Will I get in to any Medical School in Scotland with 3 As and 2 Bs at Higher? Watch
I need a bit of help, it would be great if you can help me out. I just got 3 As and 2 Bs in Scottish Highers and I really wanted to go in medicine. After doing research I have found out that all the Scottish Universities except Dundee require at least 4 As and a B to consider your application. But I talked to two Dundee medical students last year and they said that the least they heard anyone get in at Dundee was with 4 As and a B.
Do you think I should take a chance and apply there or do you know of anyone who got in with the grades that I have? Will other universities even consider my application as they say their minimum requirement is 4 As and a B?
Moreover even if I apply will I have a chance because I have not ever really volunteered anywhere or had a job. I have read successful personal statements and they state that they have done Duke of Edinburgh, been volunteering for years at care homes and brownies etc.
I have honestly been trying to find volunteering and job opportunities since last year but I have been very unlucky.
But I have shadowed a GP, a medical student and attended Medical insight which was a week worth of shadowing at a hospital in different specialties.
Even a tiny bit of help/advice will be very appreciated because I have no one right now to give me any sort of advice.
I didn't get in the first time round with AAAAB. I reapplied during my gap year and got into two unis. Hope that helps.
You could email the schools and see if they would overlook your s5 if you achieved AAA at AH?
Fortunately for us scots, English unis don't understand our system and see AHs as equal to A levels. So if you apply down there you should have more luck, particularly in the above scenario
