    Good one.......Asian parents are strict as hell, and even swindle child's disability benefits.

    When a child is born, the first thing an asian father says is "My son will be a doctor or an engineer" with a proud speech.

    Man, would they (dark aliens) not wait till the next 10 years and see what their child wants to do!

    But unfortunately, asian parents, themselves are uneducated.
    I think you need to think more before making such sweeping generalisations...

    There are some people that get ALL A*'s and still get rejected. Your A Levels, Personal Statement and Interview Skills are a lot more important. Dont think JUST because you have 50 million A*'s you're guarenteed

    Brighton/Sussex and I have an interview at St Georges coming up. GCSE grades are not the be-all-and-end-all when it comes to medicine, you just have to apply very carefully if you don't do all that well.
    Oh, and get this, my B grades were in sciences

    I do remember being an applicant, just. :p:

    But I don't remember ever being as ignorant, stupid or boring as the applicants that find their way onto TSR. I didn't 'check track' three times a day, I didn't memorise stock answers to 101 interview questions and I didn't ask bone questions on t'internet and then get angry when I didn't get the answer I wanted.

    Thankyou To Beska and Jemma You really helped me.
    Right. Go look in the mirror and really think hard about your life.

    Medicine is by far the most important thing in my life, maybe you should find some hobbies

    Hello there

    Perhaps my previous post was a little harsh and of course you are right, everyone is different. My course is very important to me, as are my future career prospects but it certainly doesn't occupy every waking moment of my life

    I can only comment on my own experience, and in my experience all of my friends from school that were uber-keen on medicine ended up not doing medicine. They spent so long reading articles, shadowing consultants etc that they neglected to ensure that they achieved the required academic grades. I'm not saying that this will happen to you, I'm saying that maybe you can relax about medicine for a few years. Focus on your hobbies and having fun now before all the exam and application stress starts.

    Best of luck anyway

    Hi, thanks I know your right. Medicine is not like me studying every minute of my life, im a relaxed person, but I have decided rather than just not doing anything maybe start studying. So saying Medicine is my life I dont literally mean that, im meaning like its my dream job, my aim of life, my ambition etc.
