    If you haven't got the results you wanted:
    - this isn't the end of the world or the end of medicine in most cases
    - it may restrict which medical schools you can apply to in the future, however
    - before panicking, have a look at the links below

    A summary of the GCSE requirements for each university (for 2009 entry so possibly a little out of date) can be found here

    Information about the grades people have been successful at getting into university with can be found in the medics and applicants profiles thread here and should demonstrate the wide range of results that allowed people to obtain a place at medical school

    All threads concerning GCSE results will be merged with this one to keep it all together

    There's a GCSE specific thread at the top of the forum (the green sticky) which has a few links which should help put your mind at ease a bit

    Hey, I want to read medicine but are these grades fine?

    A* (Biology, Chemistry, Physics, English, Food, French)
    A (Maths, English literature, Art)

    and A* in chinese taken much earlier, does it count?

    Since I thought maths was quite important and I don't know if it's ok without it being an A*.

    Thanks x

    LUL I GOTS ME LIEK LOADZ OF TEH A*'RZ
    Since really only chemistry and biology are needed, and you got the highest grade you possibly could, why even bother threading? :confused:

    Im hoping for a similar career track but only got an A in chem, and B in bio, So im going to knuckle down at 6th form

    Not sure how to make this anonymous but if possible I'd like it to be

    Have just had my GCSE and one AS level results and while they aren't a complete unmitigated disaster, and I have nothing below a B, they aren't that great. Just seeking some reassurance that it won't affect my chances of getting into medicine, as long as I get good A-Level results. [I already ruled out Bham uni cause I want to get away from home, like London or Cardiff or Glasgow]. Do (m)any other unis have a value for the number of A*s they want? I need to decide whether or not it's worth getting papers remarked or resitting some of them. If it's not going to be worth it then I'll just leave them as they are and try to forget about it!
    For reference, I got A* in maths, french and RS(s/c), B in Eng Lit, History ( I was supposed to get A* in history) and AS computing, and As in everything else, inc. triple science.

    Thanks

    With a bit of care you shall be fine.

    For extra bonus points consult the various wiki tables on GCSE requirements before adding to the plethora of "Great flange biscuits of fire, I've not got all A*s! Is all hope lost?" threads.

    Good luck though.

    Only a few universities care really. As long as you have at least a B in english and maths then most top universities are happy.
    I got 4 A*s, 4 As and 3 Bs and I got accepted to warwick, york, cardiff and durham (got rejected from bristol, but everyone from my school did, even those who got in to oxbridge)

    If you choose your places right then yes. Some places want a certain amount of A*'s. Look at prospectuses and the TSR wiki to help you find out which ones you can apply to.
