I am currently studying Level 3 BTEC in Applied Science and AS Biology. I am wanting to apply to Medicine but have no idea what I should do. I am able to go to university this year but have less options but if I go next year I have more options. I am not sure how I can get into the medicine course in the long run. How can I apply to the course? Any advice would be appreciated.

You are definitely too late for 2018 entry as the applications closed in October. Have you asked admissions regarding conversion?

Have a look at https://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/sho....php?t=1271084. Old thread but still relevant

I know about it being too late. It's just that I could go to university this year if I wanted to and get in via graduate entry. I just am unsure of what to do though.

I will check out the link thanks.

Oh you mean for degrees like biomedical sciences etc.! Yes definitely. However graduate entry medicine is equally competitive (if not harder to get in), and the course itself is very intensive as it is effectively doing X years' worth of learning in (X-1) years. If you like medicine though, go for it!

Yes, but you have to spend 3+ years doing another degree.
