    If by 15, you mean 15 days of work experience, definitely try and get more experience at hospitals. And whilst you're there, talk to some of the doctors or medics you work with because hearing what it's like from their perspective will hopefully help. I did 2 weeks of work experience at a hospital as part of a project, and hearing what it's like to be a doctor from an actual doctor really did change my views. If what they say confirms what you already know, I'm sure you'll be a wonderful surgeon. In terms of academics, you seem to be fine Also, it's never too early to start revising. The earlier you start, the better it will be for you in the long run

    Ohhh, right. Makes more sense. A week is good, considering you're only 15. But when you're older, you'll want to look for a lot more experience. Your academics are good for the profession you're heading for, you just need to make sure you get your predicted grades. You don't necessarily have to get all A*'s to be a surgeon, but you can try. And see if you can talk to people outside of your family; you'll get a much less biased opinion
