Hi all,

I was wondering what the difference with these courses is?
I got AABCC (Maths, Biology, Chemistry, Further Maths, Physics) at AS - would I be eligible to
take this course?
Would I still be able to become a doctor with this course?

Foundation courses are medicine degrees with an additional foundation year which you have to pass (usually at 70%) before entry to year one of that uni's medicine degrees. They are usually aimed at people without science/chemistry A-levels or those who meet certain widening participation (socio-economic) criteria; eligibility varies between unis.

Yes. They usually have a year at the start and then you join the medicine course as standard. We all get the same degree at the end :yes:. Your subects and grades are fine for a lot of them.

Look for BM6 at Southampton, EDMP and Kings, then A2Leeds, Durham, Nottingham, UEA, there are lots!
