I'm not being funny but this is just ridiculous. How the hell could top level grades NOT be good enough for medicine? If you have the intelligence to get these grades then you have the intelligence to know that they are good enough.

Obviously these are good results and I'm not denying that but a lot of medicine students have better gcses with more A*s so I was wondering if I would be at a disadvantage.

Obviously really fantastic grades! I'm also planning to pursue a career in medicine. Securing fantastic GCSE grades are just the first step, now you have to do the same thing for A-Levels, UKCAT/BMAT and lots of work experience. Which A-Level subjects did you choose?

I fail to see why you're bumping - you've got lots of good replies already.

I got almost the same results as you, with the A* being in Maths rather than chemistry and an A* in stats (6A* 6A), and am planning to do Medicine.

You have done amazingly well, and definitely enough for medicine. Just don't apply to Oxford as they like high proportions of A*'s.
