So here I am sitting in year 13 being warned that next year my UCAS forum will have crept up on me and I will have a box which I need to sell myself in and here is what I have so far:
GCSEs 6A* 3A < IS this good enough in all honesty?
Not much... oh and astronomy as well
For my As Levels I am studying Maths, Chemistry, Biology and Physics and I am confident, but not complacent I will achieve 4 A grades. So I have also enrolled in some extra curricular to try boost my which include:
8 Week course working with autistic children
Biomedical research days
Pope John Paul Award (only in Northern Ireland I believe...) which is volunteering in the community and parish with a slight religious tilt
Online courses through Future Learn about antibiotic resistance...will do a few of these as they are quite short.
Of course I will seek hospital or health based volunteering soon as I am just waiting to talk to my careers teacher.
What else can really define a good medical applicant, and are my GCSEs up to scratch?
From GCSE to A level, it's all changing
