I have an undergraduate degree with a 2:2. I want to apply for a degree in medicine to start in 2021 but all of the graduate entry courses I’ve looked at need a 2:1. Can I apply for a normal undergraduate in Medicine with the degree I have? My A Levels aren’t great and wouldn’t be enough to get me into the degree but was just wondering if I could with a 2:2 undergraduate degree?

If you apply for undergraduate degree, you are competing against school leavers for majority of the unis so you will need to meet the course A-level requirements. Some universities will consider a lower requirement e.g. UCL A*AA standard is lowered to ABB for graduates applying for the undergraduate course, however, they will also stipulate a 2:1 minimum.

With a 2:2, you have some options but it is most likely you'll need to either do a masters (for grad med) or retake some A-levels (for undergrad med)

Grad med courses that accept a 2:2 are:
Nottingham 2:2 + GAMSAT
Swansea 2:2 + masters/PhD + GAMSAT
Warwick 2:2 + masters/PhD + UCAT

There are some undergrad medicine degrees that don’t consider a levels if you are a graduate but I think most of them ask for minimum of a 2.1 it’s worth checking out their entry requirements.
The ones I know of are Kent and Medway, Anglia Ruskin and UCLAN (but uclan only consider students in the north west)
