I had been thinking about studying medicine but after I totally messed up my chem bio and maths as level exams, i really don't stand a chance. I'm expecting a c or below in maths, b in chem and bio and assured of an a in psych. Now I'm thinking of doing a science based subject at university and perhaps go on to the field of medical research which i know requires just as much devotion, hard work and a's in as and a2 science. But it is a lot less competitive than medicine. I do love medical science and i find it fascinating. After getting the shock of my life with science and maths papers, i feel dislodged from my path of medicine. And I feel I'm going to struggle all my life for a job with a science based degree like physiology, biochem or neuroscience. If I decide to go into a research based career, what would that hold for me? What is the process of becoming a medical research scientist? I'm absolutely clueless and confused!
