You can only apply for graduate entry medicine when you are in final year.

To my knowledge, no uni has specified that you must finish your course before applying. As long as you’ve sat the UCAT in final year before submitting your application your fine! I think the reason it’s final year and beyond is so you can supply the universities with your predicted grades and they can make you a subsequent offer for interview etc.

Some unis give you a predicted grade some don’t it all depends on your course.

My course in year 1 was worth 0%
Year 2 was 30% and year 3 70%. Because we had so much to do in final year, I had to submit my own predicted grade and I just said I would be getting a 2:1 because that was how I usually did in my coursework.

Some course will be able to supply predicted though. Not sure how your uni works but on our university website we have a homepage that had calculators on to work out our degree level. You would put all your grades in to the spreadsheet and it would give you a predicted grade.

Tbh I don’t think the unis actually check your predicted grades until you have gave them you UCAT mark. Most unis will use the UCAT first to select candidates and then look at predicted grades and so on.

Good luck applying 😉
