    Hi,
    basically in year 11 i achieved high gcse grades and i left my school as i had been accepted into grammar school sixth form. however, during my time there, i had become slightly depressed and the sixth form were not too understanding about it as i was a new student. during my time there (which was around 4 or 5 months), i sat a chemistry AS level exam in january. Shortly after the exam; i'd say about 2 or 3 weeks after, i left college. I do not know what grade i got in the chemistry module...anyway i started again at another college the next year and in the recent january modules, i achieved 3 A's. i want to do medicine hopefully but i dont know whether the medical schools will consider my short few months as a resit year, despite the fact i only did one exam and i left due to depression...can anyone answer my question?

    any advice or knowledge on my situation would be appreciated

    im afraid they say no resits an im pretty sure its not just the full year but individual exams

    if i am right with this its not all bad you can do say a biochem course and apply for a postgraduate medicine course, granted you'll need a 1:1 but if you really want to go into medicine this might be your only route

    hope i helped

    I think it depends on individual med schools.

    If your circumstances are CLEARLY explained by your referee in your UCAS reference, then I imagine most medical schools will consider your application.

    you can do resit as long as it is within the two year period.

    oh one more thing, the resit exam should be higher than the previous score.

    that't ucl told me like 6 months ago.

    hope this helps

    Usually, medical schools will ask that you complete your A levels within 2 years. However, this would probably count as extenuating circumstances. Contact the medical schools (there are only 24 of them, so just copy and paste the same email with the different uni name at the top) and ask whether they would consider you, given your circumstances. It would help if you have documented evidence of your depression, as in a letter from your GP.
