How will I be assessed?
You will be assessed by exam for Maths and English, and by a combination of exam and practical work for Biology and Chemistry.
Entry to Medicine is competitive and whilst students who are predicted to achieve the required grades are guaranteed an interview at UCLan and RCSI, there is no guarantee of acceptance onto the course. Students must have met all pre-requisites to be considered for Medicine at our partner universities.
In 2021 a significant proportion of ONCAMPUS UK North students progressed to 5 year Medicine degrees at our partner universities. Click on the flyer below to take a look at this year's student progression.
