Hi!

Only a handful of medical schools will lower your offer if you get a good grade in EPQ. I remember reading that HYMS, Lancaster, Sheffield and Queen's University Belfast are the ones that do this. You will also have to firm them I believe in order to qualify for the lower offer.

Hope this helps! ecolier can correct me if I've missed something

QUB would lower their offer slightly but not to AAB I think.

https://www.qub.ac.uk/courses/underg...mb-a100/#entry

AAA at A-level + A in a fourth AS-level subject including A-level Chemistry plus at least one other A-level from Biology/Human Biology, Mathematics or Physics. If not offered at A-level then Biology/Human Biology grade A as a 4th AS-level or grade B as a 5th AS-level. Grade A in the EPQ or Advanced Welsh Baccalaureate or a grade B in a 4th A-level will be acceptable in lieu of the 4th AS-level.

OR

A*AA at A-level including Chemistry and Biology/Human Biology.

OR

A*AA at A-level including Chemistry and either Mathematics or Physics + AS-level Biology grade B.
