    If I was to apply to medicine with the following: completed NCS and done voluntary work through it, doing gold dofe, school student ambassador, first aid course, forget me not volunteering, one week hospital work experience, epq. Realistically, would I have a chance? What else can I do to boost my personal statement

    If you can write about your experiences and what you've gained out of them, your personal statement will be fine.

    In reality, your other stats (GCSEs, BMAT, UKCAT, etc) are more important than your personal statement, so no one can give you an idea of where you'd be most successful or whether you'd have a chance at getting into medicine without these.

    That is true, thanks for the advice. I got 4A*, 5A and a B at gcse and I'm currently just starting A-Levels so I have no idea myself as to what I could gain in the UKCAT or BMAT
