I would like to do medicine in KCL but I don’t have time right GCSES for right so is it possible that I do another course there and when U complete that course, despite me not having the correct GCSES will I be allowed once I have the degree?

So If i take a biomedical science degree, will I be allowed to then take medicine without havering the right GCSES? thanks

Why would you want to be at university for 9 years? Can you not just pay someone to tutor you in the G.C.S.E. subjects you're short on or look into F.E. colleges' G.C.S.E. programmes and do those exams then apply to K.C.L. next year?

9 years? really? And yeah I don’t want to do that that’s why i’m asking. I don’t really understand how the website works and it’s not easy to email them.

P.S. I would serious advise you not to do a degree with the sole aim to do Graduate Entry Medicine. It'll take longer, cost more and be much more competitive than taking a gap year to improve your stats and reapply to standard undergrad medicine. Even 2 gap years if you must.

Doing a degree and then applying for GEM is just delaying the much harder competitive to three years' time. By then you may well have to take a gap year(s) anyway because GEM is so competitive and it's not uncommon for people not to have any offers.

P.S. Limited yourself to one medical school is also unwise.

Thank you. I applied for other schools KCL is an unlikely option for me but I’m just choosing it as another option. I have applied to others and it’s unlikely I will go here anyway. So in every case it’s not a good idea to do a degree just for medicine or just in KCL?

Just for Medicine... all GEM courses are much more competitive than the equivalent standard undergrad medicine courses.
