So I got my gcse results today:

English Language (aqa)- A*
English Literature (aqa)- B
Maths (edexcel)- A (one mark of A* so I'm remarking)
Biology (cie igcse)- A*
Chemistry (cie igcse)- B (really high B so I'm remarking)
Physics (cie igcse)- B
French (edexcel igcse)- A*
Latin (ocr)- A
History (aqa)- B
Religious Studies (aqa)- A

I can't even think of doing anything but medicine, and I'll be going for Queen Mary, Kings, UCL, Imperial (?) or St George's.

Those are good results especially with successful remarks and I don't think they will hinder you. What's important now is trying to find some clinical experience/ voluntary work to get an insight in the career and show dedication when writing personal statement and in interviews.

Hello
Your grades are perfectly fine for medicine (and those unis). GCSE grades make up a rather small part of the overall application.
Check this article out, and you'll see that you meet the minimum requirements for many med schools.
