    Anyone studying medicine at university who did below "average" in GCSE's?

    If so, please state your:
    GCSE results overall:
    AS results:
    Predicted grades:
    Alevel results:
    Ukcat/Bmat:

    And what you did to help make up for it: (possibly the university you applied to)

    This just a thead to motivate students into think that its still posible to apply for medicine

    Apparently not. Figures though, med is pretty competitive. You need at least 5A*s according to some, though all of the people I know entered with 9-12 A*s :/

    You're perfectly fine, as long as you don't apply to GCSE heavy medical schools.
