Edinburgh Uni/ St AndrewsWatch
In my GCSE's I got 3 A*s and 7As and honesty I am gutted however is there ANY chance if getting into either Edinburgh or St Andrews for medicine because I've had my heart set on them and I saw the entry requirements for Edinburgh to be around 6 A*???
Thats just the average though, you might be able to make up for it through good A levels and Ukcat scores, although even that won't guarantee you offers. Its best to apply to med schools that put less weighing on gcse's if that's your aim.
Can you please show me which course at Edinburgh requires 6 A*s at GCSE? I can tell you none exist.
Your GCSE grades are superb and you know that. You have more than a chance at Edinburgh and St Andrews (provided solid A levels) - but you don't need me to tell you that.
for competitive courses at competitive universities, GCSE grades are important.
Go ahead. Tell me about how GCSE grades are not important for medicine.
For example, for medicine at Imperial as long as you have AAABB at GCSE in Biology (or Human Biology), Chemistry, English Language, Mathematics, and Physics, then applicants who have achieved these minimum grades and those who have achieved higher are treated equally in the selection process.
