I'm in going into my second year of Biomedical Science. I was wondering if it was possible to do postgradmedicine? Will they care about your a-levels more or your degree? Say I got a first class in my degree, but didn't take science A-levels...

I did non-science subjects for my A-level (one arts and the other social science). I did, however take BTEC science.

There are several graduate entry medicine programmes that do not look at your A-Levels at all, and only care that you have a 2:1 (sometimes 2:2) degree in any subject. Instead, they usually require you to take an entrance exam (UCAT/GAMSAT). They will be more interested in what you've gained from healthcare based work experience, so if you're considering graduate entry you should go about sorting some hands on care experience.

I had arts and humanities A-Levels and a humanities degree, and am currently just going into my second year on Nottingham's graduate entry medicine programme.
