    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.

    I don't understand when you say not specific enough:

    Keele:

    GCSE: 5As; maths, English & science GCSEs at a minimum of grade B
    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.
    NCL:

    AAA including Chemistry and/or Biology at A or AS level and excluding General Studies and Critical Thinking. For Biology, Chemistry and Physics A levels, we require a pass in the practical element. If only one of Biology and/or Chemistry is offered at A or AS level, the other should be offered at GCSE grade A (or Dual Award Science grade A).
    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.
    Bristol:

    Subjects required at GCSE or equivalent:Minimum five GCSEs at grade A to include Mathematics, English Language and two science subjects. In England, where numerical GCSE grades will start to replace letter GCSE grades, we will be aligning the two grading schemes as follows: 4 or 5 is C, 6 is B, 7 is A, and 8 or 9 is A*.
    This was all available from on the first page usually of the medicine page of each of those universities and will be the same for all med schools.

    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
