Hi I have recently qualified from uni with a 2:2 in adult nursing and have been working as a nurse for nearly 2 months. I have always wanted to be a doctor and still do even more so working in the hospital around doctors. I have researched postgrad medicine and most unis require the GAMSAT and a 2:1 at uni would i still be able to get in with a 2:2 in nursing? Thanks

I applied with a 2.2 and it was incredibly difficult. I think only Notts may accept 2.2 on its own now (but it would be worth checking as I've not looked in a few years). I ended up doing a Masters to help open additional options up for me (like Swansea and Warwick), which is what I would recommend if your heart is set on medicine.

Hi emma1468,

Speaking for ourselves, you could look to do our Graduate Entry Medicine course with a 2:2 if you completed a postgraduate qualification first. Our entry requirements are as follows:


  • either an upper second (2:1) or first class degree in any discipline
  • or a merit or distinction (equivalent to 2:1 or first) in an integrated undergraduate Master's degree
  • or a lower second (2:2) PLUS a Postgraduate Master's or PhD
  • GCSE Mathematics and English at grade C or above
  • GAMSAT with a minimum overall score of 50, together with a minimum of 50 in Paper III (Reasoning in Biological and Physical Sciences)


In addition, while it's not what you're asking about have you looked into a Physician Associate Studies course? Depending on the aspects of a doctor's role that interest you the most, it may potentially be an avenue of interest for you.
