    hi all, i have to start applying for courses on my ucas now and i really have no idea what i want to do! i've always wanted to do medicine but dont think i can get in uni's with the AAB without resitting and i heard uni's dont really consider resits..
    so i was wondering whether taking the Biomedical science tranfer route is worth a try, does anyone know what the chances are of being transffered on medicine/dentistry from biomedical science? or any alternative routes of gettin into medicine?!

    You can resit individual modules, and some unis will allow you to resit the year provided you achieve AAA. Graduate entry medicine is incredibly competitive, and obviously more expensive too.

    I'm an AAB (Shocking on TSR aint it :P)
    Got into Medicine though

    Trust me, graduate entry is so much harder, approximately 48 to 1 competition for places.

    Don't give up so easily. Are you saying that you won't achieve the AAB without doing resits?

    Which is why a large number of graduates end up on the 5 year undergrad programme.

    Apply for medicine anyway, make four of your UCAS choices medicine at unis that will take your predicted AAB and make your final choice biomedical science.

    Some places let you transfer from their biomedical science degree onto medicine (St. George's comes to mind) but be advised this is risky as of course there is no guarantee you'll transfer, and it's very often the case that out of a yeargroup of biomeds, only about the top 10% or so will even be given the chance to have an interview!

    You'll be better off applying to medical schools that accept resitters first, then trying the biomed/graduate entry route.
