Hi. I was wondering if anybody had any help or advice to offer. I have been a lawyer since 2009 graduating in 2007 with a 2:1 from Leeds; I have been fortunate to practice abroad and in the UK. 18 months ago I began to look into a change of career in particular medicine. To assist with the decision I've done a number of medical related work placements. I sat my UKCAT yesterday in order to apply for the 6 year extended medical degree programme to begin in Sept 2018.

Some pertinent details are below:
I'm 33 now;
GCSE: 2A*, 6A, 2B
A Level: History: A, English: A, Biology: British, General Studies: A
My UKCAT scores were as follows: 620, 620, 660, 640 and SJT Level 2.

I want to apply to Manchester, Liverpool, Cardiff and Durham ..does anyone have any thoughts, comments or suggestions?

Thanks in advance.

Hi there !

I am also a law to medicine switch and hoping to apply for the 6 year degree for 2018. I am about to enter into my final year of my LLB and have chosen to specialise in medical law & forensic medicine. I knew from 1st year that law wasn't really for me but stuck it out in the hopes that it would get better.
I am hoping to apply for Dundee and Manchester this year, and if i don't get in then i would take a year out and take my science highers as well as sit the GAMSAT.

Are you also going to sit the GAMSAT because i think for graduate applicants for Cardiff its the GAMSAT instead of the UKCAT. Also do Durham still run their medicine foundation course as I was quite keen to apply there but couldn't find it on the website anymore...

To my knowledge, none of the universities you're applying to are 6 year courses. Universities such as imperial and ucl offer the 6 year medicine degree.
Also, I'm afraid your UKCAT scores do seem low for a graduate applicant; many graduate applicants will have 700+ average but if you're applying for the undergrad courses, the UKCAT cut off will be slightly lower.
Additionally, many undergrad courses will require an A level in chemistry so you might want to look further into graduate entry medicine. If so, you'll have to sit the GAMSAT

When OP is saying 6 years he means with foundation year, not intercalated year, so he is correct

Are you sure? I don't think he'll be eligible for a foundation year
