Applying to Medical School
All applications to higher education in the UK are processed by the University and Colleges Admissions Service, commonly known as UCAS. You can access all you need to know regarding this process via their website, www.ucas.com and download information and forms.
UCAS normally starts accepting applications from early September and the deadline for all applications to medicine is 15th October. This is also the deadline for the following courses – dentistry, veterinary medicine as well as all courses at Oxford and Cambridge.
If you are applying to a medical school that requires the GAMSAT as part of its entry requirements then you will need to register for the exam prior to, and separately from, the medical school application. If you do not register in time you will not be able to apply to a school, which requires it.
This means that you will have finalised your medical school choices in advance of receiving the result, unless you have already taken it and have a valid result (that meets the cut-off score).
