    So, I've just sat my n5s and I am now in 5th year studying for my highers. For some time now I have been set on studying medicine (I'm just completely fascinated by it lol). In just over a year's time I will be beginning the application process to universities (assuming my highers to go plan). As such, I'd like to know the best places to study medicine in the UK (Scotland is more convenient so somewhere local would be preferred).
    If you have or are preparing to apply to medical schools or are currently studying at one I would very much appreciate if you let me know the schools you applied to, what the requirements were and if you don't mind, what grades/work experience did you have to offer. I'll list the subjects I've taken so far if it's of help.

    N5:
    Maths
    English
    Biology
    Chemistry
    History
    Modern studies

    Higher (ongoing):
    Maths
    English
    Biology
    Chemistry
    History

    But ye just all you know please and thank you. U don't need to have applied to answer-any help is appreciated!

    Yeah since you live in Edin, St Andrews and Dundee won't be too far away from home either

    But yeah, try aim for 5 As, do some work experience/volunteering, and then think about ukcat/personal statement as you get into 6th year.

    Pm me if you want more details/have any questions.
