    I've been in a really difficult position lately on deciding what I want to do in the future. I've always wanted to do medicine however I feel as though my gcse results are not high enough. Despite this though I was wondering if I smash my AS mocks and get AAA and get my teachers predict me AAA will my gcse results matter.
    I am doing biology chemistry and History .
    For my gcse results I got:
    Maths-4(C)
    English language-6(B)
    English literature-7(A)
    Additonal science-B
    Core science-B
    French-A
    Religious studies-A*
    Geography-C
    Drama-D

    I think your biggest problem will be Maths, a lot of places require at least a B in Maths GCSE. If you can resit Maths this year, that would strengthen your application.
    Yes - you'd need to make sure you're predicted AAA, get some good work experience and volunteering, build a strong personal statement, and apply to med schools that don't care as much about GCSE's. (I applied many years ago so I don't have this information to hand, but it will be on TSR).

    As above. Use the link below to compare the requirements of different medical schools, but you will probably need to retake Maths.
