Hi there
I had a related question and would be grateful for any advice.
Most, if not all, Unis ask for Eng Lang minimum grade 6. Does this mean, any grade above 6 is sufficient for them to tick the GCSE box (unless ofcourse they are scoring GCSEs) or will they rate the applicant based on Eng Lang grade specifically (It doesn't say anywhere that they would rate it in this way but I am wondering if they do, just like they may rate the application based on A levels, even if their minimum requirement might be AAA)
Thanks

assuming english is your first language. You will have to meet all the minimum requirements however most applicants for medicine have 8s and 9s in all their gcses. hope this helps

As long as you have a 6 you should be good but do avoid GCSE heavy med schools (those that rank or score GCSEs) such as Oxford, Cardiff or Leeds.

When a university says it only requires a 6 in English Language they are not trying to trick you as they have to be super transparent when it comes to the selection criteria.
