Hello, I am a Canadian student. I finished high school with quite a high average and applied to a highly competitive program to a well known university in Ontario. however, I feel like i'm putting myself at a disadvantage by doing 4 years for a bachelor degree and then applying to an ontarian medical school. I was wondering if any of you have and knowledge about applying to UK medical schools from my situation. I prefer if the universities would look at my highschool averages rather than my first year university average (there was a huge drop from 97-ish to around 83-ish)... So i would also like it if the schools have tests so I can prove that my knowledge of the material is exceptional and my grades are low because of the competitive program...

They will look at your first year uni stuff as it is more recent
However all medical schools in the UK have an entrance exam- either the UKCAT or BMAT. The UKCAT is a more aptitude like test and the BMAT is a mixture of knowledge, essay writing and aptitude
