1st year! It isn't a foundation program.
Hi,

Sorry, are you sure, as I thought we joint first year in yr 2 so in theory emdp is a foundation course isn't it?

Hey, yep I'm sure. The first year is just split over 2 years but we do go straight into the standard course- no foundation program. I applied last year and we had to put 1st year!

Hi guys, I’m wondering if I stand a good chance of interview. I come from a below average state college and secondary school. Low household income, ucat bursary and poor area progression to higher education. My stats are GCSE’s meets criteria, 6 A levels all achieved at A*’s and a ucat of 2370 B2, bad stomach ache during the exam. I’m currently on a gap year, any guidance would be very much appreciated. Thank you.
6 A levels at A*? Not sure if you're telling the truth but if so then why not do the BMAT or apply to QMUL/Barts which put a 50-50 weighting on UCAT score and A level grades.

I chose not to do the BMAT. I’m applying with mitigating circumstances for my GCSEs that’s all. Options are; Southampton BM6, Plymouth, Exeter (contextual) and KCL EDMP

Okay I’ll research into QMUL and Barts tonight, thank you. + I really am passionate about KCL EDMP everything about the course is perfect for me, in particular the longer degree time and the slower transition. As I am already nervous to move to another city,

Same I actually feel the same about emdp and the bm6 courses. They're both my choices...even though I've not done as great as others in the ucat...I still applied anyways and decided to give it a shot! Sk hopefully it goes well. Dont let others put you down and do what you feel happy and confident in doing. All the best to you!

Same that's what i thought..I guess they don't put that much weight on the ucat as they do on PS and academics.

They can check from your UCAS details that will show your secondary school, sixth form/college and your postcode.

Not sure where you got the information as It states the following on the website:
- You must have sat the UCAT prior to submitting your application.
‘When considering applicants which will be shortlisted for interview we consider the following; GCSE (or equivalent performance), predicted or achieved A-level grades (or equivalent), the personal statement, the reference and the score in the UCAT. These contribute to the shortlisting of applicants, and we do assess for this programme holistically, taking in to account all these factors and your performance in the context of your educational background. Examination results and the UCAT score are perhaps the most important factors when considering applications. These are highlighted as they provide us with the fairest and most consistent method of assessing applicants.’

Hi everyone,
Good luck to all those applying this year..
I have yet to sit my UCAT in the next 2 weeks...anyone know how much weighting the UCAT is given- I feel like it's the one thing that might let me down. Also, for those who've done their UCAT and are thinking of applying for EMDP..what are you're UCAT and GCSE stats, if you don't mind me asking. Any help would be appreciated!!
hi im looking to apply also this year! my stats are GCSEs: 3 9s, 3 8s, 1 A (Cida ICT), 2 6s, UCAT: 2840 B2

Mate, you have a pretty good chance at applying the normal A100 Medicine, as EMDP is more competitive. What's your A Levels?
