Want to go into Medicine, studying the wrong course watch

    • Thread Starter


    Is it possible to go into Medicine with Biology, Maths and Psychology, like Doctor GP etc?

    Unfortunately, you do need to do A Level chemistry if you want to study the conventional 5 year medicine courses. The only place I can think of which doesn't require a full A Level in Chemistry is Barts and The London, however they want it to AS at least, and I do think you'd be at a disadvantage to other applicants.

    However, there are foundation medicine courses. These are six years long (see http://goo.gl/31Hx5B) but they often don't require Chemistry and are targeted towards people with more humanities based subjects - though you could class all three of your subjects as sciences.

    Have a look at some foundation courses to see what their entry requirements are. Bear in mind that they are often extremely competitive so you'll need a strong application.
