    Right....
    You can advice me on here or even PM me if you want I don't mind because I NEEEEEED advice there's just so much confusion in my head right now!
    My teachers in year 13 loved me, believed in me etc, predicted me A's and A* for A level (for med), however, because of EXTENUATING CIRCUMSTANCES and doing the exams I don't think I got the grades (realistically thinking). Unfortunately, I have NO evidence for my extenuating circumstances mannnn (depression, anxiety), I basically suffered in silence and didn't seek for help but I'm good now after ages.
    Now I don't know what I should do, I have no evidence and I don't know how to get it??, and I need to consider other courses just in case..
    Pharmacy apparently is a popular back up, but if someone doesn't see themselves serving customers and doesn't want to work in retail, is it actually the right course? According to my parents I should do pharmacy and I'm ''apparently'' being ungrateful because I keep saying I don't want to study that and that etccccc...Biomed has no jobs. Applying as a graduate to med is too expensive can't do that. I really don't know what other course to do that I will enjoy
    These thoughts are killing me because I know I was capable and at the same time I wanna DO a course I enjoy

    Well to start with, stop thinking about what course you're going to do at uni if your mental health problems are affecting your academic performance NOW. It's not going to magically go away and you'll suddenly start doing excellently on any course at uni. Speak to your GP, explore the options with them and focus on improving your mental health.

    Once that's out of the way, you will be in a much better space to determine what course you may want to apply for and are able to apply for.
