As far as I am aware there are no 'guaranteed offers' but a few uni's can guarantee an interview if completing say Biomed/medical sciences BSc with them and going straight onto their medicine course (if meeting things like 1st class degree) - this is the case with the University of Exeter. I realise this may not be useful to you depending on your stage and age, but is one idea.

Get your head out of the clouds.
Ther is nothing that guarantees an offer.

There are things that you can do which in some circumstances may guarantee an interview.

This includes extra courses or schemes which may be targeted at widening participation in an area local to the med school. Or the UKWPMED scheme. But your eligibility for these very much depends on your home circumstances, where you live (your Polar 4 area) your schools status ie selective, struggling, poorly performing etc. And other factors like first to uni in family, care experienced etc.

But each scheme is different and the requirement will differ.

Equally each med school will take account of widening participation factors differently too.

So know yourself.

If you are eligible for the UCAT bursary make sure you apply.


If you come from a selective school or do not have any widening participation / contextual flags then there are not likely to be any access / support schemes available to you.
