    Hi I've always wanted to do medicine since I was small and become a doctor it's literally my dream. I recently did my gcse and I feel like they're not good enough where as other people who are applying have got better gcse grades than me as well as that other people have done a lot of extra curricular activities. All I've done is work experience at Boots,play the violin and volunteered at a charity shop. I feel like I won't be able to do medicine. This is the same with my friends. What should we/ I do ?? Thanks

    If you don't mind me asking, what were your GCSEs and what grades did you get in each of them? (We need to know because what you don't think is good enough might actually be really good).
    Which A Levels are you doing? What grades are you looking at getting?

    Mhm.. Oxford and Cambridge are definitely out of the picture for you. Your GCSEs seem fine for most medical schools.

    What did you get in GCSE English Language, Maths and the sciences?

    I study BSc (Hons) Biomedical Science because I much prefer the science behind medicine rather than the patient-approach to medicine. I could never cope with the amount of stress doctors have to cope with, with rude patients.
