Graduate entry medicine
Hi everybody, Well as far as I know the requirement is a 2.i degree and a possible 700+ ukcat would be ideal. However does any1 know what proportion of grad applicants apply with a 2.i and what proportion with a 1st? As i would have thought they wus prefer to offer places to those with Firsts. Also how many grad applicant Oxford take on per year? And I was under the impression that a-level grades weren't taken into account but i have recently been told otherwise.
The reason I ask is because my lecturers reckon no one from my university would stand a chance at getting into oxford even with a 2.i.
So if any1 could help?Live in the world but don't let the world live in you

"We accept that some excellent students are "late developers", and so we will not insist on excellent A-levels or an outstanding first degree result (though we would normally expect two science A-levels and a 2:i or better, or a GPA above 3.5)"

I am fairly certain that usually, approximately 1/3 of the class graduated with a 2.i. But this needs serious verification.

It might be a little tenuous if I label myself as a "first year" so let's stick with a "soon to be first year". :P October. Not too far away now!!
I joined the forum just to see if medicine may be something I want to look into later on. (Currently standing at the fork where both medical research and clinical medicine appear to be equally appealing). *waiting to be inspired*
Are you planning to apply for GEP programs this coming cycle?
