Do universities actually take AS grades into account? most I've spoken to have said they don't even look at them but I've sat my AS exam for geography and don't think I've done too well on it. How much of an impact will this have realistically on my application for medicine?

They say that, but if it was a **** grade then it would raise my eyebrow.

Maybe, I do not know. Just have to apply and see what happens.

Hi, I work in admissions. For my Uni, we barely look at AS results at all. But other Uni's may use any combination of your AS results and predictions to decide whether to give you an offer. So it's up to the individual Uni and it could make some difference, but it's never going the only thing they consider, so you are probably overthinking it

Hey,

I was just wondering as well what A-Levels you're studying? Typically for Medicine, Georgraphy wouldn't be seen as a necessity so perhaps your other subjects which may be more medicine related(?), would carry more weight anyway?
