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

Arre 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 :^)

Yes please. One question I have is, what do Keele consider to be he most important factors of an application when applying for medicine? Is it gcses, a levels, personal statement, work experience?

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:
