Kings College London - 2:2 Grad Entry Medicine

I'm hoping to study GEM medicine and was wondering will Kings accept my BSc (Hons) 2:2?

If not, what universities accept a 2:2 for undergrad degree?
Or, should I take a MSc to bump my 2:2?

Any comments will help.

Hi,

Apart from Nottingham, do you know any other GEM routes that will accept a 2:2??

I've heard St Georges, University of London accepts a 2:2 with a masters (pass).

Yes, several will with a masters. SGUL, Swansea, Warwick, Chester, I think Worcester. Just check out their websites.
Exeter and Plymouth A100 do not look at degrees at all, but there are funding issues for standard entry to think about

Hi,

What about Queen Mary, University of London? Will they accept me with a 2:2, or even with an additional masters MSc??

You need to have a trawl through uni websites

No, Barts will not accept a 2:2

Hi,

I'm assuming that if I apply to Medicine 5 year course, things such as my GCSE, A-Levels will be taken into account, even if I have a degree, or could they be waived, if I have a masters to boost me etc?

Thanks for the replies & help!1

A100 would mean you had to pay tuition fees.
Med schools vary in how they shortlist but most need a 2:1 as minimum requirement for grads and many have A level requirements,too. They then shortlist using UCAT, GCSEs and/or A levels. They will not waive things if it is in their assessment criteria, which is almost always on their website.
Barts need a 2:1 for A100 and shortlist using degree classification and UCAT
