If you've already achieved A*A*A you 100% should resit your GCSEs and apply for A100 entry. GEM would be a major waste of time and money for you.

If u got A*A*A a level then your more then capable of getting good gcse scores. Just focus on smashing your these retakes, then apply for medicine... (cross the next bridge if & when, GEM is much more competitive so just sort out the gcse's and go for medicine, you've demonstrated your ability to achieve top grades, dont waste 3 years of time on money to just end up applying for what you can do next year once you sort out gcse's!)

yes for competitive courses they look down on resits, did u resit your a levels or get A*A*A first attempt? because if so, in your application it should be made clear that your academic performance in A-levels is what makes you a strong applicant on the academic side of things...
I would try to not let your yr11 scores dictate your Uni career, as long as your PS and other application info is decent i would think Unis could overlook a couple gcse resits as your a levels are very strong and demonstrate your ability

Yes just meet the minimum requirement GCSE, then apply on the basis of a-levels. You could always email a few Uni admission tutors explaining that for reasons X,Y,Z gcse are **** but im a smart guy my a levels are: A*A*A, would you consider me.

yes, and they wont say we'll take you, theyll probably give u a casual indication of how much they would weight your gcse's but they would also consider BMAT, interview, and the rest of your full ucas application
