    Hey, firstly I apologise if this question has already been asked...

    I've been researching into Medical Schools and realise that most (although not all) have minimum GCSE requirements. I got 7A* at GCSE which is decent enough (I think.) The problem is, a lot only look at your 9 top grades including Maths, English Lang, Biology, Physics and Chemistry. Out of these subjects I only got 1A*, the rest A's leaving me with only 5 A* all together. I guess what I'm asking is will universities dismiss my applications despite my having 7A* because only 5 will show...

    I appreciate any feedback and help. Thanks

    You're GCSEs are very good. All of the universities look at GCSEs in different ways so don't worry. Focus on your AS subjects and do some research.
