    Hi,

    I managed to get predicted A*A*A* for A levels.
    This is a huge turnaround from GCSE where I got Bs and a C in english lang.

    Should I still apply for unis which require B min a GCSe lang?

    If you do, you risk being automatically rejected. Your best bet would be to contact unis directly to explain your situation and ask how they would view your application.

    Medical schools can afford to reject anyone who doesn't meet the minimum requirements because there is so much competition. There is no reason for them to favour certain applicants.
