    Hi there,

    I am interested in doing the degree completion program at UBC as you have. I am actually looking to go into medicine after completing this program, and currently have 3 years worth of a Biochemistry degree, as well as a Dental Hygiene diploma completed. My one big fear is that my grades would drop after entering this program. Although Biochemistry is challenging, the marks are allotted based solely on tests and lab work, so the marking scheme for the UBC program is a bit worrysome. I will need to keep a 85% average or above to be a strong candidate for medicine, and was wondering if you think this a doable with this program. Thank you for any advice you can provide!
