f.a.galloway@abdn.ac.uk
Entrance Exam: UKCAT
Scottish Highers: AAAAB in five Highers at first sitting in S5. Chemistry required to a minimum of a B, plus two from Biology/Human Biology, Mathematics and Physics, as well as two other subjects. In extreme circumstances, candidates may be able to compensate for poor performance at S5 through appropriate performance in S6, normally only where extenuating circumstances are present however. Candidates who have the Highers requirements are free to study programmes of their choice in S6 bearing in mind that three full academic courses will provide the best objective academic score.
Standard Grade/Int 2: Grade 3 Passes in English and Maths are required. Biology and Physics recommended. Generally, a combination of good Credit passes at Standard Grade expected.
A-levels: AAA in 3 subjects. Chemistry highly desirable plus at least one from Biology, Maths and Physics. There is no preference with regards to the third subject although General Studies is not acceptable.
Resit policy: "No resits considered."
GCSEs: Grade C Passes in English and Maths required. Biology recommended. Physics recommended (or Dual Award Science). Generally, a combination of Grade A & B passes at GCSE expected, especially in science subjects.
IB: 3 HL subjects with a grade 6 or better, preferably including Chemistry. 3 SL subjects with an average of grade 6 - i.e. 36 points overall.

Course Type: Systems-Based, Integrated, with early Clinical learning
Entrance Exam: UKCAT
A-levels: Minimum of 3 subjects. Biology AND Chemistry required. General Studies excluded. Typical Offer will be AAA/A*AB as of 2011.
Resit policy: "BSMS policy is to accept re-taken grades or modules without penalty. BSMS decisions on individual applications will of course be guided by the academic referee's predictions about the grades likely to be achieved after re-taking. Candidates re-taking qualifications who wish to be considered for BSMS entry must declare in their UCAS application the A level grades for which they qualified at their first attempt."
AS Levels: Biology (or Human Biology) and Chemistry required
GCSEs: "We expect grades B in GCSE Maths & English. Re-taken grades or equivalent qualifications are acceptable as evidence of adequate literacy and numeracy. Otherwise while high GCSE grades are obviously encouraging, we shall primarily be considering applicants' most recent qualifications, so modest GCSE grades would be over-ridden by high AS level achievement or high actual or predicted A level grades. BSMS recognises that individuals develop in different ways. We will not penalise applicants who have achieved high A level grades or graduates with good degrees on account of modest GCSE or A level grades obtained in the past."
Scottish Highers: Either 3 Advanced Highers OR a combination of 2 Advanced Highers plus 2 further Highers accepted. Offer must include Biology and Chemistry at Higher level, with at least one at Advanced Higher.
IB: A total of 37 points with 17 points at three HL. Biology and Chemistry should be at least at SL and one at HL. If both are on SL, you need at least 5 points from it.
Base Hospital: Brighton and Sussex University Hospitals NHS Trust
Further Information: Graduate applicants holding, or expecting, a first or upper second class degree with a demonstrable knowledge of Biology and Chemistry (either through degree content or A/AS levels). However due to the integrated nature of the course BSMS currently do not offer an accelerated graduate-entry programme. Students do full body cadaveric dissection from Year 1.
