    my first choice was to study medicine but I didn't do the UKCAT or the BMAT and now I cant apply. not only that but I can't apply anyway because the deadline for UCAS has passed for all medical courses.
    my school want me to apply to other uni courses but I have tried and failed to find interest in other courses (especially biomedical science which is supposed to be similar) . BUT I am going to apply to paramedic science because I think that's pretty interesting
    I dunno what to do, should I just wait and reapply for 2019?? or just apply to paramedic science and go into that career
    I just need peoples opinion because my friends + family aren't really helping

    Hmmm, if it is your dream to be a doctor, I wouldn't 'settle' for something. Personally, I would take a gap year and then reapply next time around, you would also be able to spend a year getting more work experience which could boost your chances next year

    Apply next year if medicine is the subject you want to study. Or apply to an EU university.

    But your lack of knowledge about the deadlines and exams, suggests deeper issues with your application. Do you have the right grades? Do you have relevant work experience? Spend this year finding out about application requirements to make sure you will be in a good position to get offers next year.
