    just out of curiosity why don't you apply for the standard 5 year programmes. your stats are enough to get you to any 5 year courses.

    That is not true, they interviews as low as 630 last year, somebody even got an interview with a UKCAT of 612.

    The deciles have gone down aswell, therefore unis will have a lower cut off.

    You should really apply to the standard course.

    Wouldn't that applicant most likely have had loads of A*s to compensate that ?
    And since I'm eligible, I'm using this for a greater chance of getting in

    Hi guys

    1. what does kings mean by :
    "A maximum of four choices on the UCAS form may be made for programmes which lead to a professional qualification in medicine.

    You may add one of the following alternative non-health programmes to your UCAS application: Biochemistry, Molecular Genetics, Pharmacology, Pharmacology & Molecular Genetics, Physiology, Neuroscience, Human Sciences and Biomedical Science."

    I want apply to 3 or 4 biochem places (including kings biochem) and only to 1 medicine course (King's EMDP) so a total of about 4 courses.

    2. Does this mean I can only apply to 1 biochem course?? Or can I apply to more than 1 as well as emdp
    do the rest have to be either medicine or something else?
    I only feel confident applying to medicine EMDP i dont want to apply to anyother course but medicine or biochem

    3. also does biochem count as a programme leading to a professional qualification in medicine? im sure it does not but just please confirm for me

    can anyone advise me here???
    i am worry so much about this
    Thank youu

    By this it means that those applying for medicine can only have up to four medicine choices but there is no lower limit.

    So you can apply for just one medicine course. Your other choices can be used for biochemistry. Universities do not see your other choices now but your personal statement indicates it. Usually universities that receive a statement that isn't geared for the course - for example they receive a medicine personal statement for biochemistry, they may ask you for another one to be sent to them. Also, you can apply for just medicine and fill your other choices by the January deadline.

    Biochemistry is quite different from medicine. Only medicine courses will be approved by the General Medical Council.

    To all those people predicted over AAA, doesn't it say on the website that the six year program is ABB-AAA? I know some unis with a gateway/foundation year for med don't look at those that have the grades to apply for their five year course. I'm a little confused so, can someone explain this me please?

    You can apply here if your predicted over AAA because there are other factors that are considered e.g. GCSEs and UKCAT for standard five year course. My predictions are A*AA and a UKCAT of 703 average BUT I have rather weak GCSEs (only 2A*, 6A and 3B's). For safety I decided to apply to EMDP. Some people have great predicted grades (3 A*s) but lack in another aspect e.g. UKCAT and/or GCSEs.

    Very true, just to add that some people that are predicted above AAA may also be retakes, so they won't be considered for the 5 year course

    Yes. It's so frustrating because they encourage enquiries to be made through the portal yet I haven't received login details to be able to do this. Can't submit an enquiry due to website errors and can't find an admissions email address either.
    May just have to give them a call tomorrow.
    I'm worried because I forgot to submit my GCSE English language but am now sorting this out with UCAS. Could explain the missing email but that may be due to all their current technical issues.

    Yes its best to get these things sorted out. Do remember to check the spam folder tho! A lot of important mails from unis are often in your spam. The southampton emails are often in spam as far as I know.
