    You should ask the universities in the UK direct. As one example, Hull York Medical School's website for international students is easily found at the hyms website (sorry this forum won't let me post links), just go to www . hyms . ac . uk and you will find it easily

    It even tells you about the glorious UK weather, including which months of the year are dry and sunny (none of them).

    It says for Canada:

    At least 5 acceptable grade 12 courses at AAAAA, to include Biology and Chemistry; taken in a single sitting.
    Graduates should have a minimum GPA 3.3.

    If you want a list of medical schools in the UK, try:
    www . medschoolsonline . co . uk

    Search UCAS for medicine. This will show entrance requirements for international students.

    The UCAS system just facillitates your application, UCAS doesn't apply for you. You will need to speak to the schools you are interested in directly, and then decide which of these schools you want to apply to.

    Application deadline is October 15th 2008 (ish) for Sept 2009 entry, so you can register with UCAS as soon as is possible.

    Good luck

    ok Im so confused

    I went to on UCAS first, and I found a 5 year MD cource. Then, I went to on the university's website and try find some information about internationa students. It said please see entry requirement.

    Medicine

    I went to see entry requirement and I got confused

    So I need to stay in UK and complete A-level before applying ?

    I heard A-level is higher level of education than the normal high school diploma offered in Canada.

    All applicants must hold a Standard Grade or GCSE level (or equivalent) pass in the following subjects:

    English Language & Mathematics

    Candidates whose first language is not English, must also achieve either IELTS overall score of 7.0 with a minimum of 7.0 in speaking section, or TOEFL score of 600/250, plus 50-60 in the TSE speaking test.

    NATIONAL QUALIFICATIONS (NQ)
    5H at AAAAB obtained at a single sitting of Hs. Chemistry is highly desirable, plus two from Biology/ Human Biology, Mathematics and Physics. Applicants only attempting four Hs owing to school policy or personal difficulties are normally required to achieve AAAA at the first sitting. Candidates who do not meet the H requirements in S5 may be considered* but must offer an appropriate programme of study in S6. The normal expectation would be that applicants may offer one new H at A, plus two AH at BB, or two new Hs at AA plus one AH at B. Alternative studies could be 3AH at ABB; Chemistry is highly desirable, plus one from Biology, Mathematics or Physics plus one other subject.
    *Please refer to our website for full details.

    GENERAL CERTIFICATE OF EDUCATION (GCE)
    3Adv at AAB. Equivilant to 340 UCAS Tariff Points
    Chemistry is highly desirable, plus at least one from Biology, Mathematics or Physics and one other.

    IRISH LEAVING CERTIFICATE/ ARDTEISTIMEIREACHT (ILC)
    6H at AAAAAA obtained at a single sitting of Hs.
    Chemistry is highly desirable plus two from Biology, Mathematics and Physics.

    INTERNATIONAL BACCALAUREATE (IB)
    3 subjects at HL (Grade 6 or better) preferably including Chemistry, plus 3 subjects at SL (average of grade 6) - i.e. 36 points overall.

    UK CLINICAL APTITUDE TEST(UK CAT)
    The University of Aberdeen Medical School has agreed, along with most other UK medical schools, to support the introduction of the UK Clinical Aptitude Test (UK CAT). This test is used in conjunction with other methods of assessment in the admissions process. All candidates therefore must complete the UK CAT by the appropriate closing date for that year's entry.
    For more information, visit: UK Cat Home

    Our departmental website contains more, extremely useful information for all potential medicine applicants, their parents and teachers.
