    I have just applied for university to do Medicine. I have one unconditional offer (my backup course, BioMedical Science), and one interview in December. The other 3 choices haven't responded yet.

    When do you apply/email to ask about scholarships and bursaries? I know I am eligible for some from these universities.

    Do I wait until I get decisions through or ask about it now?

    Thanks

    They are usually done automatically through links to student finance once you've accepted your place .

    They are not all automatic, some are and some aren't, so worth checking now when the deadlines are and if you do have to apply to make sure you don't miss out.

    There are also scholarships which are more general and open to students at any university, so doing some research now could also give you a better chance of finding more that you can apply for.

    I know their entry requirements are BCC. You also need GCSE English, Mathematics, Biology and Chemistry (or Dual Award Science) at grade C or 4. You also need to be a widening participation student - the website has the requirements on their course page for Clinical science foundation.

    I don't see any specific A Level requirements, just that they are BCC.

    My A levels were a bit complicated as I changed my mind during my AS levels. I studied Biology, Maths, Graphics and Geography, then changed to A2 level Biology, Maths, Graphics and took up Chemistry AS (which meant I had to complete a third year in college to complete my chemistry A2). I dropped Geography.

    I got BBB in my A levels and am currently studying chemistry A2 which I will complete this summer.

    The best advice I can offer to you is to either email or phone the university explaining your qualifications and what you want to do, and then they can explain their course requirements you need in more detail and whether you are eligible. Their advice is the best advice since they're the ones who are considering your application.

    If you're 100% set on medicine, you should contact other medical schools (probably ones with a foundation year) and ask if you are eligible, and whether you could change your A levels to science-based subjects and start from there. Maybe that would work. But again - talk to the universities directly since they're the ones who are going to be offering the places, not me.

    I wish you the best of luck!
