    I want to apply for medicine this year (I’m in year 12) but I achieved a 5 in maths and 6 in English Lang/Lit at GCSE.
    Would I reach the requirements for top unis in London like Kings, Queens Mary, Imperial etc....

    I'm afraid your 5 in Maths will most likely be a problem as a 6 is generally required

    Have a look on here: https://www.medschools.ac.uk/media/2...al-schools.pdf

    It's using the old system, but I'd assume that any currently requiring a B will require a 6 next year

    Most uni's require a 6 minimum. I'd recommend a retake.

    bear in mind medicine is ridiculously competitive and successful applicants for top unis for medicine usually have all A*/A at gcse as well as a level
