    Hello guys,

    Thought I'd ask here first in the hope of perhaps someone having already gone down this route or at least having knowledge about it.

    I'm a mature student (Arts graduate) who holds A-levels in English, Law, ICT (AAA) but is looking to add Chemistry, Biology and possibly Physics to that mix in preparation for an application for standard entry (5-yr) into medicine.

    Does anyone know anything about (or perhaps could recommend places as to where I could self-study or study online) gaining these qualifications in a year? I live in Spain currently (teacher/marketeer/journalist/Spanish speaker) but could obviously come back to sit them at any point.

    Any help would be super appreciated.

    Thanks,

    Why would you not apply for graduate entry courses? You could spend the less time and less money studying for the GAMSAT, take that along with UKCAT, and apply to many different unis for grad entry. It's much much cheaper to do gem than undergrad...

    Jenny, thanks for that input. That is actually my initial plan but I thought I'd also check out the A-level option too in order to cover my bases.
