Okay so I am doing Biology, Ancient history, Psychology and English Language I really want to go into medicine I have been passionate since like 12 but I don't know why but coming up to my GCSE results and choosing my A levels I was ruling out medicine and decided against doing it and was thinking of a research career preferably biological in hope to do a life sciences degree and then a postgrad. I did achieve grades to do chemistry but decided against it as I thought I wanted to do life sciences and I didn't NEED chemistry for some courses.
Anyway it seems my heart really is set on medicine and I really want to do it I have been building up on my work experience and have recently got involved with a programme I think would really help me on my application.
My problem is is the limited amounts of universities that offer the foundation course I am looking at Manchester as that is my closest uni and honestly the university I have wanted to go to since I learnt what university was.
However I obviously can't just apply to one med school and I realise the level of competition.
Does anyone know of any med schools near manchester uni that offer pre-med courses? unfortunately Sheffield have stopped their course
Does anyone have experience or know anyone that did a foundation year and how did they manage to get onto it?
Any tips and advice please would be really welcome
Oh by the way I have asked my college if I could do chemistry but they said it was too late
Is this true?
