Average GCSEs, do I still have a chance for medicine?

    Hi people!
    I'm an international school student currently in my first year of IB. Just got my IGCSE results in August and here are my results:
    First language English: A
    World Literature: A
    First Language Chinese: A
    Cambridge International Mathematics: A*
    Additional Mathematics: A
    Coordinated Sciences (double award): A*A*
    Geography: A*
    Design and Technology: A*
    Global Perspectives: A

    So even though the minimum requirement for UCL medicine is like grade B for english and math, but most applicants are probably highly achieving in the academic area. And let's say I can get a 40/45 for my IB, any thoughts on my chances for UCL?


    You have met their minimum GCSE and IB criteria so stand as good a chance as any.

    Focus on BMAT prep and good luck.
