    Hi. Would anybody know the admissions policy for Medicine following giving up Physics after the first year when realising Medicine is your vocation in life and planning to apply for September 2017 after taking this next year to gain more work experience please.

    Any advice would be absolutely great.

    Thanks

    Just wondering what the policy is for somebody giving up a course after year 1 and applying for Medicine as it seems that if you apply for Medicine whilst in a course already there are lots of universities that will not even consider you. Not sure if you finish year 1 and apply for the intake the following year i.e. having a year out, where you stand then.

    In a nutshell? Most unis look very unfavourably on leaving a degree program. You should contact each school directly and ask what their stance is, but expect to be limited where you can apply.

    Thank you. We thought as much. This is for my son. Ticked every single conceivable box for applying for Medicine, got 4A*s (although doesn't everybody applying for Medicine!), did umpteen work experiences, D of E's, you name it he had done it all except the UKCAT and BMAT as he had a change of heart at the last minute and decided to apply for Pure Physics at Manchester. Within two months of starting the degree he realises Medicine is where he wants to be. Unfortunately I'm thinking his ship may have possibly sailed!
