    Hello, I am currently a second year adult nursing student and studying for the GAMSAT also, so I can sit it in September 2019 in my final year. Is there anyone on here who has completed a nursing degree before and successfully got into GEM?
    Any help would be much appreciated, starting to doubt whether it's achievable for me or not x

    There's at least 4 nurses in my year at Warwick, plus my GF starts here next week too and she has been a nurse for 8yrs. So it's absolutely achievable, best of luck!

    Thankyou! It's just I'm well aware that a lot of people will have life sciences degrees and a lot of GEM students will have biomed. Was worried they would look unfavorably upon nursing degrees!

    If you really wanted to, but it’s a bit long winded if medicine is your end goal. Nursing isn’t an easy course, there’s are people who study it then decide they’d like to try and move into medicine, but for the vast majority of people who study nursing, becoming a registered nurse is their goal.

    Although I am using my degree to get into GEM, I do not recommend using nursing to get into medicine! Getting into undergraduate medicine as a school leaver is so much better or doing a life science degree, would leave you with more options, in regards to medical schools you can apply for! Nursing should not be used as a way into medicine, because nursing students are assessed the same as any other degree applying to medicine. I may sound like a hypocrite, but nursing is the degree I'm doing now and that just so happens I want to apply for GEM, however, I didn't set out to do nursing and use it in this way.
