Medics' Programme

It is becoming increasingly difficult to obtain places at university for degree courses leading to Medicine, Veterinary Science and Dentistry. With graduates in these vocations almost certainly gaining employment competition is increasing year on year.

At Solihull extensive support is given to Sixth Form students applying for these subjects. This includes advice on:

  •  A Level choices
  • Selecting the right medical/dental/veterinary schools
  • UKCAT preparation (and advice on BMAT)
  • Writing personal statements
  • Gaining medically related work experience
  • Voluntary work placements
  • Oxbridge entry

While success cannot be guaranteed, over the last 10 years very few applicants who have gained the required A Level grades have failed to gain a place at university for these degree courses.

However it must be stressed that the most important person in ensuring success is the applicant. The first hurdle is an excellent set of GCSE grades.
