    Hey everyone. Does anyone have any ideas on what I could be doing over the Christmas holidays that are coming up? Are there any courses or talks I could attend that could help me when applying to uni next year or just in general. I just don't want 2 weeks passing over without me doing anything apart from revising. Any input is appreciated.

    The AS Levels I'm doing are Chemistry, Biology, Maths and French. I'm considering applying for Medicine, Natural Sciences, Biochemistry and Law.

    That's funny, if you aren't 100% committed to medicine, I'd advise that you don't consider it

    I can understand considering medicine, nat sci and biochem together, but throwing Law into that mix is a bit weird
    But if you're thinking of medicine but not sure about it, apply for work experience. You need to apply very much in advance for medical work experience. So if you want a placement for Easter or for the summer, start contacting people over the holidays. It's honestly better to realise you want to do medicine sooner rather than later.
    I've always liked Science but I also did GCSE Law and decided that I wouldn't mind becoming a lawyer
