(you can skip to last para) As a brief of my situation, I have been considering medicine as a possible career path for quite a while. However, during last month, July, I had a weeklong work placement in a hospital. I enjoyed most of the aspects, but I felt medicine is not a field for me. I didn't quite enjoy going to wards - which is a main part of a doctor. I then talked my situation thru with my family and etc - have concluded to try for dentistry.
For dentistry I have done some basic research at this point, I may be wrong but most universities (all good ones) ask for 2 weeks worth of work placement at a dentists. The deadline for dentistry applications is 15th October, I don't think I have time left to do one. I have work placements, including at the NHS shadowing doctors but I don't think this is passable here.
+ most universities require English Language at a grade B minimum. As for me, not due to my academic inability but school to blame for, I achieved for English language a grade C (and a grade B in English Literature) . As a background, I was put into lower sets for all subjects - including to have been put in for IGCSE English and not GCSE, IGCSE English you are not able to achieve higher than a C grade (considering I was a top student and highest achiever of my English class too), when I joined BGHS in year 11.
I am now aiming to do dentistry (applying for 2017). Do you think I'm too late in making this decision? Aren't I tight on time. I don't know if I should give up now or not?
Lastly, what may a way round all mentioned above?
Thank you! (I hope I didn't bore you to death)
Is it still possible?
