    thank you!!
    what inspired you to wanna do med?
    Well at first, it was due to money, as when I was around 7(or 11, I can't even remember) I wanted to (still do) move Canada and so I searched "highest paid jobs"(or something like that) and an ophthalmologist was one of them.
    However, as I actually did research on ophthalmology and different specialities within it, I actually became interested in ophthalmology and medicine as whole and would like to specialise in either glaucoma surgery or neuro-ophthalmology later on in life, because I think our eyesight is precious and I want help as many people possible to retain theirs.

    So, what steered you onto the path of medicine?

    we have the option to choose RS as a gcse, but i took the exam privately outside of school in y9 and got an A*. Therefore, i thought it would be pointless to have another RS gcse so i didn't take it. Everyone at my school has to do core RE but there are no exams or homework for it.
    uhhh i’m honestly jealous of you😂😂 you’ve been able to do some gcses early! i’m doing so badly with everything and i feel like everyone’s so perfect hahah😫

    bruh, you year 10s are really proactive, didn't even think about my gcses until mid year 11 -- actually thats a lie because I sat my chemistry exam in year 10 but you get my point. Never think you're not 'clever enough' or people are 'more clever than you' because overcoming that doubt is the first obstacle in itself; its more important than revision. good luck to you all!

    that's so cool! as a person who knows the struggles of having poor eyesight, that would be an amazing thing to do!

    why I want to do medicine, well all of my mums side are doctors and they are big inspirations to me as we’re all so close.

    also bc my grandfather was really ill with lung cancer that wasn’t found till it was at the last stage. this really upset me, and considering I was only 8, I was so driven to find a way to help others.

    most of that time was weekends spent in hospital wards which I found fascinating, even though it smelt kinda weird

    another thing was when there was a patient who had passed away in the room next door to my grandfathers and it just kinda shook me tbh. I could just hear people shouting and sobbing and I just wanted to do something but I couldn’t.

    now however I’ve become interested in mental health as it’s being finally raised in society as an actual illness. this I’m thankful for, as before I was just throwing around words like anxiety and depression without actually knowing what it meant, and making triggered jokes etc.

    it wasn’t till y9 when there was an anxiety attack literally every week at my school, where we had to look out for each other bc the government can’t teach us about the basics of mental health. it was a scary experience, but it just made me even more passionate about it, as well as caring for people.

    and the fact that you can travel all the way round the world and never be out of a job, bc people are bound to get ill some way or another

    well, I’ve just realised I’ve written quite a long essay. hope it doesn’t bore you too much😅

    hey! thanks for the advice!
    its kinda tough not to put yourself down, especially if your in a grammar school like i am. but imma just try and get the best possible grades, and i know that if i try and acc not procrastinate then it'll be enough.

    good luck on your a level journey! what inspired you to do med, and what unis are you thinking of applying to?

    you've got this! you have a great mindset and work ethic so the grades are practically already within your reach. + YOUR ARTWORK jesus

    thanks!!! and i'm actually enjoying a levels much more than gcses oddly enough, but I know that will change in no time. xD & med is one of the few professions that offer versatility: it's academically vigorous, challenging and competitive but this is counterbalanced with the satisfaction of knowing youre bettering humanity on a large scale. the thought of still remaining relevant in times of natural disaster, conflict etc. appeals to me, i feel like other professions may become redundant during times of crisis. all of this paired with my love for science just screams yes at med

    i'd love to study at Imperial or UCL, those are the main two for me. my teachers and parents urge for me to study at oxbridge but honestly, I dont think oxbridge is for me, odd vibes bout those unis in all honestly, as long as I'm studying medicine in a russell group uni, i aint complaining.

    Wow, that's a really great and heartfelt reason, and no you definitely did not bore me! I do agree with you on the mental health part, the government needs to realise that mental health should be talked about more in schools, especially to GCSE and A-level students.
