    Yer, there are a couple of places that offer medicine with a foundation year that you have to have done no science A-levels (as opposed to doing them and not doing very well). UEA, sheffield and manchester spring to mind. GKT too maybe.

    Year 0 foundation course, there are different ones such as one where you don't have a science background but perform really well in the subjects you do have. KCL does a slightly different one where you have to come from an underprivileged background and have CCC or something like that (in sciences though), Soton has a widening access course too.

    There's a few unis that offer a foundation year for medicine but only if you don't have science subjects at A-level (though some of them will allow you to have one science). Search on UCAS. It generally says something like 'medicine with foundation' or 'medicine-premedical entry'. They still generally require you to have high grades in your non-science subjects.

    So there are a few, would you still need work experience as a virtual prerequisite etc?

    I ask because I advise people alot at school and want to be equipt to give them correct and, if possible, fairly exhastive information.

    thanks =]

    Absolutely, at the end of the day entry to the course is entry to the profession, just like 5- or 4-year. Because of the scarcity of places on these courses, I would expect that you'd have to work harder to show dedication and commitment.

    You need to do everything as if you were applying to Med bar apptitude tests (afaik).

    You still need to get AAB/AAA but not in science A levels.

    I'd assume they were more competetive too for the reasons Renal said.

    Ah thanks, I was under the impression that the ukcat was not actually science based so thought you would still have to do it - shows what I know ¬¬ lol
