    GCSEs and A levels vary per medical school.

    You need to get into medical school

    Get through medical school

    Do 2 years of a foundation job

    Start specialising.


    I would suggest learning to be an independent person by doing your research on how all this works as you will need it to be a GP.

    3 or 4 C or D grades should see you right. Best subjects are Film Studies and and Drama. You need a minimum of Grade D in maths and English.

    There we go. No need to do any research now yourself, is there or anything as onerous as go on Google.

    Hey don't spread false information

    Anyway you need a minimum of 7 C to apply to some medical schools but if you do not want to limit your choices later on.

    You need 8 A*s or 90% A*s to apply to the gcseheavy schools.

    Which would mean there is no medical school you couldn't apply to.


    After your gcses you would need to take biology and chemistry.to take biology and chemistry at alevel. You usually need a minimum of Bs in your science gcses.In some areas you usually need As to take science at alevel.

    Also you need Maths at a minimum of a b to take science .

    Even if you don't get the A*s or As in your subjects try to get Atleast Bs and above in science and maths and english.

    Anyway for your third subject you need to choose something rigorous like: Maths , English language and English Literature, Physics,Economics or Computer Science or a Language or History or Geography and etc.

    Anyway choose something from that list that will guarantee you an A* or A at Alevel

    Do not do critical thinking or general studies or Psychology or Pe or futher maths or media studies or film or drama.or English language on its own

    Anyway after that you will need to sit the ukat \bmat depending on which unis you want to apply to.

    You will also need a very good personal statement.

    You will also need a minimum of two weeks worth of work experience in a care setting.
    This could be in a hospital or care home or a nursery or at a Gp practice or at a pharmacy or a hospice and etc.

    I did get the point .You wanted them to get the information on their own. But they did make this thread for a reason so why thwart their attempts

    Because the original post was just 'what GCSE/A levels do I need to be a GP'. Ignoring the point that the specialism is irrelevant (which again suggests that very little research has been undertaken), if you can't find that out by yourself then it doesn't bode very well for something as driven, self-starting and competititve as medicine. Maybe I'm being too harsh.

    You're aware that psychology is taught during the pre-clinical years of medical school, right? :dunce:

    It's only Cambridge who ask for three sciences - so that's not really a specific bias against psychology is it?
