    well i am already on a gap year (i took one after my second year because i wanted to go abroad for a few months --- things workd out badly and I had to come back to good old England). So I don't want to take another yar out. I am free now till next September when I will be going back to uni =.
    The why ask the question?

    You've already answered your question. Get a first preferably so you are scored high in the scoring system for some unis... and do well in UKCAT for the most of the unis..

    get interview then ace them-- get offer and fulfil it (the hardest part IMO)

    because though i am on a gap year, i am still enrolled on my degree programme. basically, i will enter my third year of studies next september if all goes well. so i have between now and july/september to prepare for the ukcat, get some work experience etc.

    I think UEA requires you to have your degree already as well (this is for entry into their 5yr course)
    I applied (and got an interview) when I was in my final year of my 1st degree to UEA last year. I guess also that you could apply to even Leicester having not graduated if you've taken a gap year and got paid work for that time.

    Oh really? Well this year (IIRC from the UEA thread) people doing degrees got rejected for them not being completed. I shall look it up.....

    EDIT: Okay, it was to do with Masters: "even though I meet the graduate criteria, as I am currently studying a masters they judged me by the masters criteria which requires a complete masters. Obviously as my studying is in-progress I don't have this."
