    Hey guys, In a bit of a difficult situation at the moment was wondering if anyone would be able to help. I was planning to apply for graduate entry medicine but ended up doing quite badly on the ukcat, averaging roughly 580. I have my UCAS form ready, so I'm thinking of applying to 5 year courses as not to waste my application. Which universities do I stand a good chance of recieving an interview/offer? My qualifications/work experience are as follows -
    • 2.1 in Biomedical science
    • A*AB at A level in Geology, Biology and Chemistry
    • 4A's 4B's and a C at GCSE
    • 6 Days on hospital work experience (Shadowing) in various wards/surgery
    • 4 weeks GP shadowing
    • Voluntary work at a charity shop over 3 years
    • Starting hospital volunteering soon, for a minimum period of 6 months
    So far the universities I have in mind are Keele and UEA

    Thanks in advance!

    Hi, I take it that you didn't sit GAMSAT? Keele and UEA 5year courses are good options from what I have researched. Keele reject scores in the bottom 20% nationally and UEA don't have a cut off from what I have read.

    Have you considered sitting BMAT? I think that is in November but I have no idea when the registration deadline is/was...

    The trouble is funding....you have to pay the first 4 years of tuition fees yourself for the 5 year course (just fyi incase you didn't know)
