    That's a very open-ended question. It would help to know a bit more about what you specifically want to know.

    I assume you are asking about application to UK medical schools.

    As an undergraduate, you will need to meet minimum grade requirements for GCSEs and A-levels, which generally means AAA at least at A-level, including chemistry. Obviously there are plenty of equivalent qualifications like IB that are also accepted. As a graduate, you'd be expected to have a minimum 2:1 in your undergraduate degree.

    Then there are several different admissions tests such as BMAT, UKCAT, GAMSAT, different unis require different ones. Personal statement, work experience, extracurricular to show you're a rounded person.

    All medical schools in the UK are good, and all will give you a good undergraduate medical education. The differences between the schools will generally be in teaching styles.

    Fees for 'home' students are around £9,000/year. Fees for 5th and any subsequent years are paid by NHS for home students. Fees are considerably more for international students, with clinical years being much more expensive than preclinical years.
