They're good enough to allow you to do A Levels, so providing you work VERY hard at them and get excellent grades then there's no reason why you shouldn't! Don't rest on your laurels, though, because medicine is a very competitive course at almost every university.

Are you sure? I thought most A-level courses required 4 or 5 GCSEs A*-C.

Which he/she has, so there's no problem.
Different medical schools have differing policies when it comes to GCSE's - some will want A grades, others are more flexible. Check the requirements for the schools you may be thinking of replying to and work hard for your A levels, get some relevant work experience and see what you can do.

Definitely check the requirements as I think majority of the 'major' medical schools with want at least a B in English GCSE (I know some foreign prospective medical students who have had to retake English GCSE to get that required B)

hehe it's okay

to the user with the grades though, I'd advise you to discuss it with your college before you enroll, so you can re-sit anything if you need to!

I got about the same GCSE's. Most ppl that I met that wanted to do medicine got like 10 A* and were predicted 4/5/6 A's at A level!! I worked really hard on my AS's and made sure that my teachers predicted me AAB/AAA on the UCAS form. I also did a lot of work exp and went on courses such as MedLink and Medsim. Though a few unis werent open to me such as Notts, st georges and manchester- i still got into med school (after pain and suffering). So I'm positive that you can do it, if you have commitement and desire.
