Overseas Medical Education is available for students who completes “A-Levels in Local (CCS or above) London (CCD or above)”. What about students who have aspiring dreams of becoming a doctor right after O-Levels or talented students who are disheartened with their AL results? Is there a second chance of achieving a “Dr.eam”? The answer is, “Yes”.
Studying Medicine – “After O-Levels or with Less A-Level results”?
The notion of a student failing / obtaining “S” passes in A-Levels and studying medicine has led towards criticism by certain people. Only 40% of what you learn at AL’s are focused in Medical Education, rest are mostly new therefore placing a judgment “ONLY THROUGH A-LEVEL FOR MEDICAL EDUCATION” is a misconception.
Failure to achieve the entry requirement of university, students’ needs to enroll for the “Pre-Medical Program” which is more oriented to Medical Studies than A-Levels. Completion of a Pre-Med program is an indication that the candidate is “ELIGIBLE” to study medicine.

If students do not have minimum grades of CCS/CCD or wishes to enter right after O-Levels, completion of the foundation program is an evidence of the student being qualified to study Medicine.
