    I've just got my GCSE grades back and overall I got 1A*,5A's,4B's. I got a BB In science and a B in maths but my school still said I can do maths and biology and chemistry at A level. When looking at unis I do meet a lot of the requirements but then people say you need 7/8 A*'s or more? I volunteer in a hospital on wards and have hospital work experience booked. Please would anyone be able to tell me if I stand a chance!
    Good morning

    Don't worry! Needing 7 A*s or more to stand a chance is not true - it totally depends on which Medical School you're applying to.

    For instance, you want to avoid Cardiff, as the Cardiff Med School focuses heavily on GCSEs during the selection process.

    Other than that, if you get great AS levels and A levels, then you're in a good position to apply to plenty of other Medical Schools!

    Congrats on your GCSEs by the way!
