    i'v been looking at different universities offering medicine and was wondering why do some put so much emphasise on gcse grades like "7 A's or B's" and others just say "C or above in eng, maths and science" whats the difference between these uni's?

    Only that some Uni's take GCSE's ito account more than others. For most courses at most Uni's (not just medicine) they will require a C or above in Science, maths and English, but I shouldn't worry about ones that say 7 A's and B's, they shouldn't discriminate you on your GCSE results, because really, its A-Levels and your personality and ability that counts.

    Its usually Unis that have a veru high number of applicants for an already highly applied course. GCSE results is a way to wittle down the numbers to interview, moreover they show consistency in grades and how likely u are going to achieve ur predicted grades- which for med is AAA/AAB/ABB, depending on where u apply.
    The don't call em entry requirements for nothing, if u don't have the gcse results then they have to be harsh and say No Thanks.
