definitely, you just have to apply strategically at unis that do not weight GCSE's as much and place more emphasis on the UCAT/BMAT and predicted grades or interview

Yes. My friend had A*AAAABBBBC and is doing medicine currently. As mentioned above, you need to apply strategically.

You can have a look at how med schools used GCSE grades last year here: https://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/res...e-requirements
There are quite a few med schools that do not require all 8/9s.

Honestly these are fine, just avoid GCSE heavy med schools like Leeds, Oxford, Liverpool and Cardiff. There are others but these are the ones I can remember from the top of my head.
