    I'm currently a Year 12 student and in my GCSEs, I got 6A*s and 4As and an A in Additional Maths (an A is the highest you can get in additional maths).

    A*s were in: Chemistry, Maths, Physics, RE, ICT and English Language
    As were in: Biology, French, Business Studies and English Literature

    Are these grades good enough for Medicine?

    Yes yes yes - the important thing is getting 3 As at A-Level, getting a good UKCAT band and scoring in interviews.

    You have 6A*s, you're fine. As long as you don't muck up your personal statement, have a good referee, and have adequate work experience you'll be okay :^)

    For any university, A Level grades tend to trump everything else.:yep:

    Personal Statement will also be fairly important.:yep:

    I'd say your interview is something quite valuable to them as well.

    I wouldn't worry too much about GCSEs, and try to make sure that you have the relevant work experience.:sadnod:
