So I was wondering about what grade I should he aiming for at GCSE level if i wanted to get into a medical uni . I know As and A stars are normally required, however since the new grading system has A Star Star (9) will it be harder to inpress medical universities? if you only got up to a A star? (8)

Always aim for the highest possible grade your ability allows you to achieve. GCSEs are looked at by medical schools to recognise long term excellence in academia, as well as a way of competition. There is no minimum GCSE grades for most medical schools however many applicants will have the highest grades of 7-9 (A to A*). It simply makes you more competitive than someone who got equivalent to C's, even if you have identical A Level results.
