    Did anyone apply with not-so-perfect GCSE's and still receive an offer for the 6-year Cambridge Medicine course?

    Short answer: not-so-perfect GCSEs can be fine as long as they're decent. With not-so-perfect predicted grades you'd be pushing your luck. Especially if your BMAT isn't that good. From what I've understood Cambridge focuses mostly on A levels and BMAT in pre-interview selection.

    I'm not sure if Cambridge has data in a form that's more easily readable but e.g. here you can see the statistics of people who applied two years ago and whether they got in or not.

    Well, it depends what you mean by not so perfect. My school allowed me to take only 8 o level. Still my 8 A* is below average and I very pessimistic about getting an interview
