Due to some unfortunate circumstances, I haven’t done very well in my mocks and I was hoping to apply to medicine, Do you absolutely need to have 3As as your mock grades to even be considered?
Thanks for any help, I’m a bit worried ☹️

You need to have better or equal predicted grades than the standard offer, or you will be automatically rejected.

You could have UUU in your mocks, but if your school is happy to predict A*A*A* you'll be alright.

As usual, the list of standard offers are here - https://www.medschools.ac.uk/media/2...al-schools.pdf

So wait, your mock grades aren’t necessarily your predicted grades then? I really hope this is the case because I’ve done well throughout the year it’s just for the past 2 weeks I’ve been super ill so I got lower than expected grades. Will your school take into account everything you’ve done over the year as well?

It depends on your school.

This also depends on your school!

*Disclaimer: I studied at a time when we did official AS levels, which did count. So on our UCAS form we had to enter our AS scores and grades - it was much more foolproof. Obviously we had predicted grades too.

I believe (I am not a teacher at a school) that your predicted grades are simply supplied by the school, hence it can be as high or low as they state. Your school may be very strict, or very lenient - I wouldn't know.
