The most important thing is what you want to do. With only 2 Cs at A level, it would be impossible to study medicine in the UK unless you resat your A levels, and many universities will want at least 3 A levels for most courses (not just medicine).

I have no idea - this is a UK-based forum, so you might not get many responses from actual Nicosia students. I'll move this thread to the Medicine forum, to see if you can get more specific advice.

You can only run through the options , weigh up the pros and cons, then make your choice.

Biomed transfer.
Grad med.
Resit.
Foreign medical school.

Perhaps find some students who have studied there.


Sorry just misread and they have accepted you with 1x AS and 2x grade C A levels.
If you dont think you can resit and can afford the course, then Cyprus seems more viable.
Question is do you think you can up your grades?

graduate entry medicine is by far tougher than undergraduate medicine. I would suggest trying out the university because they accepted you and if you don’t like it - drop out maybe? take a gap year to build up on any experiences or retake any exams that need being done to apply to medical schools in London which require usually ABB minimum at A Levels (some lower). Take a look at St Georges, University of London it’s entry requirements are low.

All UK med schools bar one currently require AAA minimum at A level unless you are a contextual applicant. SGUL require AAA.
Most UK med schools will not accept somebody who has already started a medical degree elsewhere

I live in Nicosia and a quick tip I have for you is that unfortunately, the universities here are just really bad and if you have the opportunity I highly suggest you go somewhere else.

I completely understand where you are coming from. However, your experience does not mean the University or the town in general is bad.

I have been here for 4 years. The university/people/facilities are all amazing.

Also, the northern side is very different to the southern side - different experiences.

Awesome, thanks for the tip. Hope I get in. Will classes take place this fall or will you have to work remotely due to corona?

can anybody who studies the MD6 programme at Nicosia fact check this, please? It is an established university, and I am not sure it would be as bad as you say.

Hello, Current 5th year student in the MD6 Nicisoa program. I don't agree with anything GoKeys has stated. He has mentioned the north to be specific and i do not know about the north border situation, but i can speak about University of NIcosia. It is an established university, with the first cohort who graduated last year working as doctors in the UK mainly. The current 6th years are getting ready to apply for their jobs. In my opinion, it is like any other university. It has its flaws just like every other uni. I also studied 3 years in the UK, so i have a good basis to compare it to a 'well established British' university Don't hesitate to ask any specific questions
