Hi guys,

I'm a paramedic with 6 years exp with the London ambulance service, gaining a Foundation Degree (240 credits) in paramedic science 4 years ago.

I always wanted to do medicine, but due to a nasty battle with depression my grades at a-level were not all that. From memory CCC maths/bio/chem.

I'm looking to transfer to medicine. Has anyone any exp switching to medicine? Would I be eligible to apply for GEM / get accepted for medicine with these grades? I'm finding it difficult to see if universities would accept an FdSc to allow me a place on the course. And if I had to start from scratch, I'm not sure I would ger accepted.

Any help/guidance appreciated, thankssss

Some universities do have an A level requirement on the GEP program and some even have a degree requirement (Imperial College, for example). However, there are some which don't have any requirements for any qualifications prior to uni level. I only know of Nottingham and Warwick as examples, but there may be more. So you have a good chance of getting these universities at least. You could also start from scratch, as you have extenuating circumstances, but I'm not sure how feasible that is.
