    st George's recommended that a good 5th choice would be biomedical sciences. They also have a (unique) programme where you can enter their 3 year biomedical programme and then use it to enter a 3 year medicine graduate.

    A few other universities do something similar. Complete one year of biomed/something related and you have the chance to transfer into first year medicine of that university or a partner university. Obviously very competitive. Newcastle and Bradford and the two that spring to mind.

    You dont have to make this decision right now if you are not sure.

    Many people don't realise this - you can just apply for your 4 Med choices now, and if you want/need to, you can add your 5th choice right up to the Jan deadline - it wont make any difference to the way that Uni views your application. Or you can just apply for 4 Med choices - and not use your 5th choice at all.

    Just remember - its a 'chance' not a certainty, so you could be stuck on Biochem/Biomed. And..... if you are thinking of following that up with Grad Entry Medicine, be aware that GEM is still an undergrad degree - and therefore you'll have to pay for most of it yourself. Taking a gap year/reapplying for 5 year Med is probably a better option.

    I wasn't replying to OP. I was replying the the person who thinks what St.George's do is unique. I mean it is in the sense that 3rd year biomed --> 3rd year medicine, but the idea itself of transferring course isn't unique. I know all about GEM because it's the path I'm going down and as a matter of fact, you only have to pay the first £3.5k.
