    I'm currently doing my A-Levels and i was planning on applying to a medical university.
    If i do 4yrs of Biomed will i get my years shortened while doing Medicine?
    Or will i need to do (4yrs biomed + 5yrs med) ?
    Help !

    If you are talking about in the UK the answer is kind of. A normal biomed degree is 3 years after which you can apply for graduate entry medicine course which is 4 years. However, student finance will not pay for the second degree so you would need to und a way of financing it yourself so it may be a better idea to go straight into medicine if you know that you definitely want to do it
