    I've just got my GCSE grades and I was wondering if they are good enough to get into medicine or whether I should start looking at another career path:

    Biology: A*
    Chemistry: A*
    English Language: A*
    History: A*
    Spanish: A*
    Maths: A
    English Literature: A
    Latin: A
    Physics: A
    Religious Studies: A

    Also, will my As in maths and physics have an impact on whether I would get in?

    Your GCSE's look solid, but is there a reason you only did ten? I remember from my school we ended up with 14.

    For most medical schools your AS results, your predicted A level grades, UKCAT exams and interviews have more of a bearing than GCSE's so don't get too hung up on that. Just concentrate on doing well in A levels and getting first hand experience either in a hospital or a GP centre

    Those would be my tips to getting into medical school

    They are definitely good enough and A's in maths and physics wouldn't effect your application, it just depends on where you choose to go. For example, Birmingham requires 8A*'s at GCSE and some med schools like Nottingham, Cardiff, QUB, Leicester... use a GCSE point scoring system. But for most med schools you just need to meet the minimum requiremens which you definitely have.

    First of all, congratulations on your GCSE results. You should be very proud. I honestly think you should consider doing medicine with these results.

    First of all congratulations on your GCSE results. You should be very proud. I strongly believe you should consider Medicine. Don't really worry about the A's in Maths and Physics.

    Those grades are definitely good enough and maths and physics are also good. Birmingham needs 8A* at GCSE and some like Cardiff, Nottingham, Leicester and QUB have a GCSE scoring system but you meet the minimum requirements for most schools you just need to look around and see what suits you and which universities you like.

    Use a bit of common sense. There's no Bs in your grades of course they're good enough

    Hey

    Yes, your grades are amazing. You should give yourself credit and be proud of yourself! You stand a solid chance as you would be able to tell if you looked at the medicine entry requirements, so long as you keep this up with a levels and ukcat or bmat.
