    If you look at the applicants profiles then you can see some profiles of some people who have got into London medical schools:

    applicants profiles 1

    applicant profiles 2

    I realise of course this doesn't say whether most applicants to London medical schools have straight A*/A but it shows you some of the TSR applicants that got in.

    It's much harder than that, medicine is the most competitive course and pretty much everyone applying will meet the requirements so you have to make your application stand out with lots of A*s/As at GCSE, great personal statement, great work experience, great interview...etc

    But everyone will have that... Surely it's good to stand out with better grades? (As well as good PS, interview etc)

    if they dont award extra marks for extra A*/A cses, you dont need them - its as simple as that.

    anything else you feel is your imagination, and applying to an imaginary medical school isnt anyone's style.

    and no, the competition isnt anything like that. in fact the competition is largely made up of peeple of poor reasoning ability who cant read websites - i dont mean that personally, its a true fact.
