Published: 22 June 2020

We do consider applicants onto our standard 5-year MBChB (honours) who already hold an existing degree qualification or are in their final year of study and will graduate in the year of entry. The academic qualifications required are detailed below:

Degree Minimum of 2:1 in any subject; masters' degrees/doctorates not accepted in compensation for bachelor's degree below 2:1 (we are interested in ability to succeed at undergraduate study). The degree will have been completed within 5 years of application and gained at point of entry onto the course. 
A Level Minimum of BBB in required A levels (Biology or Chemistry plus another designated science subject [Biology, Chemistry, Physics, Maths/Further Maths/Statistics] and a third academic subject). Grade compensation is not permitted.
GCSE Maths, English Language and Sciences – double-award/ triple-award/combined (trilogy) or 3 separate – at a minimum of grade B/6; reformed English language GCSE in England must include pass in speaking and listening endorsement.
UCAT Must be within top 8 deciles of the cohort; SJT must be within bands 1-3.

Applicants not meeting the minimum A-level subjects/grades or Science GCSEs may be considered for Medicine if they have taken the GAMSAT prior to application (GAMSAT is offered twice a year, in March and September. GAMSAT results obtained from different sittings are directly comparable and can be used when applying to universities for up to two consecutive years);

Our minimum requirement is either(a) 55 overall with a minimum of 58 in section III or (b) 58 overall with a minimum of 55 in section III - no section score below 50 accepted.

Roles and Responsibilities form

Higher levels of engagement in paid/voluntary experience and responsibility expected than for school-leavers; no credit given for anything that is simply part of the applicant's job.
