    Heard medicine's extremely competitive, and this just gives me probably a false idea that they expect like full A*s especially at gcse which is easier than AS

    Nah, you won't even get an interview with those. Didn't you know you need at least 30 A*s to study medicine?

    Not Oxford. Try hard at A level for a slim shot at Cambridge, but I wouldn't risk it. In medicine, Oxbridge has no prestige beyond any other medical school- honestly

    GCSEs are just one part of the application. Even with mostly B grades, it's possible to get offers (although this would limit options!)
