This might be one for the GEM 2021 thread: https://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/sho...1#post89268612

AFAIK, you don't have to apply to A100 to apply to A101, and A101 is typically more competitive (fewer spaces etc).

ecolier and/or TheGraduateMedic can probably advise more/correct me if I'm wrong!

King's a101 is not grad entry, it's their 6-year foundation course.

To OP, afaik:
- no, you Don't have to apply to both
- yes, if you do it will count as 2 spots out of your 4
- probably, A101 will be more competitive (but I Don't know for sure as less people will meet the criteria - some focussed googling could prob tell you the answer)

Oh no, I’m an idiot, sorry! I’m used to A101 as the grad entry code!
Apologies again - you may still want to see if there’s a thread for it, though, OP?

Afraid I'm a GEM person and Don't know anything about it - but I think there's a foundation courses group somewhere, try asking in there.

It's still early in the application cycle. Last year the threads weren't even made until 30th June!

gcses: one 9, seven 8s, one 7, one 6
dk predictions yet but likely to be: A*AB (maybe A*AA)

extra curricular: no work ex in hospital/care home etc but did volunteering at library for OAPs coffee morning, etc. Also done online work ex. Piano grade 3 but stopped taking ABRSM grades 2 years back, netball for 5+ years competitively and set up skl sixth form team, senior prefect (set up skl Instagram account), helped w some dementia care home project, made my own medical insta thing which is kinda successful, worked on an international project -European Connect for 8 weeks, brilliant club project, helped to make medical club @ school and did bake sales, etc to raise money for BHF, and i think that's what i can remember. there are other bits and stuff but that's most of it (also i kn you asked for extra curricular but i may have added some extra stuff...oops)

apologies if that isn't in a clear format!!

Will doing 4 A levels lead to an instant rejection? My school won’t let me drop a subject *sigh. Looking at past stats, nobody applied with 4 subjects so I’m not sure.

Gcses - 998887765
Predictions - probably A*AAA.

I used to attend the kcl medicine and dentistry lecture series and they said that you have to be eligible to apply to the EMDP course, and if i am not wrong they are, being a part of their k+ programmes or being from a certain area.

Did they apply for the 6 year programme (emdp) or 5 year? And we’re their grades all As / A*s?

@ecoiler I got a notification from EMDP 2020 entry and was redirected here... did the thread get deleted? I wanted to stick around till results day to see how it went for the rest of them, since I'm not necessarily in direct contact with a lot of people on the course, despite talking to them on TSR
