I've completed my GCSEs last year, I achieved 2 A*s, 1 A in Biology, chemistry and Physics. I achieved 9 in Maths, 6 in English Language, B in Business Studies, C in History. Ive been told by my career advisor that I can still get into medicine if I choose universities that have low GCSEs weighting, I've done research on Medic Portal and listed the following universities that I could possibly get into:
Brighton & Sussex
Im currently studying A levels Biology, Chemistry and Law. Does anyone have any disagreements regarding the choices of universities that I'm going to apply for this year:

Hi - sorry you haven't had a response to this yet. I'm just going to bump the thread in the hope that someone sees this and can help

When you apply for medicine you have to take another test as well as GCSEs and A levels. Some unis want the UKCAT and others the BMAT. How well you do in these really affects your chances of getting an interview. Some Unis only look at these when deciding for interview, so if you do well in them GCSEs don't matter as much. I would add Sheffield, Plymouth and St Georges to your list to look at as well.
One problem is that Unis sometimes change how they select from one year to the next, so you will have to check what they say nearer the time.
There is another thread that you may find helpful. I'll try and find the link for you.
