University of Birmingham Medicine and Further Maths AS watch

    • Thread Starter

    Currently I study Maths, Chem, Bio and Further Maths AS - I'll definitely be dropping FM next year so I'll be doing the two sciences and maths for A2.

    Bham say they don't consider Maths and Further Maths as separate subjects for medicine so does this mean I have no chance of getting in or is there a way around this? I'm predicted As in all four subjects if that makes a difference.

    Thanks in advance.

    My friend does Further math, math, biology and chemistry and he got in last year... so i would say you do have a chance.
    Phone them and ask them if you have any doubt.

    At the open day for 2015 entry they clearly stated it would not be accepted at AS if mathematics is taken so therefore you wouldn't meet the 4 As at AS level requirement. Sorry to be the bearer of bad news, maybe this will change for 2016 entry as a new system is likely due to them introducing an entrance test (UKCAT or BMAT).
