    I’m a year 12 student, achieved 4A* 5A at gcse, studying biology chemistry physics and maths, sitting an AS in physics in May 2018. I volunteer weekly at the hospital, and I have organised 2 weeks gp work experience and done 2 days work experience in the hospital. I’ve applied to all hospital work placement schemes available.

    What do I need to do next to get into medical school?

    Is this a joke? Well you need to book your place on some admissions exams and then apply to four medical schools (to which your application is strong) in the coming UCAS cycle. Maybe start thinking about your personal statement.

    When it doubt, use google.

    You sound like you know what your doing, but other things you could do that you may mention in you PS and interview are - wider reading eg. Books, recent hot topics in the news, student BMJ, attending lectures/events, online courses etc. extracurriculars are also important for transferrable skills and showing you are a well rounded person eg. A leadership role/a role of responsibility, team-working maybe in a sports team etc. The things you do don’t need to be directly related to medicine as long as you can relate the skills you develop to medicine. If you rly need something to do you could familiarise yourself with the structure of the UKCAT and BMAT, maybe looking at practise questions - although you rly only need 4/5 weeks to practise.
    Other than that, focus on your grades and researching universities
