    Just got my GCSEs back and got:
    Geography A*
    ICT B
    Core Science A
    Additional Science A
    Further Additional Science A*
    Engineering B
    English Lang A
    English Lit A*
    History B
    Maths A
    French D

    Overall it works out at 3A* 4As and 3Bs and also that D in French. I know that most look at around top 8 which is why I was hoping for 8A*-A but I only got 7 with less A* than I wanted. Are the Bs going to block me from being competitive and is the D in French going to be a black mark against my name?

    What I really want to know is that with A levels in Maths, Chemistry, Biology and English Lit which would obviously have to be AAA as well as a good personal statement and UKCAT could I get an interview at any medical schools and which ones would be the best to apply for in the future?

    Just wanted to say thanks for joining The Student Room: welcome on board!

    How's it going so far? Found what you need? Below I've listed a few things you might fancy trying on TSR. If you've got any questions, add them to the TSR news, help and feedback forum.

    Put your work head on:
    No matter what level or subject you're studying, you'll find someone on TSR who can help. Find your subject in the Study Help forum and ask a question or visit our brilliant revision section for help and advice. And if you're planning on going to university, you have to visit our uni applications forum. It's full of people who can help you through the whole process.

    Take it easy:
    You know there's more to TSR than studying, right? In Hobbies and Interests you'll find people talking about everything from the latest football scores through to what mobile phone to buy next. Or how about the Debate and Current Affairs forum? Latest news, politics, education...it's all fair game in here.

    That's just a taster, of course. To find even more conversation, head to the Forums page and find a place to start up your own discussion.

    Enjoy the site!
