    18 I think.

    I remember seeing on Bristol Universy website that if you are below 18 at the start of the course you must live with a guardian or something.

    More universities than you think will accept you if you are 17. The best way to find out is to ring them up and ask, as information on med school websites isn't always clear. It depends on how mature you are, as well as when you'll turn 18 (most uni's have a date by which you must be 18, if not by the start of the course. For example, my 18th birthday's less than a month after the courses start at the uni's I'm going to apply to, so they said they're OK with it.)

    As far as I know, the uni's that will take U18's are:
    Birmingham, Bristol, Cambridge (check with specific colleges), Edinburgh, Liverpool, UCL, King's, Manchester, Oxford, Southampton.
    They might have changed since I checked though

    Hope that helps

    Yes. It's due to the early clinical contact. Those under 18, if they are offered a place, are asked to defer their entry by one year.

    They take people who are a few months younger than 18... The GMC prohibits any younger...
