    Depends what you got overall tbh. Kings checks how many A* grades you have, I think that they check the top 10 GCSEs. To be honest GCSEs aren't the end of the world for medicine, a levels and UKCAT are more important. However you must consider that most applicants will have mostly A* and As at GCSEs. Also if you go to an under performing school they are more lenient.

    right first of all your GCSEs are not bad but medicine is really competitive you will have to apply to non gcses heavy unis and to compensate you need strong predicted grades at A level and solid UKCAT but best of luck
