    I am in Year 10 and I am going to do work experience soon. I want to go towards medical but does that mean that I have to definitely do a professional work experience? Can I just do a department store because that is where I am applying

    I doubt you'll be able to get much medical work experience in year 10 anyway, and I'm not sure if you have to put all your work experience on your application.
    If you do go for a career in medicine, you will probably gain a lot more work experience in the actual sector when you're 16+ years of age.
    Although, saying that, it may be better to get more 'meaningful' work experience, but to be honest, in year 10, a department store may be the only work experience you can get...

    I did my work experience in a bank, I want to go into medicine too, but its hard to get medical experience at that age.

    I think it will be much easier to get medicine related work experience in Alevel
