I am really considering studying medicine in Bulgaria, what are the entry requirements for the courses? (Google hasn't provided me with straight answers lol) Do I have to meet certain GCSE or A-level grades? Any help given would be very much appreciated, thanks

Watch out with medicine abroad, often you wouldn't be licensed to practice in the UK.

Quick google search said there's English-taught medical courses, look at University of Sofia for one.

"Sofia Medical University has certain entry requirements. Foreign citizens who want to study Medicine, Dentistry or Pharmacy at Sofia Medical University can only be admitted after they have completed their secondary education. The main requirement for foreign citizens who want to study at Sofia Medical University is to have Biology and Chemistry grades in their high-school diploma. The results must be above 62% in the respective country. All applicants must sit a basic admission test in Chemistry and Biology."

You're 'really considering' it so much you haven't bothered to research it at all? You're probably considering it because you don't think you have any chance of meeting UK entry requirements and have heard it might be easier abroad.

I have reasearched the medical school requirements, however google hasn't given me any straight answers. I am considering medical schools abroad because you finish with a higher degree than you do in the UK. I have met the requirments for medical schools in this country, that's not the issue.

You need 62% or more in Chemistry and Biology at A level, which university are you considering in Bulgaria?

Really? Which ones?
Also I wouldn't be surprised if they were increasing, more people are becoming aware of this pathway and so it's becoming more competitive.
