    I’ve just been accepted on the Access to Medicine and Dentistry course this coming September! I plan on studying Medicine after this. I was wondering how much prep I should do before I get there and how it is assessed? As I’m looking at Universities and it wants 45 credits in distinction mostly. Any advice regarding applying for medical school and how the access course works exactly would be fantastic! Thanks guys

    You will to use the search facility but there was a poster last year who did this course at Manchester and got a place at medical school. Female from Sheffield. If you can find an make contact with her through PM then i bet she could give you invaluable info.

    Imo A levels are superior to Access course an accepted everywhere, but Access courses are not.

    Theres loads of info about applying to Medical schools on these forums s read the stickies at the top of the medic forum.

    Access courses are c 18 units and then 15 of them are assessed. You get either a pass, merit or distinction for each unit. Each unit is normally worth 3 credits so 3x 15= 45 . No mistakes allowed basically and top marks all the way. You fall below this and youve more or less blown it.

    Oh my. Thank you very much, I will have a good search around. Sounds intense, I knew the level of work is very intense. I’m really hoping I’ll get my way through it! Thanks again.
