I guess we won't be meeting up anytime soon then

I'm sure there's a bit of OCD going on
But I'm sure you'll get full marks anyway :ahee:

What would Sylvia Langfield say :teehee:

You could reapply, or do another degree and then apply for graduate entry (worked for me ) You could also go abroad if you have the money/really want to or settle for a different course/career path.

REAPPLY FOR THE LAST TIME. But not with the same application and Uni's. It would be helpful to post your grades, ukcat, ps basically your whole application package into tsr help forums and see if someone can help you out. I am sure there are many experts on TSR that can give you valuable advice and where you might went wrong.

you'll get in next time. just dont burn out, repeated applying can do that to you.

take a break before you apply again.

Don't give up you can do this, have you asked unis for feedback? If you did try and follow their feedback, redo your ukcat and do your best on it. Improving your score will significantly increase your chances even if they say it doesn't matter that much

Goodluck OP!

I've had 12 rejections and am still insane enough to give it another go.

Watch this space (with positive results)

i felt really sorry for her the 2nd time round and wasnt sure why she was giving it another go, but i guess the gap years allowed her to save up money and get lots of experience!

Yeah it maybe was worth all the effort, people who never give up their dreams and keep fighting for it make me smile

Accept the fact that you're not clever enough for medicine, and so do biochemistry instead.
People aren't "clever enough" because they're not good at biology/chemistry...therefore taking Biochemistry is the last thing they should do. I really don't get why people suggest that.

If they're not good enough at science but like the idea of care, then there's all sorts of social work and nursing they could persue instead.
