    Hi I just got my a level results a few weeks back and I had applied to do medicine down in Ireland (I live in Northern Ireland), however I didn't get the grades so it effectively rules me out of going down south as I would have to retake my GCSEs again (their policy). I was wondering should I either do a graduate entry, go abroad (most likely Italy so if anyone could give details) or to apply through ucas however I'd have to repeat some of my alevels to get the grades from uk universities but it would be my first time applying to medicine in the uk

    Medicine is a great tool to have in your armoury.

    GCSE grades are harder these days though. Can anyone recommend some good study books for Keirman? I'll see what I can find on my bookshelf.

    Hi Keirman,

    Welcome to the forum. You will need to reconsider whether medicine is actually going to be the course for you. With having to redo your GCSE's or A levels as well as an 8 year course - Is this for you?
