I am really interested in studying medicine but for GCSEs I got seven grades 8-9, two grade 7 and one grade 5 (which was English language ). I know universities look at work experience and personal statements as well as GCSE grades but I am just worried that my grade in English language will limit my opportunities.

I re-sat my GCSE English language at the start of November and I have to wait until January to get the results but I am unsure on whether my grade will improve.

Providing I get the required a-level grades do you think my 5 in GCSE English language (I got a 7 in lit but I don't think universities look at this) will matter and if my grade does improve in the resit results will universities accept this?

There are quite a few medical schools which requires more than 5 in GCSE English Language, so if you have a Grade 5 you'll need to consider resitting it again, or applying to ones that don't have such a requirement.

Here is a list of the entry requirements of all UK medical schools: https://www.medschools.ac.uk/media/2...al-schools.pdf
