    Hi,
    I'm an A-levels student, right now I'm studying psychology , sociology and English language. I have previously given the three sciences in my o-levels. I at fields thought international relations and law were my passion, but as I go about it I have realized I am still very indecisive and so not want to make any irrational decisions. After some thinking and talking I was told that perhaps the sciences were a good decision even in my a - levels. However, I am worried that my grades are not good enough if I want to pursue medical. I had the idea that I should retake my o level this year and then in the oct/nov that follows I'd give my A- level sciences. However that might draw me back. I'm unaware of the requirements of the universities for medical in international unis and if it is possible for me to do this any other way or possible at all. What is the best possible way to approach this?

    Do you mean medicine? You'd need some sciences as alevels for medicine, and your current choice of subjects won't be adiquate I'm afraid

    - Get some work experience to make sure medicine is for you.
    - You need chemistry A-level to get into any medical school at school-leaver level.
    - There are ~33 medical schools in the UK so it won't take you long to look at the entry requirements for each one.
    - Google will be your best friend.
