    Age Issues

    Advertisements



    I am 18 years old and I am thinking about applying to the 5 yr med course, which consists of 1 yr premed and 4 yrs med. I have noticed that the average entering age for this program is about 24-25, so I was wondering how many 18-20 year olds enrol in the same program? Also, can anyone tell me about their experience at sgu, how easy is it to 'fit in'?

    Are you sure that's right? Shouldn't you be doing entire premed (3 years I think) and then Med? Are you just finishing high school?

    Not unless *** has done A-levels, he will just do 3.1 and 3.2. Yeah there are plenty your age, and at least for you, you will have the same people from premed in med, so you will know 20-30 people automatically. Go for it, the premed really helps you later in med and integration with 25-30yr olds+ isnt as difficult as it seems, after all we're all in the same boat.

    I thought that you have to do total under grad at sgu, can you just take the premed courses if one already has a bachelors in another major. ?

    Thanks mcsarpanch, and yes I got my A-levels done in high school, so the uni said if i could manage to get ** or above in my best three subjects, I'd be good for the 5 year course (whiich consists of 1 yr premed, and 4 yrs med).

    Wannabdoc25, I'd imagine you'd either have to do another bachelors in a science major related to med, like biomedicine, or apply with ur highschool grades/SATS to the uni. You should check with the uni.

    So, wht's life like at sgu and grenada?

    Yeah if u have a low gpa you can often be considered for a year or two of premed or foundations if your close. However, A-levels are the qualifications given by the UK and Caribbean and other places and these are valued as 2 years premed in grenada if u attain a B grade average. Coming from the states/Can, its totally discretionary on the school how many years they make you study premed.
