Interview invite from Keele for 6 year Medicine. 27 Feb. If im honest I’m nervous about Keele because it is *so* inconvenient- husband and I live in Leeds, and he’s in no way moveable, so it would mean living apart. :-(

Lol - applied for GEM @ Warwick & Newcastle, [email protected] Newcastle and 6yr @ Keele, plus Clinical Sciences Foundation at Bradford, which I’m interviewing for on Wednesday.

I’m set on *medicine* so if I were to get A104 Keele I’d have to try to make it work... but equally - Clinical Sciences at Bradford would let me reapply next year to HYMS, Leeds and maybe Newcastle gem - if I actually studied for UKCAT I reckon I could bring it up from 670. (I know it was a long shot for the GEM, but as a 30yo with multiple advanced degrees, it was worth the shot from the contextual side of things)

I'm so confused because I haven't got any update on track from Keele

Also, how were all of your experiences in applying for foundation year medicine

Hi mate. Really keen to hear how you’re getting on with applications? Can we speak? I’d be very happy to give you my number (private message me). Thank you

I’m from a non science background wanting to study medicine

Hi All, I am in the process of applying to medicine with foundation year course and was wondering who else is applying?
As well as what GCSE grades have you got, A-level grades if known, and UKCAT scores ?
I want this so badly!!!

Hi. I would advise looking at each university's criteria for their foundation program because they often have additional non-academic criteria too, such as socio-economic background, current school rankings etc. but otherwise those predicted grades and volunteering would definitely boost your application. best of luck

Hello! I’m currently looking at the a104 course,how have you found it so far and how is it structured differently in terms of the course. For example is the first year mainly focused on catching up with the relevant science as I’m in the same situation of not taking chemistry but I’ve taken biology

Hey I got an offer with Biology, Psychology and Economics, predicted AAA. I’d say you have a chance if you reapply and take a gap year. But id say revise for the UKCAT now because I tried a week before and got an atrocious score😭 587.5 total. One last piece of advice, get WORK EXPERIENCE, THEY LOVE IT. I’d say volunteering st an elderly home or kids charity is good as it shows you care about people, and then get some at a hospital or GP too as they ask you to fill out a form with 2 work experiences and you need contact details for someone who can verify. Hope this helps and all the best🤗

Be aware that there are other 'Year 0' Medicine courses apart from just A104.

For instance, Gateway to Medicine (A108) at Bristol. This is a specifically Widening Participation course and so you must be going to one of their identified schools to apply for it. Other Unis also have A108 courses with other specific criteria like 'local applicants only' etc. Check them all out, not just those with 'Foundation' in the title.
