I think you should study whatever you want to at the undergraduate level before making the jump to GEP. A number of GEP programmes take students from all walks of life, and to be honest it doesnt majorly affect their performances in medicine. You'd expect them to find learning the biology and biochem very challenging compared to the biomed graduates, but from my course I know some students who did Engineering and Maths who are simply brilliant students on the course! A lot better than myself, coming from a Physiology background anyway!

I meant part way through..like i read st.georges lets a few people transfer to med after doing their 2nd year.. (thats for fast track into med).. i just dont know how 'competitive' that would be.
thanks for your reply..though im confused..you say its v.competitive to get into med as a graduate so how come 90% of your friends got in?? (unless all your friends are geniuses!)
No I think it was just grit determination, one mindedness and persistance and using every contact they have to help out with arranging work experience, helping with the PS and so on. I probably didn't show these qualities as I was one of the few in our class who was open minded to other career options.
By the way, unless things have changed, I believe that St George's you have to have finished your degree then go into the 3rd year of medicine if you meet certain requirements.Last edited by ghanglish; 29-01-2010 at 14:09.
