    Yes, but A-Levels are far more important.

    if you actually look at the cambridge website they say that GCSE grades barely impact your chances of getting in and only give the university context of the person so you have a solid chance. however, medicine is incredibly competitive and you'll really need to get some kind of experience and summer school at cambridge.

    This is a really silly question (Pretty sure you know this so you went anon)
    Those GCSEs are more than satisfactory. Maybe avoid Oxford, Birmingham and Cardiff who score applicants on A*s but you're good enough for any other place. Your A level predictions and your UKCAT score are equally important, if not more. Focus on getting those A*/A predictions at A level now!

      If you don't have 42 a*s or more then don't bother applying.

      Sick of these posts.
      On a serious note, why do you people who make these not think about just researching and googling it yourself? I see about 4 of these everyday with the same answers.

      Your GCSE's are absolutely fine for Cambridge, they don't seem to be looking at GCSE's much. Like said previously, focus on doing your AS and A levels. The places that really look at GCSE's are Oxford and Cardiff. Try the medic portal website, they have a lot of useful information on there.
