    Hey! So, I have been interested in psychiatry for quite a while and I am determined to go to medical school and complete the degree so I can therefore go onto psychiatry. However, I am confused at what I should aim to get for my GCSE's to be accepted into medical school. Along with this, what do I study in sixth form?
    Thank you

    Literally aim for as good GCSEs as possible, you can get in with 3/4/5 A*s, maybe even less if you're good in other areas. I know someone who got in with no A*s, so generally I tend to say that GCSEs aren't that important, but I did do reasonably well in my GCSEs so I don't actually know what it would have been like had I not done so well. But yh, every little helps!

    As for A-levels, do bio and chem and then whatever else interests you, a lot of people tend to do maths (most of the medics from my school did bio, chem and maths, apart from one who did physics instead of maths and another who did english instead of maths). So yh, you have free reign on that 3rd choice.

    Good luck with GCSEs
