    I got 1A*, 7As and 2Bs...I'm remarking one or two papers to get an extra A* or two and trying to change one of the Bs to an A (which is a mistake). I'm still applying dentistry.

    Medicine and Dentistry have similar requirements. I had 3A*s, 4As, 7Bs and 1C. But I still got 3 interviews and an offer.

    You'll be fine. Just make sure you do really well in UKCAT/BMAT, have a near perfect personal statement and get good predicted grades (at least AAA obviously)

    I had interviews at Plymouth, Exeter and Aberdeen. I got my only offer from Aberdeen

    It's all about doing your research and applying to the right places depending on your strengths. I did really well in UKCAT, so Aberdeen was a clear choice for me, which was a more UKCAT heavy med school.
