    I hold a first class honours Biomedical science degree from the UK. I would like some information about which medicine programme will consider me. This is becouse I do not hold the best secondary school results such as GCSE and A-levels. However, I worked very hard at university to get my degree and I would hate for this to get in the way for me to study medicine in the future.

    Thank you

    Hi. Generally speaking, A-Level and GCSE grades are not considered in GEM degrees in the UK, so they could be an option for you. You'd have to visit individual university websites / call around to the admissions departments and ask for their entry requirements to find out which universities would suit your particular academic situation. Alternatively, there are three Irish universities that offer GEM degrees - University College Dublin, University College Cork, University Limerick.Their entry requirements are a 2.i Hons degree and getting a sufficient grade in the GAMSAT exam. They could be an option for you, however having just voted for a Brexit in the UK, i'd say there would be some uncertainty around what the fees would be for British citizens and they could potentially become a very expensive option soon.
