Why not apply for medicine directly? Why sell yourself short before you've even started? Work as hard as you can for your A-levels, then see where to go from there. Go to open days, find out what each biomed/ medicine course entails. I had two students in my year who also got into dentistry. So it's all possible either way.(Original post by studentshavefun)
The cost will be fine for me, personally (as I currently go to a private school etc), and I am also one of the youngest in my year so it would work out well in age wise. I just worry what will happen, say once I get a biomedical science degree but do not get into graduate entry medicine. So it is quite risky but the sound of graduate entry medicine does sound to be better especially with gaining more knowledge.
But be under no illusion, the GEP is not a walk in the park and not for the faint hearted .
Is it really that intense? Would I cope?
