Hi, as GCSE's are coming to an end I was wondering if I would still be able to get accepted into medical school in the future if I do not obtain all A's at GCSE

I think as long as you do well in A Levels and get 5 passes inc. Maths and English at GCSE level you're good. Unless you want to go to a prestigious uni, that's a different story.

There are no more "prestigious" uni compared to another uni for Medicine.

It's not an "I think" when you come to medical admissions - a lot of med school specify the number of A*s / As required.
