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 :/

Should be After all it's A level grades that they look at first when you apply. Don't worry to much hun, I'm sure you'll be fine

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