In theory yes because the subject itself fascinates me. Its not a case of not having the grades for me, but not having the motivation and dedication to do it.

So in reality, No because I think id hate being a doctor, and 5 years at uni plus all the crap you have to do after I couldnt handle.

No I wouldn't. You don't just have to have the grades for medicine - you need to want it as well. I don't think I could treat sick people - I'd run a mile... :tongue:

God no!

I'd want to do what I am doing, classics. If I could do it at any university, then I'd like to have done it at Oxford, but hey, minor point. If not classics, it would probably be English literature. Or history. Or sociology. There are so many arts degrees, in fact, that interest me -- but science/maths/medicine just doesn't attract me, I'm afraid.

No way, not everyone would want to give the stupid amounts of medicine that doctors give for anything when natural remedies work just as well. Medics however, would deny this as the drug companies which are really powerful, in trials for example, Homeopathy give the tablets once everyday like conventional medicine, however it doesn't work like this, but the companies do this, so it looks like they don't work, so they can make more money. Money over side effects etc.

Nope. Yes, it may be a good degree to have, respectable, well paid profession...etc. It's just not me. Occupational therapy, however, is.

No way!

Aside from history, I would consider studying English, psychology, law, international relations. A Science related degree doesn't even enter my mind...

Nope. If I could do anything I would do computer science. Sadly I'm terrible at maths and physics.

In a word...no.
It would have to be Creative Writing or Journalism in an ideal world.

I don't mean to be rude, but do you mind me asking why you picked those universities and courses when your grades suggest that you could have applied to ones with much higher entrance requirements?

I'd rather do medicine than anything in the world. Every part of me desires to do medicine. That's it. Grades wouldn't stop me, tution fees wouldn't stop me.
I think you'll find grades can quite easily stop you.


(Im not saying they will for you btw)

No way. I think I'd hate being a doctor, and I'd get really stressed with a medicine degree with all the pressure. My ideal degree would either be the one I'm planning to do - English and Creative Writing - or Zoology. I really wish I'd taken a Biology A Level now so I'd be able to do Zoology.
