    The traditional route is doing A-Levels at college and then using that to apply for medicine courses. I feel if you are applying for apprenticeship, you have a certain career in mind already. Sometimes at the end of the apprenticeship, you may be offered a job, so I am not sure how useful it will be if you want to study medicine at university.

    I don't know if this is something that might be of help, I had a look on the internet and there are apprenticeships available with the NHS for health related professions if it interests you: https://www.healthcareers.nhs.uk/car...-cadet-schemes

    Unless it involved doing either A levels (unlikely) or a degree (not common), then no. To do medicine you need qualifications because the first part requires a degree and academic ability.

    You could do an apprenticeship and then go on to study.

    The other warning is that the vast majority of medical schools are very serious about wanting A levels sat in a two year period. They do not like applicants who have taken longer.

    If you arent going to cope with A levels now, then imo bail out or at least talk to your teachers.
