I just got my GCSE results and I'm unsure whether I'll be able to take medicine at Uni. I got 2 Grade 9s, 1 Grade 8, 2 Grade 7s, 2 Grade 6s, a Grade 5 and a Grade 4 (Spanish). I got a Grade 5 in English Language so I plan on resitting in november but I'm unsure how that will affect my Uni application.I would also appreciate any advice on what parts of my uni application i should focus on for medicine as i go into college. Any advice given would be much appreciated

It's an OK set of results, but you would really have to have a strong application/ set of predicted grades at A-level to really shine through.
ecolier may also have some additional wisdom to share

(1) You should have posted to https://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/sho....php?t=5678544 which is where other GCSE students have posted asking if their grades are good enough for Medicine.

(2) You need more stats before you can ask about your chances - BMAT (for Oxbridge and UCL) and UCAT (for most other med schools). Obviously you'd take them next year, so you wouldn't know it now.

You don't need us to "reassure" you that your grades are OK, read https://www.medschools.ac.uk/media/2...al-schools.pdf for all the official med school entry requirements.
