I've applied earlier to the above course without realising I'm not eligible...will I still have the chance to be considered or will I be rejected immediately after seeing my application- and that I'm not eligible. I can't change my choice since it's already been submitted to the university of Bristol. If not there is probably nothing I can do but if I can have guidance on maybe what to do next for that option.

You will be considered... and then you'd be rejected I'm afraid. Make sure (if you do have to apply again, hopefully not!) that you have double and triple checked eligibility and entry requirements!

Also, for further questions post in the dedicated Bristol A108 2022 entry thread: https://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/sho....php?t=7109178

For future reference, there is a thread for each UK med school and their course, here is the index: https://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/sho....php?t=6962492

Never ever do a degree with the sole aim for graduate entry medicine. It will take longer, cost more and (most importantly) will be much, much more competitive.

Transfer schemes are even worse than GEM because it's even more competitive, and you are limited to that one med school.

Just take a gap year and reapply, it's not the end of the world.

Have you looked at Physician Associate?

It's similar to working as a junior doctor, and there are 2 undergrad courses to become a PA.

As long as you realise that if you ended up doing another degree, you'd statistically be unlikely to be able to study medicine - then you are making an informed decision and that's OK!

i have looked into physician associate however it did not appeal to me as much...it did take me a while to confirm my decision but i don't think i'll stray too far from the medical field- maybe be a clinical technician and work with blood samples or cancer research so that in someway im still helping people which was my main inspiration into becoming a doctor

Just be aware that securing these jobs is difficult because they’re very competitive. You’ll be applying for a long time and will probably have to settle for other jobs first and work your way up.
