If you have achieved the minimum a level pred requirements for med and you do not exceed them, will you be disadvantaged as opposed to someone who has higher preds than you? (For internationals)

At most med schools - no it wouldn't.

Exeter is one of them. Where are you thinking of applying?

Note that some med schools have different entry requirements for local vs international students.

It's still too early for me but I have a couple in mind some of which are Newcastle, St Andrews, Glasgow, UEA and a few others.

Hi everyone,I am a Canadian student that is going into my 4th year of uni in Canada but will not be having a degree by the end of year due to a program change last year. I was interested in applying to the A100 course at oxford or cambridge, UCL, and ICL and I was wondering whether they would look at my university grades when considering me for admission? I have a lot of extracurricular and work experience too so I feel like I would have a good shot if they looked at university grades. I tried emailing a few of the schools but no one has gotten back to me.Thanks!!

If you don't have your university grades, what qualifications will you be offering?

Have you done A-Levels (or equivalent)?

I do have university grades from the past three years (equal to approximately a 3.91/4 on our scale) but I just won't have a bachelor's degree by the time of admission/matriculation. I also have my regular high school grades and diploma of course, with around a 94% average. Sorry for the confusion, I wasn't very clear!

Don't worry about that.

You will need to have graduated before the course start date for it to be valid - individual yearly performance wouldn't count I'm afraid. It's usually the overall classification (1st class, 2:1, 2:2 etc.) that the university would want.

I think unless you are apply to start after you have got your degree, you'd have to use your high school grades. It sounds like a high score, 94% - so check with the universities for their requirement.

:goodluck:

The university of Brighton does accept directly but I don't think there are many at all. Most need UCAS as that is the main platform for all students to get fair acceptance and its used by everyone.

As you said, it's only UCLan, Brunel, Buckingham and maybe Northumbria (the latter is designed for international students wanting to practise in the US). Every other med school will expect an application via UCAS.

No, widening participation is made for home students only - to enable more local students who are disadvantaged to do medicine. It wouldn't be fair to make this available to international students.

Depends on your BMAT but international med admissions to UK universities is certainly much much more competitive than local students.
