    Yes, he will still have to sit the entrance exam unless he applies through a Charles representative.

    Secondly, I don't think he will be given exemption from many classes...just some similar ones. I think animal anatomy is only vaguely similar to human anatomy so I think he will still need to take most of the courses. If he has a college degree in cell biology or anatomy or physiology, then yes, he "might" be exempted from these subjects.

    He would also like to know if there are many students in charles who dont finish until their late 20s if he will be in a minority with regard to age.
    Do people with college experience tend to do better than 18/19 year olds?

    Yes, I personally think that college grads definitely tend to do better. I think it's because they've have all the fun when they were in college and know that med school is no joke. Almost all Americans/Canadians are in their early 20s (23-25) and we did have two students in the first year who were mid-aged (in their 40s) but unfortunately, they didn't make it to the 2nd yr.

    Most high school grads find it rather hard as they've not been used to studying vast amounts of material within a relatively short period of time.

    So I don't think your friend should have a problem as long as he's willing to work hard.
