost. I will be doing Maths, Bio and Chem next year do I realistically have a chance?
    Bruh do not worry about it. I got 3 A*'s, 5 A's and 3 B's and I'm starting Cambridge for medicine in 2 weeks. Unfortunately some of us go to awful high schools but medical schools take that into account.
