    It depends how you do on your UKCAT - that plus your GCSEs dictate your score, this they use to judge you if you haven't got your A-Levels.

    4 A's is grand - everyone who's applying will probably have at least that score, so it's not an automatic guarantee for entry. But it probably is enough for interview at most medical schools.

    If they come across as having all the compassion of the lovechild of Harold Shipman and Josef Fritzl obviously not.

    No. I think you'll find the majority of applicants will have straight As as well...

    No, if they have more people with those grades applying than offers to hand out then they've got to reject someone with that...

    No- there is so much more to getting into medicine than AS grades.

    Everyone who applies for medicine basically has all A grades at AS and most unis don't care about your UMS, unless it's cambridge or UCL. So the answer is no. You need a stellar personal statement too, and a good UKCAT or BMAT score if needed. Some also place weight on GCSE grades.
