    So, I only have one medicine option left, and one neuroscience, the rest rejected me. My PS is obviously Medicine based, not neuroscience so not sure if they would take me anyway.
    What alternative courses would be best to apply? They offered me Pharmacology(find it a bit boring) chemistry,
    biology,
    applied anatomy,
    cancer biology and immunology,
    medical microbiology,
    virology and immunology,
    physiological science,
    cellular and molecular medicine,
    Which one am i most likely to actually get a proper job in? And not as hard as I might not even like it? I will try to call them to see if they can consider me for neuroscience, anyone has done that or knows more about it? Any info/opinions would be great

    Sorry to hear that. You must be disappointed.
    I would have a look at the details of the courses and find the one that is most interesting to you. The best one is the one you can enjoy doing and get a first in. Some of them might funnel you into a scientific job (medical microbiology, virology/immunology), others would give you a more general background (biology) and more options if you're unsure about what you might want to do. I think that a first class degree in any of them would keep your options more open.

    As an aside, I think not getting into medicine may end up being one of the luckiest things to happen to you. It's a difficult job at the best of times; these are far from the best of times and are getting much worse.

    Best of luck.
