I want to do medicine at Uni and I’m currently in year 11. I’d like to stay at home so is Manchester a good option? And what grades would I need both gcse and alevels? Thanks

I don't know much about medicine, but I have heard that it is quite good. sadly I can't tell you the grades but if you look the course up on www.ucas.com you should be able to find all the info you need there

Take a look at the Manchester medicine website for entry requirements.

http://www.manchester.ac.uk/study/un...bchb-medicine/

In terms of being selected for interview I think it's top 3 deciles in the UKCAT. I can't remember how they weigh GCSEs but be aware that they do look at personal statements so it is slightly subjective.

All UK medical schools are regulated to ensure they meet the very high standards set by the General Medical Council.

You can find entry requirements for Manchester (and other medical schools) here:

https://www.bmh.manchester.ac.uk/stu...course-profile

https://www.medschools.ac.uk/media/2...al-schools.pdf

It's important to bear in mind that different medical schools have different admissions policies and selection procedures, so you need to apply to the medical schools which you're most likely to get into i.e. you can't get too bogged down by geographical preferences if you want to maximise your chances of getting an offer.

Also, even if you do get into Manchester they can send you to places quite far away for significant periods of time (one friend had a year in Preston) so living at home may still not be practical.
