    Hi everyone,

    I recently graduated with a 2:2 from a Russel group university studying architecture. I was always torn between architecture and medicine however opted for a creative route. I realised I chose the wrong degree practically in the first year however was advised that my best option was to stick it out and change after course completion. Whiles the grade I have isn't what I wanted, I have learnt so much from such a rigorous, demanding course!

    I just wanted some opinions on my options right now. As of last month St Georges isn't accepting 2:2 students for graduate entry and approx 2/3 unis would consider my degree with a masters. Considering I have spent so much money on a degree already, I don't think its wise to do a masters (especially for the sake of applying). I did an A level in maths and an AS level in chemistry, so I was considering opting for an access course & acquiring more experience in the NHS. But research shows the access course is limited to certain universities. Maybe I should complete A levels biology & chemistry?

    I've also been considering studying abroad, I'm unsure as to whether European or Canadian universities will accept me. If anyone has any advice AT ALL, I would be more than willing to hear it! It's very daunting to have the whole world ahead of you but not know how to take your first steps!

    Thank you x
Do you agree with the PM's proposal to cut tuition fees for some courses?
