(No offence to anyone, I post this every time I see it) In proper English, it's not give an exam. In South Asian languages "give" may be the correct verb, but it's take, sit or do an exam in English. Whether in the UK or in Australia, people may be confused if they hear that you're "giving" the test, because it sounds like you're composing the questions or administering it as a examiner.

Yep!! I’ve been corrected far too many times by my Biology teacher - alas, force of habit.

It really bothers me cause I’m usually more pedantic about these things, but I fail to realise when I do it myself

Well I don't know about UK requirements but you can apply in europe/elsewhere just by doing biology and chemistry. Might be worth looking into

Hi Yes, most of the UK Medical School accept CBSE grade 12th as Entry Requirement. However, pls check on the website for Cambridge, Imperial, UCL & Oxford. I'm not sure about these Med. School. Kings would require 90% overall in CBSE 12th , whereas other Medical School require 85% in Grade 12th as minimum entry requirement. PCB & IP subjects should meet the requirement if these Med.School. Prepare for UCAT & try to score above 95 percentile to receive an interview offer from Kings as an international applicant & SJT Band 1, although year 2021 was highly competitive year applicant with 94 percentile SJT 2 couldn't get an interview offer from Kings.

Hi!

A couple of things; firstly, different unis have different requirements. Some will require an overall average across your three relevant subjects, or an average across all five subjects. Other times, unis will require specific grades in each subject (ex. 95% in Chemistry, 90% in Biology, 90% in third subject). Hence this is very much uni dependent and so you should always check with the uni before you apply.

Secondly, fee status is again a little more complex because British citizenship alone does not grant you fee status as home. I believe you need to be ordinarily residing for the three years preceding your year of entry.

Now for the unis you have mentioned:

Keele:
https://www.keele.ac.uk/medicine/und...orentry/#india

Anglia Ruskin: Contact Admissions to see requirements

St George’s: 90% overall and in Bio / Chem
https://www.sgul.ac.uk/study/life-at...qualifications

King’s College: 90% overall

Go to each university’s website and scroll down to entry requirements, and then click on international qualifications. There usually is a drop down / list and if you choose India they will often tell you the required entry requirements.

Lastly, don’t restrict yourself to med schools this early. A lot of it would depend on your UCAT score and your performance in Grade 10.

I can confirm that Oxbridge & Imperial accept CBSE, however for Medicine it appears UCL does not.

For all internationals interested in UCL Medicine... I believe you have to either be taking the IB or international A levels/UK qualifications, HKDSE, pretty much no exceptions the last time I checked.

It’s weird because they accept alternative qualifications for almost all other courses but medicine.

That is true! And all other universities, even Oxbridge Medicine accept more qualifications than UCL! Kinda odd how I could apply to Oxbridge medicine but not to UCL?

Well Oxbridge isn't the benchmark for med schools, they look for different things to other universities and it's not unusual to hear of students getting 3 rejections and an offer from Oxford or Cambridge.

UCL is known for picking students slightly differently as well, so again it's not surprise there.

It's just odd that they would accept less qualifications, and also UCL is odd in the sense that I'm pretty sure its the only one that reads more about like PS, GCSE in arts, etc than other medical schools.

Also, I didn't meant for Oxbridge as a benchmark, more as in their requirements for things are generally higher (eg. requiring A*A*A), and not accepting many types of qualifications alone, so it is quite odd that UCL is stricter than Oxbridge in the qualifications regard.

Again I would disagree with this, Cambridge, for example, is one of the least GCSE heavy med schools. And its' competition ratio is also not high (relative to other med schools).
