    Hello , I am currently an AS level student who is looking at universities...... I'm really confused about what I meant to be looking at and what I need to do for studying at university. :confused::confused::confused: I have a problem as neither of my parents went to uni and they are as lost on what to do as I am !!! My AS's are Biology, Chemistry, Art and PE and I chose these on the assumption that I wanted to do physio. but recently I have become very and truly interested in doing medicine, then specialising in neurology. I'm predicted the A that you need at A level in Biology and Chemistry but can not decided to do PE or Art for A level. I am severely dyslexic which mean I only got 1A*, 2A, 3B, 3C at GCSE's. I under standard that you need 6 A at GCSE to do medicine and so am know doubting myself. I've got volunteering and work experience in child care, child education and also at a local MS centre. I am in desperate need of advice and any would be really helpful !!!

    You're best contacted the admissions of each university you're interested in.
    you're doing biology and chemistry which are the most important for applying to medicine.
    the fact you're the first in your family to apply/go to university usually plays on your side if you mention it - it shows you're ambitious.
    if you go on the website for all of the universitys you like and speak to the medicine admissions tutors they'll give you advice on whether you're doing the right courses and what you need to do.
    they're always really helpful.

    I just started this account and have no idea where to start a "thread" and evidentially started it in the wrong place. sorry . I was looking at the dyslexia threads and when it said start a new one I though that's how it worked.
