    I'm in year 11 and today i received my first predicted grades, our school sends them monthly. I know that i'm predicted more than a 'c'/'5' and that is what matters most, but for me, considering i want to take the medicine route [alevels= chemistry,biology,maths,geograph y] , and the sixth forms i want to go to are competitive: how are they?
    English Literature : 8
    English Language : 7
    Geography: 6
    History : 8
    RE: 6
    Spanish : 6
    Chemistry : 8
    Physics: 8
    Biology : 8
    Maths: 8
    They are ok, i know that, but ideally how are they:
    Also i want to apply to sixthforms like Latymer ( i know i need to do an entry exam but predicted grades are important) and Henrietta Barnett, Holland Park, Woodhouse...
    Thank you

    There is no harm applying. Good grammar schools tend to be composed of students with ability between 8A's(7s) and 8A*s(8/9). I go to one in Southend that needs 4 As (7s) and 4 Bs (6). However you may want to reconsider Geography as a 6 is weak. Most will have 7-9s in the subjects they are taking for A level, but your others seem strong and will not hinder your chances in Medicine- do try and push for 9s in the sciences and maths during the actual thing however, then all universities will be open to you.
