In short, no.

Honestly, to me it seems that GCSE's are not important to somebody who wants to go to University, unless applying to top 10/20 institutions.

GCSEs provide the basic grounding in a subject, providing you with the knowledge and understanding needed to take it further.

Therefore, yes, you need to do well as GCSE in order to do well at A-Level, in order to go on to study medicine.

So, besically, you will not be denied a place for studying Medicine at university (and ultimately becoming a doctor) because of your GCSE grades. But you have to understand that to do well at GCSE will be advantageous in preparing you for further study - so get the best you can possibly achieve! =)

Thankyou. I will do my best in my GCSE's. Do you want to be a doctor too? Because you seem very familiar to this topic :p

No! But I want to study a biological subject, namely Ecology! And, being in Year 12, I've done a LOT of research into entry requirements etc. 

Best of luck with the GCSE's! ^_^
