    Do you have to get top A/A* grades for medicine or have people with lower grades gotten accepted in medicine?

    Well a guy who's came into my school talked about his degree in medicine and apparently he said the Unis look for 5-7 A*'s I think, not entirely sure.

    We were told we needed at least 5 A*s at GCSE but that's partly because we are a high performing school. If you go to a comprehensive and get in through a widening access program you can get away with fewer. Also with new AS reforms it may mean that unis want higher GCSEs as they no longer have ASes to base it on

    I think it depends what uni you want to go to. Places like oxbridge want at least 7 A* but as many as possible really, whereas other unis may accept you with lower grades.

    But usually as long as you have really good a level predicted grades unis dont worry about gcses as much.

    What grades are u predicted?
