Medicine is seriously competitive and it goes without saying that you need the highest of grades. It is a given that you need to aim for the top grades. GCSE are also important. You need to show academic ability and consistency throughout. Below is from :m
Some of the top academic universities (often belonging to the Russell group) will ask for very high A Level grades – AAB or higher – for most courses.
Because of the assumed connection between your GCSE and A Level results, it’ll be down to you to prove you’re able to achieve top grades. Bs and Cs at GCSE are suggestive of Cs and Ds at A Level – which won’t be enough to get into some universities.
The more competitive the university and course, the higher the number of high-achieving students with top GCSE marks applying. Some courses actively state this in the prospectus – the Department of Law at the London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE) says: ‘Most have already achieved excellent GCSE grades including the majority at A* and A’.’
