    I went back two years to do my GCSE's so now by the time I finish A levels I will probably be around 20-21. I wanted to know, will I be able to go to a good university and take the course I want here in London? I really need to know before I pick my A level subjects. Please help

    Many people who do graduate entry medicine are usually a bit older. Dont let the factor of age bring you down, you have a very long working life after graduating so look at the long term picture.

    All the best 🙂

    This is so true

    Just think about it, even if you graduate at 25 or whatever, you still have like over 30 years of working life so it doesn't matter if you go to uni a few years older than most people

    That is still very young! Of course you'll be able to go to a good uni!! You can go to uni at any age as long as you have everything they are looking for

    From what I've heard, quite a few medicine students end up starting a year or so behind, due to having to reapply because they didn't get in or going on a gap year. You'll be 20, not 60, so don't worry! :P (I'm applying to do medicine for 2016 entry) Anyway, good luck with it all!
