    Learn to spell Edinburgh.
    Maybe resit your maths and English GCSEs.*
    Run far away from TSR.

    Hello there, Can I please ask what you mean by a STEM programme?

    Your GCSE grades are a lot lower than what the average applicant has, you may struggle if your C grades include maths, english or science.

    Would you say 11 GCSEs mostly A/A*, mainly A, would be a good start if the unis I'm looking at arent GCSE focused??

    Oh ok brilliant thats great. You can apply to medicine providing you check that your GCSEs meet their requirements, yes that is not very many med schools but there are still a few.

    Hey, one question I like to genuinely ask all potential med students is DO YOU actually want to do medicine, at GCSE level the exam style is very different and you're probably more impressionable due to lack of experience through age and the pressure of parents, if thats not your case - well done medicine is said to be one of the most challenging yet rewarding careers!

    Your GCSE grades are very low comparison to other med applicants, and I'm not really sure what level you're at although i'm assuming you're in year 12? Iif so I'd look t the as results tomorrow for a better indication if youre going by gcse results yours are not bad but are definetly significantly lower than the typical med students, as usually their GCSEs are around 8 a*s and more. Dont get me wrong med schools are more heavily foused on the a level proprtion and gcses dont matter that much so long as you do welll in maths and english and one science - idelly all with A*s/A's in order to compete with the other candidates, its adviseable you resit the gcses maths and english as these days due to the a level reforms there will be a little more importance on gcse grades good luck!
