    Medical universities in Europe vaguely states that they just want qualifications in A levels. What does this mean? What sort of grades do they really want or do they not care? Also, how which medical universities in Europe actually have lesser competition?

    well, i do know that many of them take their own entrance test, on chemistry, biology and physics/math(some require math -.-). so they usually rely mostly on that and your interview im pretty sure.
    im not sure about which one is the least competitive but for example, Charles University in Czech republic, has 5 faculties in medicine, so you can apply for more than one of them, which i think would increase ur chances?

    Bear in mind that if a European uni doesn't seem to require high grades for entry, it might be the case that they have a tough first year and a 'cull' at the end of it - i.e. you need to out-perform other people for the places in second year.

    Does that mean you need to be in the top some percent to be able to stay on course?

    Like no. people who drop out/get kicked out cause the course abroad is so hard

    I'm thinking of applying to Charles in Prague but that's putting me off
