    For all medical schools if you meet the minimum requirement for GCSE's bar the ones who specify- like Oxford (C's minimum but really want 7A*s)- will the university look at your GCSE's again or will they use them as weighting for selecting for interview, and for the ones that do weight GCSE's how significant is the weighting with regards to the whole application.

    I realise this is rather a general question so I would like to inquire about Barts, Manchester, Newcastle, and Lancaster please.

    Thank you for your replies.

    For those you've specified i don't think there absolute GCSE whores such as Oxford, Kings or Birmingham but i'm sure they will take any GCSE performance into account when making decisions for interviews.

    Thats very good as I would have the maximum score so I wouldn't have to worry about that if applying there, clearly I'll have to do some research, go there, and see if it is right for me.
