    So my gcse grades are quite poor for medical school: 2 A* (Biology, Rs) 5 As (English lit and lang, chemistry, history and maths) and 3 Bs (Music, physics and spanish).

    I am trying very hard to get high A-level grades and a high UKCAT/BMAT score (speaking of the academics).

    Which unis don't focus much on GCSE grades? Which prefer A-levels, UKCAT/BMAT, personal statement, experience?
    And if anyone likes, I'd be more than happy to hear of stories about getting into med school with non-competative GCSE grades for a boost of hope.

    my advice is to avoid schools which use your gcses in a points based system

    Avoid places like Oxford, Cardiff and Birmingham which primarily look at GCSEs when selecting applicants for interview. You still have plenty of options though so just work hard during your A-levels
