    What about grad entrants?
    For some grad entry courses you dont need any alevels just a degree.
    Very true I guess. But wouldn't you say that the sheer competitiveness of graduate entry means that most successful applicants have near perfect grades? (Although we're probably arguing a moot point here since more knowledgable people have already said that A level grades don't matter post graduation)

    No. I personally know 3 people.
    One had no alevels
    One had BBB at alevel
    and the last had CCDD at alevel
    All grad entry medic in different years.
    No perfect grades there. They all had a lot of experience though.

    Some grad entry schools dont look at any GCSEs or Alevels (eg warwick, newcastle, nottingham, peninsular). They accept based on experience, degree class, entrance exam score and interview only.

    But as you said in bold the alevels dont matter anyway.

    Wow! Congrats to them. Just shows that A levels don't decide how good a doctor you can be. I can rest easy knowing that if I fail Classics it really doesn't matter haha

    I'm another BBBb graduate applicant, and got 3 out of 4 interviews. However, I got a 1st for my degree, so I kind of feel like that balances out the poor A-levels at unis like Liverpool where A-levels do matter for GEP. :dontknow:
