    Hello people, wandering if I could get a bit of advice.

    I am coming to the end of a Business Studies degree at Lancaster University and expecting to graduate with a minimum of a 2.2, but I'm still hoping I will be achieving a 2.1.

    I understand that with a 2.2 I wouldn't be eligible for many graduate 4 year courses, but I've seen St Georges that I might be eligible for, and therefore will be applying to that.

    My A Level results are 'ok'. I got 2 A's in Business Studies and General Studies (not that the latter is worth anything) a B at Media Studies and a C at Sociology. In addition, I got 5 A's, 4 B's and 1 C at GCSE (with A's in Maths, English Lang., and B's in Sciences)

    After I graduate I will be moving down to London to work, but I do not plan on staying for long, I'm merely trying to gain some experience until I join a Medical School.

    As I see it, I have a couple options:

    1. After a year or two of working, quit, join an Access course, develop my Science knowledge and then do GAMSAT, and hope to gain a position at St Georges

    or

    2. Carry on with my job and do a part time A-Level course in Biology and Chemistry. I'm not sure this option is viable due to the job and volunteering commitments taking up vast amounts of time.

    What do you guys think? How difficult is the GAMSAT exam? What level of the sciences is it? (e.g. AS/A2?)

    EDIT: I've also seen Nottingham.

    Thanks,

    Rick
