Hiya I'm from Northern Ireland and I am currently taking my AS courses. In my GCSEs I got 1A*4A's and 5 B's. I am currently studying AS Chemistry, Biology, Geography and Business Studies. I really want to persue a career in medicine however I'm not sure weather my GCSEs are good enough to be considered. I am considering repeating my GCSE Chemistry and Buisness Studies exams to try and get up to 6A's?

People with worse GCSEs have gotten into medicine so you do definitely have a chance. You need to be very careful with picking your unis though and make sure to do well with other parts of your application. GCSE heavy unis like Oxford, King's, Edinburgh etc would probably reject you straight away tbh so you need to look at places that focus on the strengths of your application. If you get a great UKCAT you should consider Newcastle, if you're confident about getting a good BMAT you should consider BSMS and if you get brilliant predictions you should consider Exeter, for example. Don't really know what to say about the resitting - some unis might autoreject you because of the B in chemistry so you'd need to check that before applying, and some unis might not consider GCSE resits so you'd need to check that too. Good luck
