    Hi guys,
    I am 20 and I already completed highschool and first year of uni in Italy. I got 72/100 on my high school "diploma" but failed Imat so I started nursing and now I have the chance to move to London. When I was in hs I didn't even consider med school's outside Italy as I did not have enough financial support so I never cared about my diploma score, infact I have worked troughout my 4th and 5th year of high school. I have already done one year of nursing and although it is a beautiful job it's not what I want to do for the rest of my life. Since my hs's diploma isn't enough because med school in uk require more than 85/100 I am thinking of taking A-levels . IS THERE a college in London or near London that allows me to take a ONE year intensive a-level gce without having to sell my kidneys off? I am not worried about the difficulty of the course as I have already done this subjects in Italian.
    I have plenty of voluntary work and job experience outside and inside the medical field.

    I dont think so all courses are linear but dont hold me up for it
