    i have acc considered veterinary as i love animals but the prospect doesnt appeal to me as the human side becuz originally i wanted to medicine to go into emergency med or derm but now ofc im confused. ive considered biomed but its not the research i dont like but optometry and physiotherapy seems pretty cool and pharmacy ive heard its hard to get a job in it i did wanna bea firefighter at one point as a child but im not really physically fit for it 😅

    I have a friend going through the exact same crisis,the only problem is that he's in year 13. However there are ways around it, my advice to you is gain as much experince as you can in year 12. Once your in year 13 make sure your personal statement is not solely on medicine but branches out to things such as optometry or degrees that are related so you can apply to these courses and not just medicine. I know some students who applied to medicine but were not accepted but there grades were still top notch and got into biomedicine and other good courses on the clearing list. So don't be to hard on yourself!

    You should gather work experience in hospitals and apply to the Sutton trust summer school that's runs for year 12s. Optometry and physio would be extremely helpful when coming to your personal statement. Easy work experience like working in a shelter for animals or with the elderly will be helpful too as it shows empathy and adds to an ongoing list of skills. If you don't reach the required grades you can also apply to gateway to medicine/dentistry/veterinary medicine, there is always a way
