So I'm still indecisive about what I want to study and keep goingback and forth. So what are the requirments of medicine in the UK?

Are there any specific tests I need to take?
What subjects should I have?
What grades am I expected to have?
Any additional requirements for international students?

I would really appreciate if anyone would post links aswell so I can read and look further into it

- UKCAT (the admissions test required by majority of med schools)
- or BMAT (required by oxbridge, ucl, imperial, lancaster, brighton&sussex)

Postgrads:
- GAMSAT for grad entry medicine

- Chemistry and Biology is required to a high standard i.e. A or A* (or equivalent)

- International students need to be proficient in speaking the English language too~

Anyone with more info on int students, please feel free to add! >_<

Chemistry is a must.
AAA is the lowest with the exception of foundation and widening participation offers
Some unis want A*AA or A*A*A
You will need to take either UKCAT or BMAT or both, depending on the Uni. GAMSAT for some graduate programmes.
Requirements for international students are stated on the website of each medical school.
