    Hello all!

    I am posting here today in the faint hope I might move toward some personal clarity :P Basically, I am 19 and had previously attended the University of Liverpool, for a number of months studying Modern History. After a short while I fell extremely ill and unfortunately had to leave.

    Now that I am on the road to recovery I have had a lot of time for personal reflection and wish to change my course of life (so to speak). I now wish to make the bold move into Medicine, which is difficult considering my A levels are in Religious Studies (A), History (B) and English Literature (B) .. (with the Welsh Baccalaureate).

    I was never BAD at sciences when doing GCSE's I was just too immature to bother. Now that things have changed I am considering two options, either: Applying to a foundation Medical course (which has very few places) or Redoing both GCSE's AND A Levels in September and applying for the 5 year medical course.

    Which do you guys think would be my most secure option? THANKS

    Most med schools dont appreciate re doing a levels or gcse's outside of the set time frame so I think applying for a foundation or access to course would be ur better option.
