Medicine admission

Hi all
Does anyone know any medical schools in the UK that don't require admission tests as of late (whether it be graduate or undergraduate course)
Also, will anyone advise on which university will be the "easiest" to apply to, in terms of getting an offer, especially for a graduate

Thanks

The only university in the UK that doesn't require any admissions test is the University of Buckingham, which is a private university that costs home students around £40,000 a year in tuition fees. No medical school will be 'easy' to get into. It really depends on your application as a whole. If you think your qualifications are a weaker point for you, you'd benefit from applying to universities that, for example, have lower GCSE and A level requirements (or the international equivalent). If you're stats are good but you're personal statement may not have been as strong, it may be better to apply to medical schools who weight your academic achievements more significantly.

For graduates. Would you know or recommend any universities that focus more on the academic qualifications instead of the ucat and personal statement
