There is a huge demand for UK Medical Schools, Dental Schools and Veterinary Colleges. Less than half of applicants succeed and AAA grades at A Level including Chemistry and Biology (or equivalent in the IB or Pre-U) are almost mandatory just to get to the first screening stage. Then there is the personal statement, references, work experience, special admissions tests and an interview. It is therefore crucial for parents to choose private senior schools or sixth form colleges which will not only help your child achieve exam success but also thoroughly prepare him or her for all the other requirements.
Some schools have great success with medical applicants and others may only send the odd student every few years. You must not leave this to chance – the right school will optimise your child's chances of a medical degree offer.
A number of private sixth-form colleges have specialist Medic Programmes which, inter alia, can coach students for GMAT and UKCAT tests and also facilitate work experience placements at local hospitals.
We are pleased to offer a comprehensive eGuide with information about Getting into University Medical or Dental School or Veterinary College.

Having stated that all students need AAA grades, there are actually other routes into medicine which can help candidates with grades at levels to BBC. These involve a Pre-Med Course or Foundation for one year, which then leads into Medical Schools in the UK and EU or other International Centres. Additionally, after the first year of these courses, you can be accepted into the second year of a Medical School degree.
