    Hey, I have received my GCSE results today and i was very disappointed and was wondering if i was able to achieve my career goals. I am very academic and excel in Biology. My GCSE results were the following: Maths A (remark 1 mark of a A*), Biology A*, Chem A, Physics A, History A, Geography A, RS A, Citizenship A, Literature B, Language C (remark 1 mark of a B), French C, Arabic A, Furthermaths A, Art D. I am very worried about my English results and wanted to know if i can reach my career goals. The Sixth form that i chose recommends most of their students to take 3 A levels unless the student achieves 7 A*s or more.

    Thank you

    depends on how well you do at chemistry and biology A levels to be honest, but you seem very determined so keep it up

    Keep up the motivation and hard work at A level and you will do fine! Believe me those are fab results you shouldn't be disappointed (with hindsight it's easier to say that). Because you have a long-term goal, you will be more motivated to do well - keep it up Best of luck in the future.

    Look at medical school GCSE requirements here.

    You'll have to choose carefully where you apply, but not all is lost.

    My best friend has D in english literature and C in english language. He's a second year medic.

    You definitely have a chance, aim for universities like durham, newcastle, plymouth etc... Who don't look too hard at GCSEs.

    Im really interested in specialising in cardiac surgery and i understand that its very competitive. Im hoping that my english language remark goes well and i get that B and if my math remark gets an extra mark for that A* i should have a decent set. I have been looking at Imperial college of london and i reckon if i do well at A level i should have a chance. What do you think?

    You'll get the grades insha'Allah.

    I don't know much about Imperial's entry requirements.

    @Usycool1 may be able to help.

    Check Imperial's medicine page they said there is no GCSE requirements for this course. I guess you have to do really well at A level then
