Hi all,

No need to panic - we will be looking at A104 applications in January and then we'll be contacting all of those who meet the mandatory criteria. So enjoy Christmas and you'll hear from us in the New Year

I'm really worried now. All I want to do in life is become a doctor and help others. I can't see my self doing anything in the future. Just been rejected from kings college EMDP, really hoping that UEA invite me for an interview. I have visited the campus so many times and it really is beautiful.

Mine are pretty low but I didn't think they'd look at it that much since its foundation but people that applied have ukcat scores good enough for a normal medicine course lol

This sounds really stupid but I just want to make sure, when the thread says 2016 does this mean for people applying this year? I'm in year 12 and this October we'll be making applications, I plan on applying for this course. Does this thread apply to me?

Hi guys, studying AS at the moment and hoping to study medicine with a foundation year. Should be able to achieve 3A's at A Level (Chemistry, Biology and Maths). Would of applied for normal medicine however my GCSES are at 1A*5A's4B's1C. Are these still good enough to apply for foundation medicine? And more importantly would I have a good chance if I achieved these grades (Based on purely Academics). Thanks!

6. I am predicted to achieve AAA at A2 level and* am considering applying for this course in case I do not secure a place on a five year medicine course. Is this a good idea?

No, we do not advise this. Applicants presenting with AAA predicted at A2 level are unlikely to benefit from the foundation year. A104 candidates should be able to demonstrate why they would benefit from the foundation year.

Sourse: https://www.uea.ac.uk/study/admissions-info/a104faq

However, they say "we do not ADVISE this", so i guess you could, but your chances would be pretty low.

HI I'm currently in year 11 and I don't know if I should choose B tech applied sciense or a levels. I heard some people got into medicine with B tech's, Is that true?

Anyone who can tell me the right directions into the medicine courses with or without foundation.

And good Luck for anyone who is applying

First of all you need to hope that you year does bad averagely, as less than 60% of students must have achieved 5+A*-C including English and maths. For A-Levels you can't have a social life if you want to do well. I think that unis prefer a levels due to the fact that in BTEC you have no end of year exams, you have assignments that you can take home. I've only heard of UEA accepting BTEC for medicine and no where else so by doing a BTEC your reducing your choices. Remember that theses foundation courses aren't designed for bright people, they're designed for people with lower grades but have a true passion for medicine.

For starters I said "heard of", so there might be others. I don't think the unis you listed accept BTEC for medicine, I might be wrong though

Did anyone have to provide evidence of the social/contextual criteria? Since i have sent them the applications, i didnt hear anything. Not even to prove if i am eligible. Has anyone?

We are starting to invite applicants to interview this week for A104, but as this is done in batches there is no reason to panic if you do not hear this week!
