    This is what you mean:
    https://www.imperial.ac.uk/study/ug/...raduate-entry/

    Also look at GEM at other universities (Graduate Entry Medicine)

    Hi, I'm doing biomed at Queen Mary (well, I'm currently on the foundation year but it's what I'll progress too), and as far as I know it is possible to move to medicine after biomed. However, its very very competitive, so to stand any real chance you would probably need to be in a very highly ranked university and get a first hon, and have lots and lots of relevant work experience. And I guess you'd have to make some way for you to stand out from all the other applications.

    Also, Imperial are very very fussy with who they accept for medicine, and I hate to be a downer but you may want to try for a couple of other unis as well

    Low as grades or a2? If its just low AS grades, work your ass off and get AAA at a-level and apply to medicine as an undergraduate. Far easier than aiming for GEM.

    Not the case, read the entry requirements!

    Also to point out, Imperial have a 5 year graduate entry programme. This means that the tuition fees aren't covered by SFE, unlike the 4 year GEM courses. So you would need at least (probably more in a few years) £36k to cover GEM at Imperial.
