    I am in my first year of biomedical sciences and would like to do medicine after I graduate. I didn't get the best of grades in the past (1 A* 4Bs and 4Cs) I have English at grade B and maths at grade C at GCSE level and at college I ended up doing a BTEC in science in which I got D*D*D* and an A in German.

    Which medical schools do I have a chance of getting in, given I end up getting a 2:1? I would prefer medical school that only want the UKCAT instead of the GAMSAT etc.

    Thanks.

    None of them will care about your GCSEs. You have perfect BTEC scores so I don't know what you're worrying about - as long as you get a good degree and a high UKCAT score I'd say you have as much chance as anyone else.
