The answer to your question is… depends on the medical schools’s selection process
Each medical school has a different selection process, with focus on different parts of your application
For example:
You have your personal statement, gcse grades, A Level predicted grades, Entrance exam score (UCAT) + band…
For example
https://www.exeter.ac.uk/study/undergraduate/courses/medicine/medicine/#entry-requirements
State gcse english language 4… so it is easy to imagine that they are not too focused on your gcse grades
But other medical schools, such as Nottingham are.
https://www.nottingham.ac.uk/medicine/study-with-us/undergraduate/undergraduate-medicine/undergraduate-selection-process.aspx
Want english language 6 minimum so you cannot apply for Nottingham
As your gcse’s are scored out of 32 points
UCAT for 60 points
UCAT band for 60 points

GCSE scores
Grade Points
9 or A* 4
8 3
7 or A 2
6 or B 1
