    Unfortunately, you will not meet Imperial Medical School's GCSE requirements with a C in English. You need to have at least AAABB in the sciences, maths and English (in any order). See if you bump the C up.

    I'm in year 12 and I was looking into Medical schools a few months ago. I looked into Imperial and decided it isn't worth it. It mostly consists of incredibly high-acheiving mathematics and computing students. Unfortunately this results in decrased diversity, with 80% of students being male. As you're also getting a C in English, you won't meet the entry requirments. I advise you to visit conferences such as Medlink, which may give you a better idea of Universities which would accept you based on your other strengths. Alternatively, check http://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/wiki...your_Strengths


    Thank you
    and also the C in english is just a predicted grade, i have been entered the higher english literature - so a B/A is what i think i could get

    i really neededy your input, thank you again!

    Try and get an a/a* if possible to increase your chances further. Remember there are no good/bad medical schools, look into others such as Plymouth and leeds etc.

    i just bought the revision book so i will start revising for that because i know that its a free GCSE - so obviously why would you waste it when you can take advantage of it.
