you need an average of 60% across all exams and you can't fail anything. Out of about 65 people in my year 27 applied to medicine the rest either didnt get the grades or decided medicine isnt for them. Theres 20 places but Leeds are not obliged to take the full 20. They only took 17 in my year. Hope that helps:p:

You do apply through UCAS...and if you read some of my previous posts you will definitely be able to understand how competitive it is.

Is the modulus that your supposed to do during the Clinical Scinece Course unbelievebly hard that you cannot get 60% out of it even with trying so hard and revising well?

As mentioned above, you need to achieve 60% average in Year 1 of Clinical Science or 70% in Foundation Year to be eligible to apply for Medicine.

As for the number of people who achieve places in Medicine, there are 20 places available in Year 1 of Medicine for Foundation Year students and 20 in Year 2 of Medicine for Year 1 Clinical Science students. Because there is a higher proportion of students applying in Year 1 than Foundation Year, more students tend to achieve one of the 20 places from Year 1 than Foundation. This year (2011 entry), ~40 students from Foundation Year applied. ~30 were interviewed and 18 were offered places in Year 1 of Medicine.

They don't make the exams so difficult that people don't achieve above the required mark. It's all down to how well you revise and cope on the day of the exam. If you're someone who has revised thoroughly, has a good understanding of all the concepts and learnt everything that needs to be known then you will find the questions challenging but completely fair. The difficulty of the lecture content gives you an idea of what to revise and in how much detail, so there are no hidden catches. They want to help you achieve the required grades, not make it harder for you.

You won't be able to apply for any other healthcare courses in Bradford as a back-up, because all the applications for the other courses (i.e. Pharmacy, Optometry, Physiotherapy) are done before the ones for Medicine. So you have to make a choice, stick with it and be dedicated to achieving a place on it. If you choose any of Pharmacy/Optometry/Physiotherapy then you can't apply for Medicine as well.

I have my interview at Bradford on the 1st of Feb. I'm very excited!

So you do clinical sciences in the first year and bradford and then go to second year med at leeds?
or
you do foundation year at Bradford and first year med at leeds?

bit confused

That depends which Clinical Science route you choose to take. If you choose Foundation Year, you will spend a year in Bradford and, if successful, progress to Year 1 of Medicine in Leeds. If you start from Year 1 of Clinical Science, you will progress to Year 2 of Medicine. The route you choose depends on your grades, experience and personal preference.

Alternatively, if you are unsuccessful in transferring from Foundation Year (i.e. you don't receive an interview for Medicine), you can continue to Year 1 of Clinical Science and gain a place in Medicine from there. However, you will need to think carefully about which point to start from (Foundation Year or Year 1 Clinical Science) as there are advantages and disadvantages to each course. If you have the right grades which make you eligible for both courses, you are given an opportunity on the interview day to specify which course you want to enter.

Hope that helps. Good Luck for your interview.

Hello

Hi I wanted to pursue a career in psychology but when I did my work experience in a hospital I also enjoyed my time there and realised i wanted to do medicine. My A level subjects do not meet the requirements and neither do my gcses. I take psychology, sociology and btec health and social care at a level and I achieved 1 A, 4 B's and 8 C's at GCSE. Will I be eligible to apply for the foundation year at bradford or leeds, do you think i have a good chance of getting in or not?

Hello, I know this post was a long time ago now but I recently got my place at Bradford for the foundation year in clinical sciences after losing my place at Bristol to study medicine. I was wondering how achievable you think this route into medicine is for someone who achieved a B at A-level biology and a C at A-level chemistry (although these grades were achieved under some difficult circumstances). What did you achieve at A-level and how did you find the course? Thank you.
