For medicine in London you're probably looking at mainly As and A*s at GCSE and straight As at A level.

Good Luck!!!

GCSEs you'll need mostly As, with a handful of A*s at least, e.g. 5As 5A*s. Alot more important though is your AS levels next year, where you'll need AAAA or AAAAA to be confident of even a chance.

i agree there's an emphasis on grades but you also need to have done some extracurricular activities such as work expierience which highlights your key interest in medicine - it'll make you personal statement look great.

Grades are important, as people say, but the med schools tend to look for something more.

As an absolute minimum, I know that some people have got in to med school with say, 2A* 4A 3B etc and then AABB at AS. But most applicants have better grades than that - its just that they showed a real commitment and passion about becoming a doctor.

But, TBH, just do as best you can, remember that GCSEs are a game...it's about following the syllabus / past papers, knowing what sort of things are going to come up, and jumping through the hoops accordingly...
