Hi my name is Hannah and I wanted to know, do I realistically have a chance of getting into medical school despite my GCSE grades?
For secondary school, I attended a prestigious private school in the West Midlands and attained the following grades for my GCSEs:
Maths – A
English Language – A
English Literature – A
Biology – A
Chemistry – B
Physics – B
French – A*
History – B
Business – A
Latin – A
These were rather disappointing as I was predicted 3 A*S and 7 As, but that didn’t change my lifelong dream of becoming a doctor to work for the charity Medicines Sans Frontieres.
I have left the private school and now attend a grammar school where I am studying Maths, Biology, Chemistry and Law.
So do I have a chance of getting into medical school, and if so, what A levels grades should I be aiming on achieving in order to get in?
