    Hi everyone,
    I have just finished first year natural sciences(physical) at Cambridge achieving 2:1, I am wondering if there is any way I could change to medicine, always wanted to become a doctor and now I think I should take a risk and chase my dreams. Why I didn't apply initially? I came to the UK 6 years ago without any previous education before that nor the ability to speak English so my GCSE's were a mess(2A's, 3B's and etc). I was too scared that I wouldn't get into university for medicine with those GCSE grades.

    Anyone knows any possible ways to change ? Any advice will be appreciated

    Results:
    A* in A-Level maths, further maths, chemistry and physics
    A in AS-level Biology

    Thank you, you wonderful people

    Realistically your only option is to finish the degree and apply as a graduate. You should be able to apply to most places, as long as you get a 2:1 and decent entrance exam scores.

    Amazing A level results.

    Finish your degree with a 2.1 or higher and apply for graduate entry. Also try to get some work experience or volunteering in the medical field.

    What a turn around! Well done on your results.

    As mentioned above, apply for graduate entry medicine, which I believe is very competitive to get into.

    Your options are to drop out and apply for medicine, or wait until you graduate and apply then.

    The latter is definitely the better option for you.
