    see my problem is that all the medical schools have told me to go and do another degree before i reapply to medicine as my a levels are letting me down (im doing them across 3 years). i had an offer last year and right now the thought of graduate entry scares me so much and im worried they'll reject me, what with the increase in applications etc. i guess i'm just incredibly frustrated at the moment so the thought of transferring is appealing at the moment rther than longing for a medical school place for yet another 3/4 years.
    The problem with transferring is that it depends on the number of places. Although it is theoretically possible to transfer from say biomed to medicine, this can only be possible if they have one or two places, which they might not have. I agree with you, a transfer would be preferable to graduate entry but it would be a serious risk.

    Hi,
    I was wondering this myself, and I have rung the admissions of every med school in the uk- around 40% of them will accept applications from people who started a year of another course. Some even consider it an advantage. I have a list somewhere of those who were ok with it, and if I find it will let you know.

    I would advise you to ring the admisions of the uni's you're thinking of applying to just to check, but you will definitely be able to do this with a lot of them. I think this is what I will end up doing with a medicine related course while I reapply.

    Please PM me too or post the list here.
    I'm curious to know what stance the different medical schools take towards this question.

    If this is true, it would be helpful if you could post a thread detailing their responses to stop people asking in the future.
