Hey Guys

I am going into Year 13 and want to do Medicine at uni but I haven't got D of E or NCS to put on my UCAS form or PS. Are there any alternatives? I do volunteering at my local care home and help out at a local children's learning centre. Is that good enough or can anyone recommend anything else that would be really useful. I'd be very grateful!

Just good work experience or an EPQ.

Universities really don't care about D of E, so many people do it that it's now irrelevant, it doesn't make you stand out at all.

Neither are relevant for Medicine.

I'm moving your thread to the Medicine forum for the experts there to help.

By it's nature D of E gives you valuable skills to include in your personal statement ( my daughter got in for dentistry and two paragraphs related to it. You have got the volunteer part though so what has that taught you? That is what you need to write about.
