    And in the competitive nature of med would you say modest cuts it or is not good enough?

    Mine are 3A*, 3A, 3B and a C. If you say modest = average, I'd say mine are a tad under.

    Modest cuts it. A friend of mine has 2 A*s, a few As, few Bs and a C and currently has two offers and one interview. I think as long as you have As in your sciences and don't apply to GCSE mad universities (Oxford, Birmingham, Kings and to an extent George's and Liverpool) you'll be fine.

    Congratulations on your offer for Soton 5000 applicants this year, but if you don't mind mind me asking why do you reckon you got rejections from your other unis?

    I know they're below average, it's a shame I didn't revise for GCSEs. I was thinking of applying to Leeds haha, any tips on where to apply with GCSEs as awesome as ours?

    I got an interview at Glasgow (though rejected after, haha) focus on UKCAT, get a good score and go for ones with cut offs (not sheffield unless you're in the high 700s)

    Ah unlucky about Glasgow, are you reapplying? And yes, UKCAT is going to be a major focus in a couple months time, just got a few AS levels to focus on then all my attention will be focussed on doing well in the UKCAT and making a good PS.
