    Basically, i have an offer from a university for a Foundation Year Medicine course. The offer is BBC. I was wondering if, lets say i met the offer spot on and got BBC, would that affect my carreer in the future because most doctors will have achieved AAA+. Like do employers care about a level grades even after you get a medical degree thats a good class like 1st or 2.1? I want to do my foundation years in London and i know how competitive it is and i was wondering if getting low A Level grades will affect my career in any way.

    Thanks.

    Nobody in medicine cares about what a levels you achieved. A levels are only necessary to get you in to medicine.

    P.s. medicine degrees aren't given classifications.

    Nope. Past the first week of medical school, A-levels aren't mentioned again (unless you have an old-fashioned Consultant berating you for not taking A-level Latin or physics due to your lack of knowledge).

    A-level grades only really came up during first year when people are desperately seeking ice-breakers. Other than that it doesn't matter other than the odd person bragging about A*s etc.

    tldr - they matter only for getting in.

    No I don't think it would have any impact at all.
