    I got:

    C-Chemistry
    C-Biology
    B-Maths
    B-French

    Should I really be considering Medicine? If not what would be the next best choice or what other careers would be good. I had a look at Neuroscience and Bio-Medical Sciences plus still having a look at other options.

    You should apply to medicine but also apply to do another similar subject, maybe biology or biomedical science as well if you don't get in. Normally for medicine you need A's and B's in your subjects but you could still do really well at A2 and get in.

    To be brutally honest, no it is not. It is very competitive and you will not stand out.

    I would consider other options in terms of a university degree. If you REALLY want to be a doctor, get your undergraduate BSc in a similar degree, like biochemistry, and apply as a postgrad.

    It is better not to waste 4 applications for what is almost certainly going to be rejections (sorry!), so that you can use them more wisely!

    I would still apply if I were you and you really wanted to do medicine, as opposed to, "it would be a good career and I'd make a tonne of money".

    If your application is strong besides your grades, you have a shot!

    good luck!

    I also think I achieved what I think are average results for medicine
    A psychology
    A biology
    B chemistry
    C french

    I understand they are not awful and I myself are very pleased with them but I am beginning to wonder if I will stand a chance amongst other applications who have all a grades

    I am thinking about maybe graduate entry with anatomy or neuroscience because both look like interesting and relevant courses
    Ot maybe psychology because I do well at that in school so maybe it is wiser to choose something I know I am good at???



    Good luck!!!
