So, I needed AAA for Durham Biomed, got AAC missing my KCL firm offer of AAB too, so ended up at Warwick biomed through clearing which is still a great university, but not entirely sure on the course. After some thought, I've come up with these options.
1) I'm considering taking a gap year and working out what course I'd like to do, reapplying for a different course maybe chemistry, applying for 2015 entry, retaking some exams and maybe doing AS maths, getting work experience for this new course.
2) I can try out Warwick biomed, but the only risk to this is that if I drop out (haven't even checked if this is allowed) after my first term I'll be in a bad position for reapplying for next year, not having much time to figure out what course I want to do (since the UCAS deadline is in January), and my school might not even take me on, since by the end of the first uni term, that'd also be the end of school's first term, and 1/3rd of the year's teaching gone.
One of my concerns is that I'll go Warwick because I don't want to stay at home for another year, feeling like I've wasted a year of my life also with recurrant arguments between parents, not because I actually want to do biomed.
What'd you think about the options? - How would you recommend I go about finding a new course? Also, how were you sure that you were going to like/enjoy a course, how would you recommend I go about doing it?
I was also wondering if anyone knew what the biomed course at Warwick was like (modules, workload, difficulty?) and if anybody was in a similarly apprehensive position as me about the course...and how it panned out for them?
Sorry for the monstrously long post! Thank you.
