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.
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!
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.
Guys calm down, I don't think anyone has been asked to send any documents etc to UEA yet, their still looking at the applications and most likely we'll hear late January or early Feb
