I'm just wondering what Gcse grades and what A-levels I would need to study gene therapy. Which UK universitys have a course in gene therapy?

Try to aim for mostly 7s and 8s (8-9 definitely in sciences and maths) maybe one 6 . Pass maths and English both with 6s. A levels I would say Bio, Chem and Maths, in case you change your mind later on but still wanna study genetics, all of these grades are sure to give you a good chance

Truth be told, above average grades will suffice for the majority of UK universities. So, you're looking at GCSE 6/7s and ABB - AAA+ at A-level.

For the more 'respected' universities, you're definitely looking at AAB+ (AAA+ even for oxbridge, St. Andrews etc) at A-level. No-one really cares about your GCSEs apart from oxbridge / medicine courses as long as you get a 6/7 in sciences/maths/English.

For my science Gcses I'm predicted As but for maths a B because I'm not doing higher, so if I'm not doing higher maths would that effect my ability to do it for A level?

I believe so, yes.

However, most biology based degrees don't require maths A-level.
