    Currently, I have achieved 6 A*'s (mathematics, English language, physics, electronics, Punjabi and history) alongside 4 A's (biology, chemistry, geography and FSMQ maths) with 2 B's (English literature and French)..

    If this is the case, which universities should I be looking at with my grades?
    They are fine. You will just need to avoid Med Schools that like seeing lots of A* at GCSE (e.g Oxford).

    they are really good gcse results.Congrats!!!! i am 100% sure that you can get into dentistry or medicine. Although gcse results are important, your A levels will be more important for you to get into a good uni.

    Do you think with 8A*s and 4As, it's worth even considering Cambridge (considering I get the required AS, A level grades, good BMAT score etc.)?

    They're fine for Cambridge, but they look at other things.
