Can anyone help me with what medical schools don't place a massive emphasis on GCSE grades? I meet the minimum requirements for most Universities but just because I meet the minimum doesn't necessarily mean I'll get in. Any help would be much appreciated, btw I have 6A's 3B's and a Distinction in Additional Maths.

Newcastle As long as your GCSE and UKCAT meet the minimum requirement, you will be invited for an interview. Offers are made solely based on interview.

That's the plan, focus on my AS and then UKAT, I'm just really worried about whether my GCSE grades are going to stop me from doing medicine or not

No, they won't stop you from studying Medicine - have a look at this page: http://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/wiki...E_Requirements

You do meet the requirements for some Medical Schools. When the time comes, you will need to apply wisely and avoid Medical Schools that have high GCSE requirements. :yy:

Quite a few people have told me to apply wisely, but I have no idea where to start, I meet the minimum requirements for quite a few universities but then I don't quite meet the requirements for their admission policy, I have no idea where to start -.-

Well, it's up to you to do your own research so I'd suggest starting off by having a look at the websites for Medical Schools for which you meet the GCSE requirements for. Different Medical Schools have different things that they prefer so have a look at this page to help: http://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/wiki...your_Strengths

You'll be in a much better position to decide where you can apply after you get your predicted grades, UKCAT result, write your PS etc.

These should help; they certainly helped me when I was applying:
