    Hi I done my GCSEs this year and I achieved the following:

    A* Maths
    A* Biology
    A* Physics
    A* Chemistry
    A* French
    A German
    A Geography
    A Graphics
    A Business
    B Business
    B English Language
    B English Literature

    Will any good universities want me and should I even dream of doing something like medicine?

    P.S - I am taking Biology Chemistry Physics and Maths next year in A levels.

    Thank You.

    Hello,

    Firstly define "good" universities when considering medicine?

    Besides that, your GCSE's are fine. Your sciences, English and maths should meet the minimum entry requirements for most universities even those with slightly higher grades (although Bath and Southampton BM5 may be out due to the B in English) However, policies change so don't worry about the tiny details until next year.

    Don't stress. Right now focus on good AS grades, work experience and volunteering. This is what can trip applicants up if year 12 is not used to your advantage. When the time comes BMAT and UKCAT will also be big deciding factors as to what schools you can apply for.

    This is only because admissions vary so much between universities its all about applying to your strengths.

    Good luck and hope this helps.

    Yes that's a fine set of results, congrats. Lots of med schools would consider you, but it would be a good idea to avoid the ones which use GCSEs heavily when picking interview candidates e.g. Oxford, Cardiff, etc. More info here:
