    I am a year 12 student in Delhi under the CBSE board. I wish to apply to study medicine in the UK starting 2017, I am expecting a score of 90% above in my final exams. My current subjects are: Maths,Physics,Chemistry,English and Computer Science. I do not have Biology as a subject in my last two years. Does that disqualify me as a candidate? If not, then which universities would consider my application?

    I presume that many universities would consider you since you have chemistry and two other science subjects. It takes time, but I'm afraid you just have to go through the international entry requirements for universities on their websites.

    Hi, it most certainly doesn't disqualify you. There are universities that take candidates who don't study biology - because you're doing CBSE I'm not quite sure how it works, you will have to check university's websites or phone them up as the person above said. I would try the universities that are lower down in the league tables as they are less likely to be strict with their subject requirements.
    I'm a British Indian applicant to medicine btw, so if you have any questions about differences between England and India and applying feel free to drop me a message
