    Hi all,

    I am currently 16 and studying my last year of my GCSE's. I would love to do medicine at University.
    My current target grades are:

    English: B (maybe an A if I push myself)
    Maths: A
    Chemistry: A*
    Biology: A/A*
    Physics: A
    Geography: B
    Business: A
    Resistant Materials: A
    Spanish: B

    I just want to know, if I could get into Medical school which these grades or if i really need to study hard.

    Thanks.

    You need to study hard, because having the highest possible number of A*'s will open more doors for you later on. You wouldn't be rejected because of your GCSEs by some medical schools if those were the grades you had to apply with, but similarly you would be frankly uncompetitive or just rejected out of hand by others if you applied to them. So do your best and make things easier for future you.


    As for whether you'll be accepted to medical school, there's no possible way anybody can say anything. There are so many more factors involved in selection, so it is pointless speculating about your chances until you have some work exp/volunteering, final GCSE marks, AS grades and a UKCAT score, as well as an idea of where you'd like to apply.

    It's about an awful lot more than grades, honestly if you put a lot of effort into choosing your med schools it can be the least important part of your application.

    Yeah they look good, but as someone already mentioned earlier, you should try and aim to get as many A*s as you can. However, if you don't then this would not significantly reduce your chances of getting in because they mainly focus more on A-Levels, work experience and admission tests.

    Hope it helps.
