    I really want to do medicine at uni but I've had anxiety issues in the past which meant I had to leave school at 15. I'm heaps better now and I've got some good A levels (I attend college part time). I can cope with lots of work and I enjoy working with people. Do you think that medical schools would reject me on the basis of my personal health? In that, they would think I couldn't cope or something?
    But then I also really like history and French. I would enjoy that too. I have a bit of a phobia of norovirus as well...but I'm sure I could deal with that in an emergency. I just don't know what to do. Any advice?? Thanks dudes.

    I'd say get some work experience as a HCA and see what you think. Medicine requires a huge commitment and you need to be sure its for you. I don't think they would reject you but you'd need to ask them individually, most are really nice and helpful, so don't be worried.

    Definitely get some work experience but you won't get in without it anyway even if you do decide to apply. They can't reject you on the basis of your health because they'll have given out offers before they find out but so long as it's under control they won't mind they just want to be in the best position to support you.
