Currently studying;Biology,Chemistry,Maths and Ancient History at college(What minimum grades do I need for these?How will my GCSEs affect my chances at a medicine course?)
Im not expecting to get into Oxbridge or anything like that, just a medicine course at any Russell Group University!
Have any of you got into a medical course with similar GCSEs?
Thanks in advance

Have a look at the GCSE requirements for medicine at each university. You will meet most minimum requirements for english, maths and science. However, some universities have a point system where you need 416 points from top 8 GCSEs to be invited for interview (52 points for an A, 48 for a B).

Hey, first of all congratulations on a good set of results !!!!
But applying for medicine would be a grey area as the two most needed subject (Biology and Chemistry) they would NEED an A grade in. Maths is also significant but Biology and Chemistry are the main ones and most medical interviews contain questions on Biology and Chemistry so you would need to know the course inside out as they can ask anything!

Sorry for late reply, was on a camping trip
If you did get As in your AS/A levels then you should be fine since GCSE don't matter as long as you realistically don't have anything lower than a C. Also I am a Scottish student so I am not 100% sure what AS/A levels are equivelant to but I think that it is all good
