    Hello, I really want to do medicine so I can become a paediatrician, but at gcse's I only got one A*, 6 B's and the rest mostly C's. Is there anyway I can go into medicine? Any universities that do not look at gcse's, or perhaps is there any other way to get into it? I am currently taking biology, chemistry and psychology at A-level.

    All medical schools will consider GCSE results but some will place more emphasis on them than others. Your GCSEs are okay, what did you get for maths and English language?

    These links are a good place to start your research but they're getting out of date, so make sure you double check on the uni websites:
