    Hi all

    Is anybody seriously considering studying medicine abroad if all your choices come back as rejected? After not being selected for medicine in the uk I am now aiming to study in Czech. I decided rather that than spending a lot to study biomed. Just wanted to gauge opinion.

    Personally, If I were to not be selected and got the grades after resitting I would just opt for another gap year and maintain all my volunteer placements and work. As going abroad may sound easy, but its so difficult, the cultural and social life is sooo different from the UK; (I say this from knowing someone who has gone abroad). But you need to be able to adapt to learning basic language pretty fast. I would still say if you really want to go abroad, maybe first go and check the place out before you decide.
    I know a lot of british students are travelling to countries such as Bulgaria where there is plovdiv medical school and pleven medical school and also my friend goes to the italian medical school. The plus is that the fees are cheaper ranging from £4000 to £7000.

    Thanks. I looked at Bulgaria but to be honest Plovdiv was off my list when i found out about how the university had bought a "best university" award. Sounds like a shambles to be honest. Pleven is my third choice back up but looks like i am 100% focused on Czech now. I guess it should be hard so those that couldn't hack it don't become doctors.

    Will see how it pans out.

    Yeah offers from Plymouth and UEA which I didn't think was at all possible at the beginning of the year. Ahh the wait must be agonising but you never know if not enough people firm/insure your uni choice or get the grades than you're sorted! Hope the best for you though and things turn out the way you wanted them to!

    Congrats, that's great I'm just hoping people firm elsewhere and then flop on results day, which sounds awful 😭 I guess we'll see how things turn out.

    Hello! I got A*AB in my A levels last year, was planning on doing re-sits and applying for medicine this year.. Thought it would be impossible to get in but I received 3 offers, 2 of which were unconditional so I no longer have to even do the re-sits! Over the moon, wish I had found this thread earlier for all the support! Such a stressful process to go through! Hope it works out for everyone else too!

    Plymouth, Dundee and Newcastle! Got rejected by Exeter pre-interview, and have firmed Newcastle! I did but the only university I notified of them was Dundee because they gave everyone a form to fill in with anything else they wanted the uni to consider! How has your application gone??
