    I have just finished my first year at uni and I averaged a 1st (just).

    But 2 of my modules: stats and physiology received poor marks (49 and 58) for different reasons stats I'm just not great at especially when it is examined by solely a final exams and physiology I selectively revised for which didn't work out too great. I don't have to do any more stats or physiology as part of my degree so these are the only modules which will reflect my ability in these subjects.

    But I was just wondering if this is likely to impact on my chances applying for a masters or graduate entry medicine as stats is pretty essential in most masters or research programmes and physiology is obviously a big part of a medicine course.

    Many thanks,

    Grad entry medicine is very competitive. First, make sure you check and meet the entry requirements. Also make sure you have the required work experience. For masters and research programs you should be fine if you meet the entry requirements. There isn't much else you can do at the moment so focus on making your application as strong as possible.
