    I didn't get the A Level grades to meet my offer for medicine so now I am a first year biomed student and I'm hoping to get into graduate medicine. However, I've realised that I'm not really enjoying biomed that much because it's medicine that I really want to be doing because biomed is more training people to be lab-based scientists which isn't what I want to do, so I've been thinking that I would prefer to spend 3 years studying psychology rather than biomed. So what I really want to know is what are the chances of getting into GEM with a BSc in psych? Or should I just stick it out with biomed for 3 years?
    Thanks!!

    It's great that you have an end goal i.e medicine but in the mean time you do have to work out what interests you most to get a degree in. Psychology will also be about training people to be psychologists and will involve some lab work so make sure you know what you're getting yourself into before jumping around. You will probably also have to start again which will add another year to your wait to do medicine. I believe GEM can be applied for after any degree really as you will still be doing undergrad medicine.
