Are my GCSE's enough for studying medicine at university? Watch
As you all know GCSE results day wasn't too long ago, I managed to get 5 A*s and 7A's. My question to you is- are these enough for getting into medical school's like Keele, Newcastle and Bristol? I have already checked the entry requirements for these universities but obviously they are not specific enough.
Science/core science (including AQA Science A or Science B) plus additional science is acceptable as an alternative to biology, chemistry and physics. If further additional science has been taken, this must also be passed at grade B. IGCSE double-award science is also acceptable. Applied science is not an acceptable GCSE.
Once the academic criteria have been met, academic achievement is not considered further in subsequent parts of the application process e.g. additional A levels or A* results or additional GCSE results are not considered.
Your GCSE's are all A's and above so you should meet the criteria of almost all the med schools. Again, do check with the med schools to ensure you meet their specific criteria. Not that you need to worry yet. You haven't started A-levels and requirements sometimes differ year to year.
Hope this helps
