A-Level Medicine Bundle

If you’re thinking of studying medicine at university, it’s vital you make sure you have the right qualifications to be accepted. Medical degrees are notoriously hard to get places on, regardless of if you are trying to to get offered a place at Oxford or Cambridge, competition for places is fierce and you need to ensure you are fully prepared.

There are several factors that make studying medicine harder than doing other degrees. Aside from the length of the degrees (medical degrees are at least six years in length), the entry steps and requirements are also harder.

Firstly, you need to get your UCAS application in earlier than the standard deadlines. So if you’re looking at studying medicine at university, you only have until October to complete your personal statement and get your application in to be considered. The deadline for other UCAS applications is months later in January.

Secondly, instead of the usual three A-Levels, you will need four A-Levels at grade A or above to be offered a place on most medical degrees. Of which, three of the A-Level subjects have to be the three sciences, Biology, Chemistry and Physics.

Lastly, you will need to have several GCSEs (or equivalent) at good grades to be considered for a place at university on a medical degree. If all of the above hasn’t put you off your dream of becoming a Doctor or studying medicine, then your options for studying A-Levels is actually quite straightforward in comparison!

Your A-Level courses can be studied in whichever way best suits you and your commitments. You have the option of studying online or at school or college. Some students find themselves doing a combination of both, as some schools and colleges limit the number of A-Levels they will allow their students to study.

What if I want to study Medicine but got bad A-Level Results?

Believe it or not, getting bad A-Level results isn’t the be all and end all of whether you can study medicine at university. It just means you will have to look at your options and be a bit more creative with how you get the needed grades.

First, you need to look at the results you got, if you got grade As in some subjects but not all, then you can look at re-sitting or retaking just those subjects and then apply through UCAS for studying medicine. If you didn’t achieve any of the grades you needed, then again, you can enrol onto online A-Levels and give yourself another go at getting what you need.

Even if you haven’t studied GCSEs or A-Levels in years, your chance of studying medicine is still not off the table, provided you have the grades and your UCAS application and personal statement is what the university is looking for, then there’s no reason why you can’t go on and study medicine.
