Just got a 2:2 in biological sciences...
I literally just received my classification 12 hours ago, a 2:2 in biological sciences, I have a horrid feeling this may not be enough :-/ I had a brief look at what schools to go for and could only find 3, all of which require GAMSAT. I'm just wondering if theres any more and how much of a chance I have?
I did appallingly in my GCSE's and A levels, and granted my degree level is not quite what I wanted I was continuing work throughout the degree as a microbiology lab assistant other than that and that I'm old-ish (25) I don't think I have much on my side, how do I improve my chances?
Thankyou so much for reading my ramblings and any advice would be amazing

Well it's not the end of the world, GAMSAT is hard but certainly doable. You actually have more chance at the GAMSAT Unis than you do the others, less applicants per place as GAMSAT puts a lot of people off. However us poor sods with 2:2s haven't got any other choice!!
You're not old at all! 25 is spritely! Many people going into graduate courses are well into their 30s and even 40s. Age is not an issue.
Best thing you can do is do GAMSAT and get as much work experience as you can. Good luck!GEM 2014 Hopeful
GAMSAT March 2012 - Overall 53 - 55,67,45
GAMSAT September 2012 - Overall 56 - 64,62,48

As another option, KCL will consider you for the GPEP if you do a Master's and pass with at least a merit
