Medicine Degree?

    • Thread Starter

    I want to become a pharmaceutical scientist, but i'm not sure if taking a medicine degree is the way to go. Is it the right path?

    Also, not even sure if I would qualify for a medicine degree. I've only taken double science at GCSE, at which i am predicted an A*. I then want to take biology, chemistry and geography a level, with either a physics or german AS... will it work?

    I'm don't know about the first part but doing double science wont hinder you at all. As long as you get A*/A you will be fine, also your A-levels are perfect for medicine. Be wary about taking physics to AS, its hard subject so maybe take German if you feel it will be easier to do well in.

    Medicine is the degree to become a doctor.

    If you want to be a laboratory scientist, you should take a basic science degree like pharmacology or biomedical sciences, biochemistry, chemistry, etc
