Messed around by OU. Which is best degree for med school?Watch
They do not have rules on which degree gets you in to the graduate entry medicine course, just that you need a certain degree classification etc.
I was originally studying psychology but decided to change to health sciences. I called student support and they changed it without checking the modules. Low and behold, there are no places on one of the modules.
I don't want to wait until 10th Sept to find if I have a place on it (currently on waiting list for said module).
My only other option is to switch now to a STEM degree and focus on human biology, cell biology etc.
Which would be best for med school do you think?
May I be able to switch at the end of next year (just before my final year of the degree) to health sciences or will it affect my classification?
Sorry for the ramble, hope someone can help!
Some modules fill up fast and waitlists are produced, sometimes they can hire more tutors to increase the amount of people they can take into the module and sometimes there are people that drop out and make space, but often the course is at capacity and those on the waiting list don’t get on for that year.
If med school isn’t bothered by which degree you do then choose the one that interests you most and you think will be most useful going forward.
