Greetings, what are some basic requirements for applying to a medical university for MBBS?Answered
I have to start my A-levels in september 2021. I wanted to enquire about the requirements after that.

Hi so if I remember correctly I believe MBBS is a Bachelor of Medicine, Bachelor of Surgery the requirements are:-
A level high school certificate with at least two science subjects: Biology, Physics, Chemistry, Maths, etc. It seems most of the time Chemistry is a must
Or, if you already graduated a Bachelors - an honours degree in science at 2:1 or above, or equivalent can be a good advantage
Good level of English, usually an IELTS 6.5 – 7.0, or equivalent TOEFL or C1 Advanced language certificates
GPA of 3.75 or higher, or equivalent
Evidence of sustained academic achievement – you’ll need a transcript of academic records for that
Depending on the country, you might also need a locally recognized specialized medical exam like the UCAT or BMAT, in the UK. Its equivalent for the U.S. is the MCAT exam
Voluntary work experience in Health Care is also a plus
Sometimes you might need to take a Foundation programme to validate or meet the MBBS programme requirements
The university is also interested to know if you have the transferable skills needed to be a future doctor.
Hope this helps Good Luck!!!
