I'm doing my A-Levels now and i'm working really hard, however my gcses aren't the best as i got 11 C's, should i work really hard on my a levels and then retake my gcses after college? Because i really am interested in this job, and i feel like my GCSE results are stopping me

I've moved this to the medicine section of TSR.

You're more likely to get a useful reply in this section of the site when asking about a medical career rather than posting in the "advice on everyday issues" section :h:

It depends on choice of Uni, A-Level results and UKCAT score.

Some universities are more lenient towards GCSE grades as long as you do well in your UKCAT and A-Level results with a strong personal statement whereas some demand certain GCSE results (usually, mostly five A*/A, in subjects such as maths, English, biology and chemistry)

Please know that these are variable across different universities whom receive roughly 10 applicants for every place and most of these applicants will be producing excellent records of attaining high grades.

Please note that most universities don't accept resits for GCSE and/or A-Level results without proof of extenuating circumstances reasoning for the resit.

Don't be disheartened by that news though, with the right choices and relevant work/voluntary experience you could easily get a place.

Good luck, and if you need any questions answering on the best universities to apply to in your case feel free to message me.

What exactly do you want to do in cardiology? If you want to be a cardiologist, you need to study medicine, and your GCSEs are very weak for that, though if you got excellent A-levels, UKCAT etc there may be a few options open to you. If you want to be a cardiology nurse or cardiac physiologist, then their entry requirements are different.
