I'm in a bit of a dilemma because I want to apply to uni this year but I'm not 100% decided on my course so i'll choose the one I favour most and then if I change my mind, I can change my mind and take a gap year.
I take maths, further maths, chem, biology and so all my options are science options:
or more mathematical like...
-accounting and finance
I think I would find the science options more interesting to learn about, but when it comes to finding a job I really can't see myself working in a lab for the rest of my life. I don't know if I like molecular science as much as learning about systems of the body and disease. I'm not sure if the lifestyle of a doctor will be too much for me, but I'll get some work experience and if I like it I'll apply in 2019. Are there any courses which are like medicine but less 'intense'?
Also, if you get rejected from a course like medicine in your gap year, can you reapply early for another course seeing as you've already got your a level results? This would avoid having to take a second gap year to reapply again.
Also, I have 12A*s at GCSE, and if I prepare well for my UKCAT with lots of work experience and achieve A*A*A at A level, but not be great at interview, what's the likelihood of getting rejected from a lot of medical schools?

If you are not great at interview you will get rejected yes. Good GCSE and a level results should help get the interview though.
