    you dont need 10A*s to do medicine, more like 5A's is more than enough for most places.

    GCSE's: 4A*s 5As 2Bs
    AS's: 4Bs 1C (not that good for medicine huh!)
    A2 predictions: AAB (most likely to be ABB though)

    Applied to for medicine:Peninsula, Brighton sussex, Cardiff and Southampton.

    So far only got confirmation letters from Cardiff and Southampton. No interviews, no offers, no real news.

    Applied to for Psychology: Plymouth and Leicester

    Got an offer from Leicester which is BBB. Just as a backup, incase I don't get my grades in medicine, or if I dont get any offers. I don't wanna wait around for a year and try again. I want to get to University and be a uni student! It looks fun!

    Good luck to you all guys. It's nerve racking aint it! Every day the post comes, i'm down those stairs like a friggin rocket...but theres never anyting for me. boohoo!

    I applied to GKT, Barts, Imperial and Leeds
    GCSEs: 9A*s, 2A's
    AS: 4 A's , 1B
    A2 predicted 4A's (i think)

    I havent heard a thing! Ive just had confirmation letters from Barts and Leeds- other than that, nada.
    Getting more and more anxious everyday!
    In some instuitutions gcse grades count, but as long as uve met the entry requirements- they'll have no excuse to bin ur ucas due to gcse grades! They only put em in so that they can weed down the thousands of applicants to a few hundred that they can interview!
