    Not the results of a typical medicine applicant (especially with your B's in Science), but with a lot of hard work at A-level it's definitely possible. Good luck!

    You meet the GCSE entry requirements for most of the medical schools so it should be ok. Just work hard during A levels and get 3/4 A's and do work experience Good luck! everything is possible.

    It probably won't be easy for you because medicine is obviously very competitive and plus your sciences are at Bs but just work hard for A levels because that is what really matters. I want to study law in the future but didn't get the best grades possible either but I will definitely work harder for A levels and achieve my personal goals. Nevertheless you did great, well done for them and prepare and work hard for A levels. Good luck!!

    Medicine is probably the most competitive course, with a very higher applicant to offer ratio.
    It is definitely possible if try apply to universities that place less emphasise on GCSEs, and more on work experience, voluntary work, A levels etc.

    Good luck

    Imperial, BSMS, Leeds, Manchester, Newcastle, Durham, Lancaster and Cambridge are your friends.

    Edit: Also, how do you get an A* in Lit, but a B in Lang?

    Aww thank you for the recommendations! Even the idea of Cambridge seems so surreal to me! Well, I was literally only a mark off an A in language which annoyed the living hell out of me
