    I've just started Sixth Form, but i'm wondering if I should even bother trying to pursue entrance into medical school. I got 4 A*'s, 4 A's and a B. I see loads of people with 8-10 A*'s and it makes me wonder if my grades are adequate?

    Specific grades are as follows:
    Biology A*
    Chemistry A*
    Maths A*
    English Literature A*
    English Language A
    Further Maths A
    French A
    Physics A
    Computing B

    I've just began Maths, Biology, Chemistry and Psychology at A-level.

    Yup, they are fine as long as you apply wisely and avoid GCSE heavy places like Oxford. :yy:

    Depends on how good your school is; whether it's a comprehensive/private school. Your A Level grades will matter so much more - don't forget that there are quite a few medical schools and you don't have to just do it at Oxbridge/Imperial.

    The school I got my GCSE's at is a comprehensive, and my results were actually the highest in my year group. I didn't think what type of school I went to is relevant? I have since moved to the top grammar school in my county for Sixth Form, so fingers crossed!
