    I am on a second gap year, applied for medicine for the first time and didn’t get in because I didn’t perform well enough on the interviews.

    Because I am not convinced that I would enjoy my back-up course there is still an option to re-apply. However, the fees rise and uncertainty whether any medical school would accept me next time round make it more sensible solution to relinquish ambition to become a doctor.

    Nevertheless, I think that I was very close to getting an offer and only the inability to concentrate and stop nervousness during the interviews is what let me down.

    Has anyone been in a similar situation? Will the medical schools regard three years out of full-time education as disqualifying? Is studying hard for five years and getting into 65000 pounds debt worth it?
Do you agree with the PM's proposal to cut tuition fees for some courses?
