    Hey everyone.

    I have a BA in Philosophy from a respected university. If I wanted to do medicine as a postgraduate degree, would I have to go back to school and do physics and chemistry A-level? I did biology at A-level, my only science A-level.

    If you have a 2.i you would be considered. You need to do the work experience and voluntary work thing and UKCAT or BMAT depending on the university. Some of the med schools might ask you for A level chemistry because of your lack of science. Some will be happy with an A in Biology and other will not care. You need to contact or look up each one to see their requirements for graduates

    Best bet would be to look at doing the GAMSAT entry exam and applying to Notts, St George's or Swansea. Notts and George's consider 2.2 as well but you need a higher pass mark in GAMSAT.
