    No further comment needed tbh. Question is clear - do Medical schools value achieved grades more than predicted grades? Would it give you an advantage over other applicants?

    I believe it may give you a slight advantage, but it will depend on many other factors as Medicine is so competitive, anyway.

    Of course haha, I'm not implying that grades are the sole factor considered by Medical schools - but it helps having an advantage, even if it's a slight one.
