    I'm a graduate (as recent as last year) and I'm wondering if anyone has any tips for applying to Med schools. I'm applying in Scotland only. My GCSE's are decent, but I didn't do any bio or chem and only a bit of math and physics. I'm thinking about taking classes now and applying in the fall. Any thoughts?

    Well there are no graduate entry courses in Scotland, so if you're only applying there, it would be for the five year course. There is a huge financial implication which comes with that if you have received funding for s previous degree so make sure you know the costs. Additionally all five year programmes in Scotland require a minimum of AAA at A level including Chemistry and one other science, so if you don't have that, you will need to get it before applying. You also need to take the UKCAT. The other option, if you have a first or 2:1 is to apply in England. You would have to take the GAMSAT or UKCAT for Warwick and you wouldn't need the A Levels.
