I think the only option for me is to apply as a graduate. I am not sure which degree will be best to do as the undergraduate degree?

I am thinking about the following:

Philosophy
Medical Physiology
Biomedical Sciences
Pharmacology

Thanks

There is no best or worst degree. The one that opens the most doors will be Biomedical Sciences, and a lot of GEM students will have studied that.

I am sure I have linked this to your threads before, but read https://www.medschools.ac.uk/media/2...al-schools.pdf (page 50 onwards) for the requirements of GEM. As long as you meet it - it's fine.

Thank you ecolier,

You have shown me that link before but I had lost it, so thank you for posting that again

What worries me is the fact A-levels are required for most of the universities, so seeing as Medicine is getting more and more competitive I am worried that when I get to that stage all of the universities will have requirements I cannot meet.

Do you think this is likely?

I can't predict the future, however there are a lot of other things that medical schools use to select candidates including the admission tests / interviews. It is likely that some medical schools will remain not using A-Levels / GCSEs while others may change.

:goodluck:
