    Always wanted to study medicine etc etc. My AS results are
    Just need an outside opinion to help me decide is it better to go straight into medicine (depending on UKCAT and BMAT) or to go for another course such as Biomedical Science and then do postgrad medicine? Also I know some places such as Brighton and Sussex Medical School offer you the chance to transfer after a year of Biomedical Sciences to medicine. Just a little confused, any help will be appreciated

    As long as you get predicted AAA, I wouldn't even consider not applying. AS results aren't that important, and as long as you get the grades at A2, you should be totally fine GEM is so much more competitive and harder, so if you don't want to do that and aren't forced to either, I'd avoid it. Good luck!
