    Hi guys,

    I want to study medicine, and have an upper second class honours degree in Psychology with Criminology. However, I don't seem to fit the entry requirements for the 5 year course as they want A-levels In chemistry, biology etc however I only have a BTEC National Diploma in Forensic Science.

    I was going to apply to a Graduate entry medicine course, however the majority of them also want A-levels, not BTEC. Also I only scored an average of 620 on my UKCAT which I think rules me out for a lot of universities.

    I was THEN considering maybe applying onto a 6 year course with a foundation year, because of my lack of A-levels in the subjects wanted, however now I'm looking and most of them wont accept graduates!

    I feel genuinely stuck and I'm not sure how on earth to get onto a Medical programme!

    Has anyone got any suggestions? About where to apply, or where I might stand a chance of getting in?

    Any help would be greatly appreciated
