    Yes (me) and plenty others - take a look at this thread: http://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/showthread.php?t=865511

    You don't need straight A*'s, but you need a good proportion at A*/A.

    Hello!

    Yes! Applicants with Bs get in! Most universities will look at your overall application, and you won't be discarded at the first stages if you have Bs at GCSEs.

    It is true, however, that many applicants you'll be competing against will have straight As/A*s. In order to make your application as strong as possible, you need to make sure that you're on track to get As and above in your AS/A levels.

    As well as this, you need to start thinking about getting some work experience under your belt. Have you been planning this? What are your next steps?

    B's are fine. But apply to your strengths. Do the research and see which schools fit your grades.

    However, you do seem to have a lot of B's, and in a lot of the core subjects.
    Worst case, if you achieve AAA at A2, you can take a gap year. Some med schools will place very little emphasis on GCSE's if you already have achieved grades so your B's would be no issue.
