Got rejected from one of my uni and I feel like I am going to get rejected by all others due to my low UCAT. I will take a gap year if that happens, any suggestions how can I improve my application during my gap year.

Please don't bump old threads as it's against our forum's rules.

The answer is yes, of course. It's probably worse seeing as competition has jumped up since COVID.

I am writing on behalf of my son who applied to study medicine in Aug, 2022, we have got 3 refusal from the 4 universities we applied, what shall we do? We are in gap year this year because we moved to UK since May, 2019, we will not meet 3 years in the UK the first day of academic year thus we are in gap year this year, we can't afford to wait another year, please advise.

Hi there.

If you truly are set on getting into medicine, I strongly advise taking a gap year and reapplying. During your gap year you could volunteer/gain more work experience as well as spend more time doing UCAT/BMAT and interview prep to help strengthen your uni application.

Doing another degree for the sole aim of doing medicine is not only more costly but also significantly more competitive and riskier than applying as an undergrad.

Best wishes.

If you haven't applied to a random (biomed etc.) course, you could still have a chance to start Medicine later this year via UCAS Extra / Clearing (it's not easy, but it's not impossible).

Otherwise, take a gap year and reapply for 2023 entry - you're in good company, use this thread to discuss with other Gap Year students applying for Med 2023 entry: https://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/sho....php?t=7138571

Hi there, I have received 3/4 rejections (Exeter, Edi, Cardiff) but still waiting to hear from St Andrews. I thought I had decent stats and PS with 45/45 predicted IB score, 2730 B2 UCAT, but I guess I was wrong. I honestly don't think I really want to study medicine anymore, if I can put in so much work already and still feel like a failure while all my other friends are getting offers and interviews for medicine and other courses. It's making me think that I didn't go into medicine for the right reasons, I feel that I went in to validate myself and try and achieve something I could be proud of, and because of the job security medicine has.

But I'm constantly second-guessing myself because medicine does really really fascinate me, but I genuinely don't know now if I can deal with the stress or length of medical school and subsequent training. I also haven't been able to get any real-life work experience because where I live medical placements are banned bc of COVID (still have UK status tho), so I feel unprepared to understand what I'm getting myself into. I'm contemplating St Andrews to ask to change my application to a different course, regardless if I receive an offer to interview. But I honestly might feel motivated again to study it if I do get an offer, but maybe that's a sign that I'm fickle and, yes, I am just doing it because I am deeply insecure and studying medicine will validate me, in which case I probably shouldn't because my commitment isn't genuine. I have no idea what to do and I think about this constantly, I don't know if I should take a gap year and try and reapply.

Easy - you take a gap year to improve and reapply next year.

Never ever do a degree with the sole aim for graduate entry medicine. It'll take longer, cost more and (most importantly) will be much, much more competitive.

I've taken a gap year it's really depressing but I do agree with what ur saying. Its 100,% worth it at least for med.
Half of my class went into biomed with BBB and r now hoping to apply for med....but 3 years of debt and then another 4 years of medical skwl debt would be a bit too much

And sadly, out of half of your class most of them (statistically) won't get in on their first go!
