    Hi,
    I know there are quite a few similar posts but none have similar grades to mine, so I though I’d ask. I don’t plan on applying to GCSE heavy unis, but more relaxed ones like Queen Mary, Belfast or HYMS
    My GCSEs are:
    Eng Lit - 8
    Eng Lang - 8
    Biology - A
    Chemistry - A*
    Physics - B
    Maths - B
    History - A
    Geography - B
    German - C
    RE - A

    Thanks!

    Yes, make sure you apply logically.

    They’re good but some unis allocate points to your grades and use this to shortlist applicants.

    Some want your best 8, others, like Birmingham ask for your 3 sciences, maths, English language, English Lit and 2 others. As Kyber Ninja said, apply logically - so to unis which don’t look at GCSEs like Imperial, Kings (to an extent) QMUL..

    I’m not sure if that was sarcastic or not...

    Yes those GCSEs are perfectly okay for medicine. As long as you avoid unis which are REALLY GCSE heavy you're fine.
