    I got B,A in my science double award. B in Maths, English lang and literature, RE, and C in business, graphics, geography, art.

    now i have started as levels doing chemistry, biology, english lang&lit(combined course) and RE. my aim is to get AABB, most likely drop RE.

    are these grades enough to get a place in top 25 uni in the uk???? if not, what are the best degrees to do so that i can do post-grad medicine. thanks people.

    Oh my goodness me, it's another one.

    Yes AAB will get you into unis (look on www.ucas.ac.uk as to which ones. Maybe be careful about applying to Oxbridge without 3 A's.)

    There is no such thing as a top 25 uni in medicine. They are all the same.

    Best degree to take as a back up will be something like biomedical sciences, biochem, anatomy, physiology, pharmacology, etc.

    You won't even need to. By the looks of things all you need to do is actually read up on it.
    As snail said, there isn't a "top 25" there are barely 25 that do it anyway, and once you're a doctor, you're a doctor, no one will really care where you went.
    Work experience and PS count a lot.

    That.^
    Get some work experience and long term voluntary work and figure out if you actually WANT to be a doctor.
    Read up on it. Do research.

    i think it might help to have better gcses, but do well as AS and you should stand a great chance.

    Maybe, the problem is so many people want to do medicine obviously uni's have got to look at other factors instead of A-Levels to find the suitable candidates

    EDIT: So if you are seriously considering medicine then you need some work experience to talk about when it gets to the ps

    You do realise you've used more punctuation in this post than everyone else in the thread PUT TOGETHER.

    Post-Grad medicine is a risky thing to have as your second choice. You NEED a 2.1 at least or you can't get in. I'd imagine you'd be better off taking a gap year and trying again. Any degree with the words Bio or Chem will suffice. Biology, BioChemistry, Biomedical Sciences, Chemistry etc. etc.

    Anyway, it depends where you apply to, but you should look phone up the admissions tutors at the unis you want to apply for.
