    Hello everyone!

    I just need a bit of advice.

    I am currently in year 11 and studying my GCSE’S. I am hoping to go to Oxford or Cambridge and study medicine because I would like to become a doctor, but I don’t feel like I’m “good enough” for them.

    My GCSE predicted results are:
    Maths A*
    English Language A
    English literature A
    Biology A
    Chemistry A
    Physics A
    Spanish C
    Art A
    Graphic products B
    Hospitality A

    I know they aren’t the best results, but I’m trying to do so much revision and get even better grades.

    At A level I am hoping to study Maths, Chemistry, Biology and Psychology.

    Do you think I should look at other universities, or try and stick to Oxbridge? Thank you.

    You have plenty of time to improve your grades between now and the exams. Try and revise as hard as possible for the mocks and learn from your mistakes! Best of luck

    You can apply to 4 places so regardless of grades also look at 3 more plus 1 for (probably) biomedicine!
    My advice would be to try and get A*s in the sciences, particularly biology and chemistry.

    Honestly, if you're doing medicine you should be happy if you get any offer literally. Oxbridge means nothing to medicine.
