Medicine (MBBS) undergraduate entry

This course is for you if you have completed your A Levels or equivalent within the last five years and do not have, or have never started, another degree.

GCSEs
We require an average of an A grade across your top eight scoring GCSEs. So, for example, if you got an A*, six As and a B, then that is fine. But this must include English Language at grade B as well as Maths and double or triple Science.

UKCAT
We require a score of 500 in each section as well as an overall cut-off score met. The cut-off score for each year is calculated in November after the application deadline so we can't give you a sneak preview of what it will be for your application. Previous year's UKCAT cut-off scores are outlined on our entry criteria page, which gives you a rough idea of what it could be. Don't worry about the Situational Judgement Test, we don't look at that.

A Levels
We need AAA predicted grades at A Level, including Chemistry and Biology. We accept any A Level as the third subject (general studies deosn't count) and don't favour one above another. Achieving A*AB would not even out to meet our requirements; we need at least an A in each subject. Last point on A Levels, we do not look at AS grades, only predicted grades.

A Level equivalent
We do accept certain qualifications in lieu of A Levels but not BTECs or foundation years. We accept the International Baccalaureate and Access to Medicine diploma among others. For a full list of what we consider check out our entry criteria page.

Work experience
This should be in a medical or healthcare environment, involve patient interaction and have been undertaken within the last two years. More information is included on our entry criteria page.

Medicine (MBBS), four-year option for graduates

This degree is for you if you have already got a university degree and would like to retrain into medicine. You will graduate with the same MBBS qualification as you would on our five-year degree; it is simply structured to take into account the knowledge you have as graduate.

Degree requirements
We require a 2.1 or higher in an undergraduate degree from any discipline, or a pass mark or higher in a postgraduate degree. So, if you’ve achieved a 2.2 in your undergraduate degree and a pass mark in your postgraduate degree you’re fine.

GAMSAT
We also need a score of 50 in each section of the GAMSAT as well as an overall cut-off score met. We calculate each year’s cut-off score after we’ve received all applications so we don’t know what it will be for next year yet. The previous year’s cut-off scores are on our entry criteria page.

Work experience
This should be in a medical or healthcare environment, involve patient interaction and have been undertaken within the last two years. More information is included on our entry criteria page.

Don’t forget

More detailed information about entry requirements can be found in our study section. To apply to us you must submit your application via UCAS by Sunday 15 October at 6pm.

Our institution code at St George’s is S49 and the course code A100 (or A101 for our graduate applicants).

What happens next?

If your application is successful, you will be invited to a multi-mini interview. More information is available on how to apply page.
