    Literally any Med, Vet, Dentistry, Biochem, Chem, Bio, so much. Those are Oxbridge, UCL, Duhram, Imperial, any university anywhere grades. As long as you interview well, have good work experience and PS as well. For any Uni below the top 5/6, an average PS will get you in with those grades. Are you going through adjustment, or reapplying next year?

    Your trio of subjects are perfect for Med, Vet, Chem,Biology, Dentistry, Biochem. You can apply and get in to any Uni, but maybe a good PS and work experience for Oxbridge & UCL.

    Maybe, phone some uni's up and ask. Do you have any extenuating circumstances?If your grades are well above the average at your school(like if you went to a really bad state comp), they may take that into consideration. Also, what did you get in your other gcses or is it that you have 5 GCSE's which are all a*\a?

    To be fair I did actually go to one of the worst high schools in my county. I got a few B's at gcse.

    I think the med school admins care more about gcse's than frikin a level results lol

    For someone with outstanding results, you do seem to lack common sense.
    It's obvious that you'll find any med courses with those tbf.
