    from speaking to admissions officers, they prefer experience over anything! if you can reflect well on it. To be honest you're in a fantastic position when applying for medicine!

    Wish you all the best next year!

    I also have 4 months part time experience as a pharmacy counter assistant, which I did whilst still working full time in micro and studying for a science gcse, however I gave the position up due finding it 'too much'. Do you think I should also mention this?
    mention it if you're able to refect from it! ie. draw some soft skills from the job like Listening, teamworking skills etc

    Thanks, my position has a lot to do with medicine and healthcare, I give results to doctors each day wishing I was the doctor receiving the result to then go on to deal with the patient. However being a doctor you need the whole package, excellent communication, fantastic problem solving skills etc, neither of which possess. Really need to figure out a way to improve those skills and gain some shadowing experience in the wards and community to reflect on
    It sounds like you've got the right idea to prepare for your application look at the subject specific guidance in my signature for more help
