Hello, I have just completed a 2.1 level 8 science degree in NUIG (2013-2017). However I previously registered for an arts degree in NUI Maynooth in 2011, but dropped out at the end of first year. Will this make me ineligible to study graduate medicine?
I see in the CAO guidelines it says " Candidates must hold, or expect to hold by 1 July 2018, a minimum 2H1 (second class honours, grade one, or equivalent) award in their first Level 8 undergraduate Bachelor Honours degree (NFQ Level 8) " which makes it seem like I am not eligible as my 2.1 is not in the first degree I registered for. However, on the UCD website it says "To be eligible for consideration you must hold, or expect to hold by the July prior to entry, a minimum 2.1 (Second Class Honours, Grade One) result in your first Honours bachelor degree (NFQ Level 8) awarded." My science degree is the first and only degree I was awarded.
Does anyone know of someone in a similar situation to me? I'm hoping to sit the March GAMSAT and study graduate medicine next year. Thanks!
