    I want to study medicine.
    I got 3 A*s, 7 A's, 2 B's

    Considering that I want to study medicine and that it is a very competitive course, do you think I have a chance of getting an interview and a place?

    To be honest, I don't think your GCSE's would be quite competitive enough as according to the uni itself, the average applicant has 8.5A*s and it states on the website for an application to be competitive you should have mainly A*s and As.
    However, it does also say there's no official threshold for GCSE, and a very good BMAT score could compensate for a weaker set of GCSE's.
    It depends on whether you think it's worth an application, remember you only get 4 medical school choices.
