    I want to transfer universities for point 2 entry. The one I am at currently is accredited for biomedical sciences but the one i want to transfer is not accredited. I want to do graduate medicine (4 year course), therefore; will it be important for my biomedical sciences degree to be accredited or not?

    Depends on what kind of person you are. If it was me I would keep to the accredited programme because it's a smarter option. Yes medicine is nice. However, no one is guaranteed a place. It's best to have a second and third option in life. Don't be one of those students who's life depends on a medical school offer.

    Doesn't an accredited degree only matter if you want to be a clinical scientist in the NHS?

    It really won't matter, honestly.

    GAMSAT and UKCAT matter the most
