    I know theres a similar thread out there but im kinda worried if I will be able to even get into a medical university with my grades. And I havnt taken my A Levels yet and I know thats what Unis predominantly look at but I want a rough view of what I can realistically aim for. I have been told my grades are good but seeing who Unis choose are those with either all A* or mostly A*/A grades.. And in Advance thank you, cause this will mean that I can realistically think about how and what I do. For AS I plan to take Economics,Biology,Chemistry and Maths and plan to keep the same four to the second year.
    My GCSE results are:
    Science: A
    Additional Science: A*
    English Language: B
    English lit: A
    Business Studies: B
    Maths: A
    Geography: A
    Religous Studies: A
    ICT: C
    German: D

    ****s sake, yeah they're fine. GCSEs aren't that important anyway.

    There's no such thing as a 'bad' medical school. All medical schools are accredited by the GMC. Oddly enough, I was about to annoy all the med students and start the same type of thread... *walks away whistling*

    I'm moving this to the applications forum, but you really should focus on your AS levels and see where you stand this time next year. While GCSEs help you get into university, they are by no means the be all or end all; focus more on getting good grades next year.

    Don't worry, we all know what you meant. I was being pedantic.

    I echo Suuuseh. You could have got all A*s this year but if u get DDDD at AS you won't be getting into 'good' unis. Your GCSEs are good so focus on getting the best you can at AS and then think about where you can aim.
