What should I do?

    • Thread Starter

    In 2017 I hope to be going to university to study neuroscience. There is obviously a time gap between then and now. I waswondering whether it is possible to go directly into med school rather thangoing down the graduate route.
    My grades aren’t the best but I have extenuating circumstances

    3A*s, 8A’s and 1 B for GCSE

    ABC a level (bio, chem and physics)

    So under these circumstances would I be able to skip the graduate route and go directly into studying medicine?

    Also is neuroscience a good degree to do which will prepare mefor medicine and life as a doctor?

    Yes, you can apply for non-graduate entry medicine if you have a degree but you won't be entitled to student loans. Unless your family is very wealthy then graduate entry medicine is realistically the only option if you've already done a degree.
