    Thanks I love u for saying that dude.. Im actually doing four AS's this year- bio, chem, phys, and USE OF MATHS. Use of maths is equivalent to AS maths and is stretched over two years, but to be honest i hate it and i regret that i havent chose the normal math.. I usually get what i want and medicine is the only thing I want to do so:cool:
    people who are dedicated to medicine tend to get there in the end, best of luck!

    hmm true..I think we know who the kid is here, considering his bedtime is 10pm...

    dw, i've reported him for abuse and harrassment, i was just interested if he knew about the psychology course's content..i seriously doubt a 5yr old can grasp the concept of free will, determinism, reductionism and freuds psychosexual development theory..so ha

    Sorry it started out well meaning, I only tried to correct him on something fundamentally wrong, but it went downhill from there...

    Nvm, as long as the OP knows to disregard his advice as it was based on little/no knowledge or experience, he'll be fine. So OP, go for it, get good grades in your AS so your predicted grades will be high enough, and get a bloody good reference out of your school . Tbh, psychology sounds interesting enough, the only reason I didn't do it was because I'm crap at essays lol

    Remember, don't do medicine cause it sounds good, do it because you want to make a difference...really question why you want to do it, if you find a good reason that'l be your motivation to get those grades
    I know.. this is so true, this IS where I get my motivation from, I will do anything to become a doctor. I'll do a degree in biomed if needed or take a gap year. Again, thank you for the good advice and I want you to know that all of you (except for one guy ;P) have changed my thinking and have given me hope.(sounds pathetic, but imlistening to LOTR music atm and im getting emotional xD)

    lol cool
    i was going to do medicine (YES, just with one science at a-level, but i had chemistry at AS) yet decided it wasn't for me and i wanted a speciality instead, go into your work experience open minded, not wanting to just do medicine but look at other NHS careers aswell

    A little pointer but you might be eligle for the foundation courses run by southampton and uea .. there might be others as well ...... my friend just got an offer of ccc for medincine with a foundation year at southampton. but certain criteria have to be met . another option is to do a surgical applicances 2 year course then switch to post grad med degree. again my friend was in simialar situation well predicted cbb and didnt stand a chance on any traditional route in to medincine.
    competition is pritty tough though, like over 30/40 to a place possibly more.

    good luck and dont give up and make sure you have loads and loads of work experience.

    have you done a medicine degree?
    I've had friends who have done biology, chemistry and art who've had 3 offers..no AEA'S and AAB at a-level. so i'd shut up, get your facts right and just piss off if you have nothing better to say

    thats the foundation year course ... because obviously there are alot of people who would like to do medicine without the grades and as the course has become more widely known (its been around for a couple of years i think) competition has pritty much doubled every year. but its not impossible ...my friend did it. but she had gone on a medcin course, worked in an nhs old peoples home, done work experience with children in a nursery home and possibly some other stuff as well as a really good letter of recomendation from the head of our school. which was in addition to the reference.

    she had quite a few really good extra curriculars as well. chairman of scouts, salsa dancing helped out in school shows etc etc. just build up all that stuff to show your committed to helping people and get an awesome personal statement, if you do extra at school you should get a really good reference which is really important.

    the surgical applicances is mainly people that didnt get grades to do medicne directly and i dont think the competition is too big for that.

    That sounds like the competition levels for graduate entry medicine I think, I personally don't know the actual numbers, but they sound about right. So if you really want to do medicine you need to do everything within your power to try and study as an undergraduate; competition is still high, just not that high
