    Which Universities automatically defer a failed application to for the 4 year GEM route and place your application onto the 5 year GEM route?

    Just wondering if anyone knows has experienced this. I have read somewhere that there is no need to apply for both these courses with the same medical school if that university re-enters you on the 5 year course if your 4 year application fails.

    Thanks for any help.

    King's does if you reach the interview stage for the 4-year GPEP course. That's not to say you'll definitely receive an offer for the 5-year course at worst - it depends on both how well you did at the GPEP interview and to the number of spaces not taken up by school leavers.

    Good to know. I thought there were more that offered this but I'll do some research.

    It's handy to know though as it's like an extra backup without using one of your 4 choices.

    Does it work the other way at King's or any other Med school? I.e apply to the 5-year course and automatic consideration for the 4-year course?

    No. Well, not that I can see anyway. Apply to the 4 course and get to the interview stage but fail, and you will get an interview for the 5 year course is how I understand it.

    Nope, 4-year courses are even more fiercely oversubscribed with applications so it wouldn't make sense to.

    True! Do you know of any other than King's for the other way round?
