    Well here is my scenerio. I was planning to take my AS exams in Jan 2011 and A2 exams in June 2011. But I realised I can't apply for medicine for the year 2011 because my AS results will come out in March and you have to appy before that.

    Whats the final final deadline for medicine? People said the final deadline for other courses was September but I found out you actually have till june!!! So I want to know the LAST LAST deadline?

    Thanks

    The final deadline for medicine for 2011 entry will be 15th October 2010. This will be before you even sit your AS exams so it is unlikely that universities will consider you for 2011 entry. If you really want to apply for 2011 entry then my advise would be to sit your AS exams in the summer of 2010 so you have your AS grades by August thus making you elibable to apply for 2011 entry. If this is not possible then a gap year is possibly the best option. If you do take a gap year make sure you do something useful in it that enhances your chances of getting in. Hope this helps and good luck.

    Barring extreme cases this doesn't change, I don't know where you heard you could apply in June.

    Is there a rule saying you HAVE to apply with AS results? I appreciate it may put you at a disadvantage not having them (why are you doing them in one year anyway?) but if you meet the age etc requirements, is it actually not allowed to apply without AS grades?

    You can probably apply without AS results with just predicted grades. You'll be no different than a large number of IB applicants. I applied without any actual results for 2009 entry (no GCSEs as I am not from the UK), just IB predictions and got 2 offers and 3 interviews. Decided on a gap year though.

    But the thing is I am planning on doing private studies so who will predict my grades for me?

    My advice would be to ask the universities that shortlist based on UKCAT or BMAT whether they would deselect you for not meeting the minimum requirements without predicted grades. If they wouldn't do it automatically, then I'd apply there and try to impress at interview. Newcastle is one of those that shortlist based on UKCAT.
