I'm not too familiar with the foundation year at Leeds but for the A100 your GCSEs are scored with 3 points for an A* (9s/8s), 2 Points for an A (7) and 1 Point for a B (6). Your best bet would be to either ask Leeds University or create a FOI request to see what scores you need for the foundation year to be called for an interview.

Firstly well done on your GCSE grades, yes you will be fine to apply to most med schools as long as you avoid GCSE heavy med schools like Leeds, Oxford and Cardiff.

Once you get your A Level predictions/results and a UCAT/BMAT score please post on the "Which Medical School Should I Apply To?" Thread and we will be able to best advise on where to apply.

My gcse are not the highest I got
666665

6 in maths and English language and two 6s in science btw.

Should I stick to foundation year as I can get in with lower grades… or will it still be too competitive. (Ps. I can apply to foundation year as both my parents don’t have a degree)

You will have to check each university that you want to apply to and will need to meet more than just one point of their entry criteria because, as I'm sure you know, foundation years aren't open to everyone and you will need to meet a specific criteria for each uni to be considered.

There's a thread for questions like yours: https://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/sho....php?t=5678544

And yes, you'll just need to avoid the "GCSE-heavy" med schools.

Once you have your UCAT score, post to https://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/sho....php?t=7102578 and we will advise you where to apply for your best chances.

I’m in year 12 ATM, I am taking biology,chemistry and psychology. Right now I am getting pretty good grades. I really want to apply to medicine, however my Gcse are not the best (666665). I did however get a 6 in English language and maths at GCSE.

Could I get some advice on where to apply? Also what work experience should I do? Thank you.

This is the fifth time you asked this question. It's against TSR rules to make duplicate threads. Any problems with the answers above?

Or maybe you could post in the thread for your year group as recommended in the post above yours.

In terms of work experience, read and then post in https://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/sho....php?t=6929328
