    I think for UCL, you need a B at least for English language.
    But yes, you can still get into a good university.

    There are a lot of factors to consider. Your best bet to see all the requirements for medical schools is following this link:
    http://www.medschoolsonline.co.uk/sc...vers-standard/

    There are still variables like your personal statement, entrance exams and interviews.

    You can also consider doing a degree before med school and applying via graduate entry scheme although it is more competitive

    There's lots of variation between institutes, it's possible to get into many 'good' med schools if you make up for the weak points in your application, and their priorities work in your favour.

    Do take time to think about why you got below average GCSEs for a medical applicant - is it because you didn't bother at GCSE (but now you've found your passion and will put in the time to get top A-levels)? Or is it that you did put in good effort but you're just not great at academic work? Or a very reasonable 'extenuating circumstance', such as an illness or family commitment, etc. You need to be academic for Medicine - you need a great memory, good articulation, good writing skills, good critical thinking. I obviously don't know you or your circumstances, but many people do apply for Medicine without sufficient motivation, or sufficient academic ability, for the sake of it being Medicine, so do confirm to yourself that Medicine is the right choice for you.
