Because they take gcse grades into high consideration. thank you in advance.

Honestly, Birmingham would expect at least 5 A*s at GCSE (more if non contextual). Most applicants have 7+ 8/9 grades. You would be able to get into university to study medicine but Birmingham would not be the best option with your grades so far
If medicine is what you really want don’t get too hung up over where you want to study, it’s really competitive and you can apply locally but most people don’t get a huge amount of choice into which exact uni they want to go to
