Graduate Entry Medicine UK 2018-2019
Now in its 8th Edition, the MSAG Graduate 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 covers Graduate Entry Programmes (4-year programmes), as well as all 5-year and 6-year programmes to which graduates are eligible to apply.
- The process of getting into medical school
- What to consider when choosing to pursue a medical career
- How to decide if Medicine is really for you
- Insights into making a strong application that stands out in the crowd and much more.
- Advice on building your extracurricular portfolio
- What resources are available for the standard tests e.g. UKCAT, BMAT, GAMSAT

We include unique sections for graduate applicants to help you understand which undergraduate subjects are considered more favourably by different medical schools; which medical schools consider A levels and GCSEs for graduate applicants and which don’t; 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, 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.
