    Hi all,

    Looking through Imperial's website (clicky) for the GEM course, it says they assess the grade and content of previous degrees.

    Does this realistically mean they're going to just decide based on 1st's, 2:1 etc, or do they look more in depth to the grades in individual modules?

    Thanks!

    Maybe they want to see you've done enough physiology-based modules?

    They have the checklist for that, though, don't they? Or is that what they mean?

    Sorry, I'm unsure. I think you should give them a ring to clear things up.

    I rang for you, she said they look at the overall degree grade i.e. 2.1 minimum and they don't look at individual module results.

    With regards to ''checking the content of the previous degree'' she told me to refer to the checklist for the medicine course.

    So they'll be looking at the topics, rather than the grades for each module.

    Hope this helps.
