Are you talking a mid degree transfer, or going for GEP after the Bio Med degree?
If you mean the latter, I know people do make the transfer. I'm starting with a few ex Bio'meds this year.
However there isn't any preference/benefit given to these candidates. So the only benefit in this case is that fact, you might have more confidence in the interview and be more "in the zone" in terms of thought processes, enabling you to perform better at interview.
Concerning a mid course transfer, I've not heard of such a thing, but that doesn't mean that it won't exist. However, I'm not sure how that could fit in with the syllabus/course structure.

I think your questions pretty well answered in the thread dude. No its not hard, just requires motivation.

Anything is possible if you are willing to put in the time and effort. Don't let anyone tell you what you can and can't do, as long as the transfer option is there you have every chance. Having said that it's all about reasonable and assessing your options, if you have the a-level grades and everything and you want to do the biomed programme even though the likelihood of you attaining an offer through the standard 5 year route is greater just because you don't want to take a gap year or something. Thats being silly.

Find out when you arrive, you wont need anybooks for a few weeks and to be honest most are available second hand in the school school on the cheap. Put it this way I went in on a book buying frenzy and most are mint condition still! Rang dale and ritter, anatomy colouring in, and a physiology book are pretty much all you may use. But its all online nowadays.
