    I have really rubbish A level grades but im doing a degree in sports science and thinking of applying after. What if I did work experience in nursing a few hours each week for a year?

    I don't know. However, I would reccommend you contact the university admissions for the med school you were thinking of applying to and see what they say.

    Good luck anyway

    Medicine being the most competitive course in the country, you'd have to prove why you are better than (on average) 37 other people. In most medical schools, there is one place for 37 people. Without good A-Levels and GCSE grades, you'll stick out like a sore thumb. Most prospective applicants will have great academic appraisals, good records of achievement, excellent references, and, ontop of that, they will have good Work Experience. I would say your chances are slim. But that is not to say you are at a losses end, you're not; but the chances are slim, sorry. Good luck though.

    I recommend you contact the member, "Fluffy" and ask her your questions. She is a 2nd year Med student who knows her stuff.

    Realistically, with medecine being so competative, the answer is probably no unless you take a year out to get better grades.

    Is a "4 year GEP" a foundation course? Because I think it's easier to get in with a foundation course (i.e. adding an extra year to the course duration to relearn and review everything that you'll need). And then you'll have a sound understanding of what you need to know, making your university years easier.
