    Of course you do, just make sure to apply smart and don't apply to the universities that priorities good GCSEs. For most medical schools, they just see if your GCSEs are better than or equal to the minimum requirement, and then move onto more relevant information

    You do not need 5A*s and 5As, that is an absolute lie! Do some research into the different medical schools, and you'll see that you have a fantastic chance of getting in if you get the right experience/AS grades/UKCAT score/BMAT score

    These grades are absolutely fine, just make sure you avoid GCSE-heavy universities and that you focus this year as good predictions/high UMS can make a big difference and compensate for your GCSEs.
