    I really need help with this. As I am just going around in circles. I am a year 1 undergraduate with the Open University on the BSc Psychology degree.

    Medicine is the goal! So I don't know if I should swap my degree pathway for the Open University BSc Health Science or stick with the BSc Psychology? Liverpool are looking for biomed/health science degree. I have asked them if the OU Health Science would qualify but no reply (as of yet)

    Next September I am taking 5 GCSE's plus I will have two years volunteer experience to add to my application. (If two years will be enough. As some have been working for years in the NHS etc)

    So, do I apply for an access course after the GCSE's with claiming a diploma in Psychology or stick with the full Psychology degree then access? Or swap degree to the Health Science to apply to Liverpool direct .. I have no idea what to do. I am a mature student (27) plus I do have a large gap in my working career due to raising a young family. I feel by taking diffent routes I am cutting other doors off to get in.
