Hi

I was just wondering if anyone knows of any med school which will accept a specialism in biochemistry over a level chemistry requirements. My a level grade was a C (one mark off a B), but my biochemistry modules are all firsts. Obviously, I'll email them all with the module details etc. but I just want an idea of if any allow it. Having the C in chemistry is very restrictive as to where I can apply.

The module titles I've done are: Introduction to biological molecules, Clinical biochem and analytical biochem (and next year research topics in biochem if I get the biochem specialism- we don't find out until september). These modules have covered pretty much all of the a level syllabus.

Hey - I've just done applications to gem this year (as in for 2013/14 entry).

I do cell biology at uni which where I go happens to be extremely similar to biochem so have a lot of biochem and chemistry for biologist modules. I also DID NOT take a level chemistry at all. Very few GEM courses ask for specific a level requirements and some of the ones that do (eg Southampton) will accept a suitable amount of chemistry in your degree as an alternative.

Obviously ask each uni you are interested in individually but it really wasn't a problem for me (either at the interview or offer stage)

Good luck with it all
