    Hi everyone,

    I am a Swedish guy, 17 year old with two years left on upper secondary class. Reading a science program, with highest grade in; math, biology, chemistry and physics. Other subject has made my average not too good but far over average in Sweden.

    Is there any good homepage where you can read about application forms, requirements etc.

    I know it's a long time before applying, but I really want info now, to plan my future studies.

    Kind regards,
    Bergie

    I've heard of two swedes' studying in the UK, I don't know that much about Ireland. Doesn't really matter for me really, both countries is nice.

    Someone who could make a short sum-up for UK and Ireland, what's the difference between them etc..

    Thanks

    Thank you for your answer regarding the recruiting system and where you reply. I'm having a hard time to see what the minimum grade is to reply.

    I'm not having top notch grades, but I have already collected some volunteer works, have been working at a hospital. So there will not really be a problem to fix recommend letters from famous Swedish researcher.

    In Sweden they only look at your grade, but in UK it seems to be a lot more, personal statements, interviews and tests for the program.

    So what I'm searching now is some kind of statistics from the school of average grade on the tests and from upper secondary class.

    Thanks in advance,

    You are absolutely spot on in saying that in the UK, the emphasis is placed very much on an applicants non-academic achievements - due to the fact that all students applying to read medicine have extremely competitive grades.

    At the end of the day, if you consider yourself to be a very good all-rounder, then apply!
