    Yes
    Do you mean doing the degree which is IBMS accredited? Then university I've firmed do that degree.
    What is IBMS portfolio? Do you study biomedical science?



    I'd like to specialise in haematology insha'Allah. I really would like to so I'll probably go into medicine after that, if that is.
    I don't do Chemistry A-level unfortunately.
    Medicine is hard, I won't lie at all..............even in the postgraduate bit. I know people who decided to go to Romania as it was so hard.
    I do certainly know a few biomed people who went on to do medicine after, one from QM to Barts, Kings to Romania, Kings to Keele and some other weird course to Keele from QM.

    Not absolutely. IBMS accreditation with regards to your degree is one thing. This too is very important. However, what I am referring to is the IBMS portfolio - sort of like coursework assessments alongside practical training - which must be completed and passed if one wishes to register with the HCPC. All of this is necessary if one wants to work as a biomedical scientist - especially in the NHS.

    I'm a Biomedical science graduate

    Is biochemistry any better though?

    Well it's different and more likely to find work elsewhere as Biomed can be kinda limited in scope.

    graduate entry medicine is even more competitive than doing medicine just after a-levels

    How do people even have the funds for more than 1 degree :dontknow:

    And also soo much studying. You'll be like 26 when you finish the degree

    They were doing their degrees when things were 3k, a lot of them worked in their spare time and some took a year off to work as well as family support.

    They generally tend to be very organised and very active in the charity field despite the fact they barely have any time to spare.
    Plus I tend to fit in with them more because of the things they discuss bar medical discussions.

    They should be rewarded inshAllah.....whenever I see Medical students, they are always on doing anything despite doing such courses. Always going on those special abroad sessions where they help out giving treatment to the poor and needy.

    Plan A - is going to Medicine insha'Allah, if that is
    Plan B - is working with the NHS, I think I need to look into this further because this is what I'd prefer

    JazakAllahu Kahiran for letting me know

    Just a question - Did you do one year of placement when at uni?

    I would have to agree on this. The actual concepts are okay, it's just the fact that the volume of work is so unbelievable, the workload and how much you're expected to memorise.

    Ofcourse there's also the applying part as well.

    I don't even know if i'll pass my exams this year tbh, i pray to Allah swt we all find success in our exams. It's such a brutal policy - one failed re-sit and you're out.

    The key (a lesson i've learned the hard way) is you literally need to go to every lecture , try to do exam questions very, very early on, basically understand it properly inside out and don't only memorize.

    Whoever wants to apply to medicine should go for it. If you love it, have a passion for it, there's not many things in life you can't achieve by the help of Allah swt, whether you ask for it or not.
    They still have packed out timetables compared to normal students....but once you get to the clinic part, it's more relaxing but also gives the motivation behind why people are doing Medicine in the first place. The first few years are quite heavy, but during the later years where you spend more time on clinics and practical stuff....I do think it eases up on people and gives that push to become a doctor watching these issues and solving the medical issues in peoples lives.

    As a Muslim, it should be one of the most rewarding jobs there is in society, saving peoples lives and making their lives better.....I think the hardest part for many when they start is the night shift and obviously watching a patient in their care die.
