I'm now only going to use 3 of my choices for Medicine, and all BMAT schools, as I didn't see the point of doing UKCAT for only one medical school that I didn't have my whole heart in applying to. Planning on applying to Cambridge, Imperial and UCL as a mature student.
I'm also really interested in Radiography and Nuclear Medicine. I've been working as an Imaging Assistant in a hospital Radiography Department, so I'm thinking of using my other 2 choices for Radiography. The Medics and Radiographers I work with think I'd be good at whatever I decide go into, so that's reassuring, but I've never come across anyone who has ever done it this way!
I'm studying Chem, Physics, Biology at A-level, with predicted A*A*A, and I'm doing ok so far with BMAT revision.
I'm just worried that the Universities will think I can't make up my mind, even though I'm definitely committed, and will hopefully be able to vocalise this at interview. I just think that if the worst happens and I don't get any of my med choices, then I need to be doing something that I find really interesting for 3 years that'll either set me up for a good alternative career that I know I'll enjoy, or a good foundation for a shot at Graduate Medicine.
Has anyone else ever done this?
Thanks for any replies!
2 Radiography courses as back-up for 3 Med choices...
