Is 97% enough for a foreigner?

Hello. I am new to the site. I used to be an outstanding student who scored 98.7%-99.8% each year, won in many different competitions including taking first place for the solo piano competition 4 times in a row. Come high school however, and everything turned for the worse. I dropped to 97% now and I am terrified and emotionally devastated. I swear I am not appealing for compliments. I have been told by way too many sources that unless I get above 99% I might as well just abandon all hope of being accepted into a medical college. And to add insult to injury, I have a twin brother who must also get his tuition paid and we are not even rich at all.
What should I do? I feel so depressed right now. I dont want to study in my country because it's a hell hole at the moment. I can't even start to believe that a college in Russia will accept me..
Please help me guys, im so confused and sad I can't think straight..

    What grade are you in right now? It's not too late to turn things around and that being said, 97% is still a fantastic average. Make sure you take AP courses or A levels, or that sort of equivalent for your country in order to have a competitive entry for any university abroad. It would be good to be involved in clubs and any possible internships as well, along with lots and lots of volunteer hours! I'm also hoping to get into medicine and I wish my average was as good as yours! Keep it up and good luck!
