    I was hoping to apply to medicine with a foundation year course at 4 uni's.
    My stats are
    A2 predictions- AAB (entry requirements for uni's vary BBC-ABB)
    The reason why my GCSE grades are poor is because I was soo lazy in high school and didn't revise much for my exams. However, in college I worked really hard and achieved AA in AS in Bio and Chem. (the whole determination was that I really really want to become a doctor!)
    Also, I think I have a pretty strong personal statement. I also meet the specific criteria for every uni (first to apply for higher education etc, and non academic requirements)
    Do you think I still have a chance with poor GCSE grades, but have a strong personal statement, good UKCAT, and predicted AAB (which is above entry requirements) to be at least selected for an interview.
    I know that MANY students will have excellent GCSE results who are applying to this course...
    Do unis consider your personal statements and ACTUALLY read EVERYONES as a selection process for candidates invited to interviews too?
    Thank you!
What's the best type of cheese?
