Hi everyone, I am looking to study medicine and have a slightly alternative yet well-planned route that I need some advice on? I'm just looking for some reassurance basically to confirm that if I give this plan a go...it will work!?
Two years ago, I did 11 GCSEs in a range of subjects achieving nothing lower than a B grade, however close to exam-time, a traumatic experience occurred and so my GCSE results weren't as good as I wanted them to be. Anyway, I went to college to study Philosophy, Biology, Chemistry and English Lit/Lang at AS level and had a very hard time and ended up dropping out for various reasons including the traumatic incident that I hadn't really dealt with and that Chemistry AS absolutely killed me!!
SO...for the past 12 months I have been working, getting experience, etc and am now ready to start my A levels again! I am going to be studying at home and want to do Biology, Philosophy and Psychology - all at A level (and not a fourth AS). However, I want to do Biology fast track A level this year (June 2017) and then Philosophy and Psychology Fast Track A levels next year to sit the exams in 2018. I am doing this just in case I really can't do them at home - so I don't waste too much money - however I am quite optimistic I will be fine as I studied until year 9 at home!
I then want to do a foundation/premedical science year at a university (provided my A level grades are up to scratch!) and then do med school! (Keele is looking quite promising??)
Apart from the fact I will be studying for quite a while yet - does this sound okay? Will it work? Has anybody got any similar stories?
Not everyone will agree with this I'm sure, but please, any opinions are much appreciated!
Peace and love,
