Can I apply to medicine with my GCSE grades? watch

    • Thread Starter

    So I came to this country in November in the middle of year 11. As I came late the school wouldn't offer me many GCSEs (as it's usually a 2 yr course). With just 7 months to prepare I ended up getting AABBBBC. Im now doing biology chemistry and maths A levels and I want to do medicine. But I feel because of my bad GCSEs unis won't accept me. Any advice

    In 7 months you achieved amazing grades. If you let the universities know about your situation you will not be at a disadvantage. Email them though because you should know first hand what your options are.

    Hi - if you look at places like Newcastle University, there is more of a focus on A levels and relevant experience. You have the right A levels, so as long as you achieve within the AAA-AAB range then GCSEs usually only come in when you may not have hit that range. I worked at Durham/Newcastle medical school for a while, so I got friendly with the admissions teams
