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?
Would you pay less for a humanities degree?
