Are these GCSEs good enough for Medicine at a London UniversityWatch
Would these GCSEs hold me back as I know it's very competitive and I got a lot of 6s.
I understand a lot of the application is dependent on UCAT/BMAT, PS, experience, and A lvl predicts. However, would these GCSEs hold back my application in any way?
Well, I got 887776544 in my GCSEs, and got A*AAB (Physics, biology, chemistry and maths) in my A levels and I got into KCL medicine. Don’t worry about your grades, I was worried about my 4s, never mind your 6s! A levels are more important.
This year there have been a lot of changes in how some unis decide who they’re going to invite for interview due to the recent issues with exams - unis that previously scored GCSEs and weighted them heavily are now taking less notice. This might change for next year - who knows? I think KCL used to score gcses but I’m not sure for this year. Imperial don’t really worry about gcses as long as you have AAA predicted for A levels it then is pretty much down to your BMAT. I’m not sure about the other London unis - but you have plenty of options. Plus KMMS is fairly close by and worth a look.
