BioMed to Med transfer?

Which unis provide biomedicine courses which grant you the opportunity to transfer to medicine after a year, that I could put as my fifth choice?

I would tell you to avoid transfer schemes, as they tie you to one uni, cost money and have a very low rate of success - but I think you think I am trying to put you off :lol:
So start here (but really, don't do it, if you do not get an offer and still want to do medicine, gap year and reapply)

Hahaha no it's fine, thanks for all the advice. I think I'll put one but realistically there's like a 0.0001 chance I'd actually take the offer (would rather take a gap year for sure)
