To answer your question having looked through the minimum requirements for GCSE for medicine, your grades would only qualify you for two unis - Exeter and Plymouth. I'm not 100% sure of plymouth's interview selection process but to get an interview at Exeter this year you had to be predicted 3A*s at A2. I think Plymouth places more focus on the UKCAT as well.

Basically to summarise: unfortunately unless you're predicted very highly in A2 for Exeter and do very well on the UKCAT for Plymouth I would avoid applying to medicine - which is the most competitive course you could apply to and academically is far more rigorous than anything you will cover in GCSE.

I'm sorry to say this but it is fairly unrealistic with your grades :/

Consider graduate entry if you really want to do medicine?
