Hi guys

So I know this has been posted a few times but I never really found the answer I was looking for

I'm currently doing healthcare science life science Bsc (biomedical science with integrated placement) at the end of it I'll be a band 5 biomedical scientist, I'm interested in microbiology and cellular pathlogy, but only medical doctors/clinicians actually so the reviewing of samples etc which is what I want to do.

I know you can get onto graduate entry medicine and go from there, but what sort of grades will you need and what unis do it? I'm currently at UWE in Bristol and I looked at Bristol uni but theirs is another 4 years?! Is that right? As I thought I saw someone else say there's ones that are 2 years.

Thanks in advance

They all 4 years long. Normally this would be 5, or 6 with an an intercalc BSc.
Will need a first or 2.1, or a 2.2 for Nottingham. Lots of work experience... and to pass any psychometric tests they use.

I got into GEM with biomedical science, so your degree is fine. GEM courses are all 4 years, and quite a lot of unis do it. You'd need a 2:1 or above, though. A 2:2 would limit you greatly.
The wiki page has some good info. http://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/cont...dicine-a-guide

It took me literally 4 seconds to type 'graduate entry medicine' in to google and click on the first link...
