    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.

    I do understand what you mean. You've decided that medicine is the career for you...just be careful not to post something similar in the forums too often

    Some people tend to get a bit annoyed with younger people posting about things like that, simply because they themselves are going through a lot of stress at the moment with current applications. I've flown off the handle with many a 12 year old last year for the same thing.

    Don't take the angry comments personally The fact that you have a clear ambition at this stage is good, but can be misinterpreted.

    lololol seiously calm down, I never even knew a degree in medicine existed until 5th year (scotland) and now I'm in my third year studying it...

    dunno when you guys choose your GCSEs? but calm down, get some hobbies, watch tv and enjoy how easy school actually is. take the right subjects and revise when it comes down to it. your current life is more important than your future one as a medical student (which is very likely to happen if you are this passionate about it)

    As many people have iterated, it is facile to say medicine is 'your life' aged 13. I appreciate you may be very interested in it, and that's good, but don't shut your mind off to any other career - especially at such an early age. Further, you do not need anything like 10A*s to stand a chance, I had 1.5 and got offers.

    And my little brother is 12 and has a lot more sense than this. Her parents should ban her from forums.

    No I'm not a medical student, just thought I'd put your mind at ease about your GCSEs :-)

    Although I got A*A*A*A*A*AAAAAA in my GCSEs, so probably wouldn't have made it into medicine even if I'd wanted to.. but I was expecting to get all Cs the whole way through Y10 and Y11!
    My brosef got into kings college london for medicine on 1 A*, 8 A's and a few B's. Don't sell yourself short those are great grades and you should be proud of them Really you only need a handful of A*'s or A's, good AS, work experience and you have a decent shot at medicine.
