All of the time i was at school i hated it and didnt do any work. i misssed nearly two years of education becasue i got expelled from one school.and as a product of this didnt do as well as i cold have in my gcse's. i ended up getting two a stars, five a's, one b, and two d's (not in important subjects, double award vocational gcse), while most of my friends and people i know got about 10 a stars
however since i have started college i have really started to enjoy my studies. the a-levels i am taking are maths, english lit, physics, chemistry.
i think now that i would like to be a doctor. would i stand any chance of getting into any decent medical school with my grades or should i think of an alternative career path?
Work your ass off and you can become a doctor. Aim high old boy - if you find you can't become a doctor, take a gap year and think about other careers.
Your GCSEs might be a problem because medicine is extremely competitive and the vast majority of applicants, especially to the top medical schools, have a string of A*s. Also, as Kyoto said, A-level biology would have put you in a far stronger position and I don't think you'll get very far unless you at least pick up the AS. Getting expelled won't look fantasitc either, but if your new college write you a very positive reference and you can show at interview how much you've changed, they might be willing to overlook it. It might be an idea to get some work experience so you can write a cracking personal statement. You can only apply for 4 places anyway, so you could fill the other 2 with more general science degrees and apply for a postgraduate medicine course, or alternatively take a gap year where you can do A2 biology and reapply post A-level.
There are loads of ways to become a doctor. If you work your ass off for the next 2 years then it's entirely possible to get in "the front door" as it were - your GCSE results while not being sensational are hardly awful. That said if you're determined to be a doctor then even if you aren't accepted onto a medical course then there's all sorts of things you can do like a Medical sciences / biology degree and then do graduate medicine.
Indeed: Aim for the moon. If you miss, you may hit a star...
ask yourself this question, is the there any point of not trying?!?!!??!
