    Thanks, whenever you get the chance will be great.

    Ok am going to be as realistic as possible here but it doesn't seem as though you are academic enough to beckon upon the 6 year MBBS..


    there are lots of other courses...... why are you thinking about optometry? If you want to study medicine you should focus entirely on medicine or a related course such as biochemistry.... people seem to be choosing medicine because it is a " respected degree " and people want " doctor " status...

    No, but I have heard sometimes a uni may ask you for a separate PS if say your PS is all medicine but you are also applying for optometry. the optemetry uni may ask you for a separate PS for optomoetry. (Ive only heard this)

    Yes, for a highly competitive course and vocation such as medicine any hint of any other course will seriously hinder your application. As for vice versa, if the optometry course is not very popular or their typical grades are low you still have a chance of getting a place; but be prepared for a very awkward interview. So if you are thinking of medicine and optometry try and find a less popular optometry course.

    In all honesty, no. You have failed to show that you are capable of the academic requirements of the course, and you aren't showing any signs that you will actually get your 'predicted grades'. If you really want to do medicine though, then you may want to get in via an alternative route. Try nursing, science or another type of degree and get in via the graduate route. There's also a 6 year course in southampton with requirements of around BBC that you may get into.

    I seriously doubt that you will get accepted to med school, and in my opinion you will reducing your chances of becoming a doctor by applying.

    Just a question: Why don't you want to be a nurse? You will get a job with a strong sense of vocation, in the same workplace, with good pay.

    They can earn upto 40K. You can take the silver spoon out of your arse if you think that that is poor.

    Nursing is hardly the same as medicine. Ok socially nursing is more intimate. But medicine is rigorously scientific, more responsibility, so much variety in career.
