Postgraduate Medicine entry with a 2.2 and MastersWatch
I graduated a couple of years ago with a 2.2 in Biomedical sciences, studied a masters and managed to achieve a decent Distinction. I applied for postgrad medicine while studying for my masters ( KCL, SGUL, Notts and Swansea) and received 4 rejections due to a low GAMSAT/UKCAT score. I was wondering if anyone could provide me with any advice on how likely I am to get into UK medical schools if I apply again?
Does anyone know if students with 2.2 and masters have ever been accepted into KCL? ( I know they apply, but not sure if they are successful as competition is high)
Finally, If I apply to study at a European university this summer and accept, will this affect my application to the UK?
king college London dont accept 2:2 with a masters anyways, check their website they changed their entry requirements and made a 2:1 minimum
When considering those students which will be shortlisted for interview the selectors consider the following; predicted or achieved 2.1 (or equivalent) in a Biosciences degree
I think you should focus in your admission exams as youve pretty much got the grades for gamsat universities and Warwick.
All the best!
You have to get good admission test scores and have work exp in a hospital env for some
my sister got into notts with only a 2:2 and 59 gamsat but she worked as a HCA for about 6 months or so prior to interview. Nots was her only shot and was very work exp heavy so it went ok in the end
with a masters as well it opens up a few more unjs so you should be fine in that regard, just have to do well in those tests and get good exp
It's definitely possible - so don't give up!
