    Hi everyone! Alexie here.

    I've decided that I want to study for medicine. I already graduated with a 2:1 in Adult nursing last year and currently working as a nurse I just want to ask if any of you guys know someone who was in my position and got to study medicine? My first choice is Kings (for their graduate entry) but they said they want A-level chemistry but I didn't study it during A-levels. Plus they want to make sure my nursing is 50% chemistry, which is not. Do I have to take A-level chemistry again? Or can I just do the UKCAT?

    My second choice is St.Georges, however I will have to revise for GAMSAT, meaning I have to study chemistry,physics and biology again.

    I am willing to do anything just to study medicine! I believe in hardwork and determination. Any help/suggestions guys?! THANK YOU!!

    There are lots of GEM programmes that don't require A-level chemistry, however, as you can see lots of them require either UKCAT, GAMSAT, or BMAT.

    Have a look through the universities in the link above and see which YOU are BEST suited to and go from there.
