Get into Medical School for Undergraduates UK 2018-2019
Now in its 7th Edition, the MSAG Undergraduate Entry Medicine book has been a trusted reference for graduate entry Medicine for both applicants and career advisers alike for the best part of a decade. Tailored by Dr Dibah Jiva, who has nine years’ experience in medical school admissions consulting, is the most comprehensive guidebook in the UK. It includes reference tables for all 31 UK medical schools that are open to undergraduate applicants.
- How to decide if Medicine is really for you
- How to make a strong application that stands out in the crowd
- Advice on building your extracurricular portfolio
- What resources are available for the standard tests e.g. UKCAT, BMAT
- How to plan and write your personal statement
- How to ace your interviews
This guidebook has been written by contacting every single medical school either my email, telephone or personal visit. It includes unique sections for undergraduate applicants to help you understand how A level subjects (IB or other alternative qualifications) and grades are viewed by different medical schools; the course structure of each programme; the competition ratio of each programme (i.e. how many candidates apply, how many get to interview stage and how many receive offers); as well as the university rankings. For reference, we have created a mini-chapter for each medical school to give you details on its competition ratios, rankings, academic and non-academic requirements, eligibility factors such as Access to Medicine courses, Widening Participation schemes, considerations for international applicants and details on the selection process and formula to select applicants pre- and post-interviews. This guidebook has over 30 collaborators from all UK medical schools and we invite you to read regular updates on our blog http://themsag.com/blog.html for continuous help in your application process.
