I'm currently in my third year of my Biochemistry degree and on route to a high 2:1 / first class degree.
I was not / am not in a financial position to have applied for graduate entry medicine to start in 2016, so I thought I'd use my degree for a year to go and earn some money prior to applying this year for the 2017 rotation.
My question to existing GEM medicine students, or possibly non-GEM medicine students; - What would you do during the year to strengthen your application/chances?
Any advice is welcome! Thanks in advance,

Plenty of NHS work experience and prepping for the UKCAT/GAMSAT/BMAT depending on where you want to apply. You would need to sit those tests this year for 2017 entry. If you don't get strong scores in those it won't matter what you do over the gap year! Also push to get the First, some places give it weighting over and above a 2:I good luck x
