Medicine Pathway

Our medical pathway is a specialist pathway for any student who aspires to progress to medical school and eventually practise medicine.

The pathway has higher entry requirements compared to our other pathways, given the grades ultimately needed to be awarded a place at a UK medical school.  Those wishing to join the pathway will typically need to meet the following entry requirements:

  • Grade 7 in GCSE triple science OR Grades 7/7 in GCSE trilogy science 
  • Grade 7 in GCSE Maths
  • At least two other GCSE grades 7 and above.

The pathway includes the prerequisite of A level Chemistry, along with 2 other A level subjects and an enrichment qualification. However, our medicine pathway is more than just a combination of A level courses; it provides students with a package of support and extra-curricular opportunities designed to support applications to medical school and help students stand out from the crowd. 

Those joining the pathway benefit from the following:

  • Individual support with medical school applications. 
  • Support in preparing for medical school entrance exams and interviews. 
  • Support in securing relevant work experience. 
  • The opportunity to join a student medicine society, involving other students who’ve experienced the medical school application process and have progressed to studying medicine.

7 of our sixth form students have progressed to a UK medical school over the course of the last 4 years. Our intention is to build on the success of these students and increase the number of Forge sixth form leavers who go on to study medicine.
