It depends if you’ll be classed as contextual anywhere.
There are also gateway/foundation years that often require lower grades but you would have to meet the widening participation points.

Have a look at this: https://www.themedicportal.com/appli...edical-school/

depends on whether they're predicted or not. You'll need minimum AAB ( or ABB if you can foot Buckingham's incredible bill ) achieved, but you can apply to a few places that don't look at predicted grades with CCC if you wanted. Also, as slothz has said, W.P

Minimum grades in what
All med schools score GSCEs, A levels, interview performance and UCAT/BMAT differently. As a bare minimum, AAA in Bio, Chem and a third subject, and 6s in Maths, English and science GCSEs are key for a generally decent range of options but better grades open more doors and worse grades don’t necessarily mean you can never do medicine.

Just to add:
Kent and medway makes AAB offers, Buckingham ABB ( but they're crazy expensive ), and some schools will take A*AB if your A-levels are uneven. Some medical schools will take any A-levels, Cardiff has an adjustment course with an extra year, and one medical school takes any anyway ( is it Newcastle? not sure? ). If you have any W.P flags, all this changes.

Yep I know - the idea was just to provide a general overview as people are still pretty limited without those basics, and we’d usually advise resits to get to that level even if it’s not always necessary.
