    hey, basically for university i want to do medicine. But last year my sister missed the entry requirements and now has to do pharmacy, which i really don't want to happen. I no everyones gonna say 'just work hard' but I've got a really bad work ethic, so do i apply to a grammar school to boost my learning and probably change my work ethic or do i get a tutor. please help me out because the deadlines for applications are running out.

    School can only help so much and it depends on how you learn. I go to a grammar school and I don't think it's particularly motivational, there are still people who do no work and the teachers can only do so much to help. A tutor can be very useful as one-on-one time will ensure that you don't miss any points.
    The important point it you, if you don't have a good work ethic no-one can force you to have one. you need to find something that will inspire you to work or you wont get into medicine.
