    Hey guys,


    Here's a little info about my situation...


    I'm a grade 11 Canadian high school student. I haven't done IB or AP. Applying to UK med schools.


    So I was wondering, what exactly do I put in the Qualifications section of the Education part to the application? Currently, I have my admissions test (UKCAT) and my Ontario Secondary School Diploma. My question is: Under the qualifications do I list all my grade 11 and future grade 12 marks/courses and if so, do I list it under "Standard Grade" since I do not have IB or AP qualifications??


    Any help would be greatly appreciated.


    Thanks

    There were similar questions asked here:

    https://www.facebook.com/ucasonline/...94973900535730

    and here:

    http://www.newmediamedicine.com/foru...an-grades.html

    However, I see that Queen Mary (University of London) gives specific advice to Canadian students with your qualifications, here:

    http://www.qmul.ac.uk/international/...tries//canada/

    but that page goes onto say that applicants to their medicine course would need either IB or AP. Have you checked whether this is the case for the med schools that you were thinking of applying to?

    Thank you for the response. This definitely helped me a lot. I still have not contacted my universities, but I will in the coming weeks.

    Thanks again

    You need to contact them now. Why are you being so lazy about it, if you want to be a doctor? How can you make plans about moving to a different country and studying one of the most competitive degrees in that country, without even knowing if you can? An email will take a few minutes.

    I am not being lazy about it, as I live in Canada and there is a 5-6 hour time difference between here and the UK, and there offices are closed. I prefer to speak with them directly, rather than email because I do have alot of questions. Thank you for your concern, though.

    I was also wondering for our Canadian high schools, what is the awarding organisation? Is it our school, our school board, and in terms of the highest level of qualifications I expect to have before I start my course, is it below honours degree, considering I have not done IB or AP??

    Thanks
