I’m just about to begin Year 12 and for my A-Levels I’m hoping to do Maths, Biology, Chemistry and either German or Politics (depends on how the timetables turn out). My dream is to study medicine and I received my GCSE results on Thursday. Regardless of the other factors such as work experience, are my GCSE results good enough to study at a university like Queen’s Belfast, Imperial or Kings? I am worrying because my careers teacher said we can only study medicine with 9 A*

My results: (equivalent 7 A* and 3 A)
German: 9
Maths: A*
Further Maths: A*
English Language: A*
Biology: A*
Chemistry: A*
Physics: A*
Latin: 7

Yes

I wouldn't get too fixated on what uni you study medicine at. All UK Medical degrees are accredited by the GMC and are very well respected

Queen’s only look at gcse grades if they’re deciding between applicants with the same qualifications at As level and are unsure of who to pick. But I don’t think you really need to worry with grades like that

Just as one example for Queen's Belfast. The cut off for interview last year was 34 points. You score 34 points just on your GCSE grades, even without UKCAT.

GCSE scoring on 9 subjects, with 4 points for A* (8/9) and 3 points for A (or 7 grade), no points awarded for lower grades. UKCAT attracts between 0-6 points, according to banding eg: 600 = 3 points; 650 = 4 points
