I know you guys probably hate these sort of threads so I’m sorry for that 😅 but I just wanted some reassurance on where these GCSE grades would get someone who is looking to do Medicine at Uni, especially UCL.

9 8 8 8 8 7 7 6 6 5

I know obviously my BMAT/UCAT and A-Level scores will matter the most but I feel as if most people who get in to do medicine at somewhere like UCL have exceptional GCSEs which I don’t think I could match, and I know GCSEs could be what separates two candidates

Thanks a lot!

UCL is very holistic in their approach. They take PS, Tutor References, BMAT, A levels predicted, work exp/volunteering and many other things.

Your GCSEs are fine, I’d just check that the 5 is not in Maths/English, I think there is a requirement of grade 6 in those two subjects (if I remember correctly). Otherwise don’t worry, you will be fine!

Thanks a lot! The 5 is in Computer Science actually, I got an 8 in Maths and a 6 in English so I think I should be okay on that front!
