Hello , I am currently entering my second year in Biomed at Uni of Kent. I would like to know if it is possible to apply to med school now , for entry in the next year. If yes, how could I do it? Can I apply for another course while still being in uni ? if I don't get into medicine, will I still be on my biomed course? When is the deadline?
Thank you !
****EDIT***** Thanks to anyone who kindly answered. I just realised it was a really stupid question lol, I wish I could delete it but I can't . Thanks again for all your answers!!

I take it you mean you are currently just about to enter 2nd year, hence your biomed degree is due to run from 2018/19 year to 2020/21 year and you'll graduate in 2021.

The earliest you can apply to GEM will be the year before you are due to graduate (i.e. October 2020 for 2021 entry), unless you are applying to undergrad medicine (for 2020, then you'll need to apply in October 2019) with your A-Levels and GCSEs and meet those requirements.

Otherwise, how are you going to get your degree (hence satisfying the basic requirement of entering GEM - i.e. having a degree, being a gradaute)?

If you are thinking about dropping out of your current degree to compete with (mostly) A-Level students joining undergrad medicine in 2020, you'll need to let your current Uni know that you may drop out before graduation.

Applying for graduate entry medicine is normally done at the end of second year/beginning of 3rd year from a biomed degree. This then means that the summer after your second year should be used to do UCAT if you’re gonna apply for UCAT, prepare for BMAT if you’re gonna do that, find work experience and volunteering as well as preparing your personal statement. You would apply by the 15th October 2020 for 2021 entry. So you’d graduate biomed and do medicine if you get a high 2:1 or first in your degree (mostly). All the best and hope that helps

Assume you mean Graduate Entry Medicine? Postgrad medicine is applied for by people who have completed a medical degree already. GEM is still an undergraduate course

You won’t be accepted to GEM if you aren’t in final year of your degree, or you’ve already graduated.
