University Course Bio Medical Doctor Medicine Transfer watch

    • Thread Starter

    Basically I was aspiring to do Medicine at the end of last year but my grades at AS did not come out high enough for Medicine. They weren't high enough to be accepted into any Biomedical Sciences either. Instead I've got a offer of Applied Sciences at Manchester Met. My dream is to become a doctor and I know I've really messed up in the sense of not working hard. I was wondering if there is any way i could transfer from this course to something better? Thank you

    You can apply for graduate entry medicine if you achieve a 2:1 or above in your degree; the GEM courses are 4 years, rather than 5-6 (except at Imperial) as they account for your previous scientific background.

    If your results are better than expected you can go through UCAS Adjustment, and either way you can also look in clearing if there are any BMS courses that are of interest.

    As said, do GEM if you really want to do medicine. There are a small handful of courses which allow transfers to medicine after the first year (or there were back when I was applying), but they're extremely competitive.

    Or do nursing, if you're really on the par to be a doctor you can do just as well in a career in nursing, if not better (from the doing interesting stuff standpoint, you'll still earn a little less, but educated nurses or nurse managers can still earn on par with experienced GPs).
