    Hi Guys!

    I have ABB in chem, bio and psychology A-levels.
    I gained a pharmacy scholarship after my A-levels but unfortunately I had a very hard time at university and despite everything that happened I didn't think Id even be graduating. Everything has calmed down as of last year and after finishing the 4 year masters course I only gained a 2:2.

    I have have been lucky enough to have more than 8 months summer placements all together in different hospitals on top of what university gave me on the course. *I want to study medicine but its not worth applying with a 2:2 is it?

    Nottingham currently accepts students with a 2:2 onto their GEM course, as shown on their FAQs page:
    https://www.nottingham.ac.uk/medicin...q/a101faq.aspx

    Also, Warwick will accept 'Minimum 2:1 in any subject. Or 2:2 and a Masters or Doctoral qualification'

    So, you could apply to either or both of those medical schools!
