    OK, so I have decided graduate entry must be too difficult to apply for even though I technically meet the criteria (I have the feeling most successful applicants will be extremely over-qualified relative to the minimum criteria).

    What undergraduate medical courses accept a high percentage of graduates relative to the number of school leavers?

    I don't want to feel like an 24-year-old pensioner among 18 year old school leavers if I can help it...

    So far Hull York's undergraduate course, is comprised of 67% school-leavers, 33% graduates, Barts may also be promising - is there anywhere else like that?

    Queens Belfast takes 40% of graduates. My friend got in and she said most of the people who she has spoken to that have got into the course are graduates.

    I didn't meet the Newcastle criteria fully (having not been in education for 7 years)...

    ...Still managed to get an offer.

    Don't write off the grad entry route as you perceive it as being too difficult. It's competitive, yes, but if you put the work and effort into getting experience, honing your PS and manage to get a cracking UKCAT/GAMSAT mark then go for it.

    Plus the grad course is far less of a financial black hole!

    EDIT:

    Also, there's nothing stopping you from applying for BOTH 4 year and 5 year courses if you want to try hedge your bets.
