Low Gcses for Gateway to Medicine

Hello,

Due to me being homeschooled because of family problems, my gcse score was really low, that is 665553. (3 - psychology)
I am now attending a state school and I take Chemistry, Biology and physics a levels. I want to go into the medical field and chose to opt for the gateway to medicine courses.
I have been predicted ABB and my UCAT score according to the past papers were 2800.
Do I have a chance of securing a place?
I don’t know much about applying for medicine but your GCSE’s really aren’t so bad, I got 65555442, two of my friends are both going into medicine, one got 7’s 8’s and 9’s, the other got more 7’s 6’s and 5’s (and one 3, same subject as my 2, it’s was something to do with exam board dropping our coursework marks severely), if you don’t think your grades will improve, have a look at medicine with foundation (I just looked on ucas and saw Manchester, Nottingham and keele)
Hey there! It's great that you're aiming for a gateway to medicine course despite the challenges with your GCSEs. With ABB predictions for your A-levels and a strong UCAT score like 2800, you definitely have a shot. Gateway courses are designed to help students who’ve faced educational or personal challenges, so your background and improvement at A-levels might actually support your application. Make sure to explain your situation clearly in your personal statement and show your commitment and passion for medicine. Keep working hard, and good luck! You’ve got a real chance here.
