    Yes! It does rule out a few places (Oxford, Birmnigham, Cardiff probably some others too) but you definitely still can. Focus on getting A*/A predictions and a good UKCAT score to compensate now

    Those GCSEs definitely are not ideal for medicine however as said before if you ace your levels, get a high UKCAT etc, then it may compensate for your GCSEs, just apply strategically

    To be honest your chances are slim, you need to work very hard over the next two years if you want to be considered, the majority of applicants have at least As with a high number of A*s at GCSE
