I'm doing my GCSEs currently, and am questioning how to become a surgeon in the UK or similar countries. Where will I go after I finish my A levels?

Thank you so much for asking this important question. Which most of the students wish to inquire about. Before moving to the path of becoming a surgeon, you need to complete your MBBS/MD from medical School or university preferably from European University. But prior to that is the target to get admission in Medical School, for that you need higher grades like at least 5As or 3A+ grades in your A level. After graduating you will continue education in the University for next four years under your chosen study program as Surgeon and later after successful completion of the 4 years training you will take Examination for MRCS/FRCS depending upon your competency in the subject and recommendation from the supervising professor.

Hi Divya, I am not a medical doctor so cannot provide you with any detailed advice. But as I saw that no one had answered your question yet, I thought I'd share the UCAS-website with you https://www.ucas.com/ which is the "Universities and Colleges Admissions Service" in the UK. It provides you with all sorts of information on studying in the UK and if you search for "medicine", you'll find lots of information relating to medical studies. (I went through UCAS back in the days when I applied to study law in the UK.) You should find information about which universities offer which types of courses, and what A-levels you need to be able to apply. I hope you receive more in-depth info from a medic who studied in the UK, but in the meantime I hope this helps you a little further. Good luck!

Hi Divya,
Great that you're thinking about a career in medicine! A can let you know what happens for students in the UK ...
After your GCSEs you would do your A-levels and then apply to medical school. Often, but not always, medical schools do like some science subjects at A-levels. After medical school (5 or 6 years), you do general training for two years (Foundations years), and then can enter a surgical training programme. Alongside your surgical training, you study for postgraduate qualifications and decide what area of surgery you wish to specialise in (e.g. orthopaedics, urology etc).
Hope this helps!
