If I could do ANY degree in the whole world, it would be Astronomy. I would just love to say to people "I'm doing an Astronomy degree at University".

It was always been a passion of mine, but I'm not clever enough in that way (Maths and Science) to take it to degree level.

I live for the stars man.

I'd want to do artificial intelligence, it sounds awesome. But no, I wouldn't do medicine. I'm not interested in it at all.

how can the people on here just say "If I did I would have been doing it next year"...its quite hard to get into, you know
I didn't want to say that I would have been doing medicine, because I know how tough it is to get a place, but I think people are trying to say that the reason they aren't doing medicine isn't because they're unable to, because they couldn't get the grades, like the OP is sort of implying.

Nope, I'd still stick with what I want to do. I have no interest in medicine at all, and never had.

Yes! I'm sure many more would do it if the grades weren't so much more difficult to attain than other courses.

No, I'm gonna have a career in healthcare but medicine...no, I don't think I'd want to study for five years and the whole responsibility of diagnosing someone's illness and deciding how to make them well.

Wh is Oxford better for Medicine than Cambridge?

Im just asking this assess public opinion rather than any personal reason lol - i whole heartedly agree its better.
I just prefer Oxford in general, therefore since I wouldn't mind either for Medicine, Oxford it is. That's all really. :yep:

Nope. I've no interest in medicine as a degree. While I love the idea of being a surgeon, in an environment such as Grey's Anatomy or House MD, the degree itself bares little interest to me.

I'm much more interested in economics (which I'm going to study) or statistics (which will form a large part of my degree).

No, I'm too creative, and it doesn't really interest me at all. I'm not motivated by money either, and the thought of 80 hour weeks....

Nope, never. I hate science with a passion (mostly because I suck at it!).

No wayyy. It's not a degree it's a LIFESTYLE. I don't want that stress.
To be fair, I had the subjects at AS and got good enough grades to carry Chemistry on, and with some work experience I could've applied for Medicine. It crossed my mind. But you have to have PASSION, which is something I haven't got.
