    My gcse grades were:
    Maths: A*
    Further Maths AQA : A
    Biology: A
    Chemistry: A
    Physics: A
    ICT: A
    Statistics: A
    Geography: B
    English Lang: C
    English Lit: C
    French: C

    It does not have to be at Kings or UCL, but I just want it to be at a Russell group university. I am doing maths chemistry physics and biology for a level if that helps.
    Thanks

    I think your English grades have to be higher than C, check on their websites.

    Oh, and UCL need a certain grade on a modern foreign language, I think it's a B.

    Why? :curious: You'll (hopefully) end up a doctor whichever Med School you go to.

    Your options will be be limited at most Med Schools with a C in English, however. Have a look here: http://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/cont...e-requirements

    Durham looks like a good choice because you only need C in english and it is a Russell group anyway. If I work hard at a levels and get good grades would that support my poor gcse grades

    You need to get the idea of russel group or a 'top uni' out of your head for Medicine - getting an offer from anywhere is so very competitive and all Med Schools in the UK are very good. As I said, you'll end up a doctor wherever.

    If you don't meet the minimum requirements for GCSE then I'm afraid that your application won't be considered, no matter how strong your A-Level grades are.

    Your grades are perhaps a little on the lower side for Medicine applications but certainly not poor. If you apply to places wisely and concentrate on nailing other parts of your application, you can still get in.
