5th option when applying to medicine?Watch
Biomedical is a good course to use as a backup given it is relatively short at 3 years and many people do it as a backup to medicine.
Pharmacy is a big no no at the moment given it is going through some uncertain period. Also, pharmacy is a very tough degree and it takes a minimum of 5 years for you to become a pharmacist. If doing medicine is what you want, then stay away from pharmacy.
I don't see see why you can't do paramedics, but something like optometry, biomedical science etc are also good. Choose a subject that you think you will enjoy so that you will be more likely to put in the effort and get a good grade and who knows, maybe you decide to stick in it and not do medicine. Experience can change perspective quite alot!
Hi, I aspire to do medicine at uni but I'm really unsure of the options that could lead onto medicine as a 5th option. The most common seem like biomed, biochem, psychology, pharmacy and pharmacology. Can these lead onto medicine? Also, would placing paramedic sciences as a 5th option be a very unwise idea (can I progress to medicine from here?)
But it is usually our advice that graduate entry medicine is so competitive, that you'd be better off taking a gap year and reapply to undergraduate medicine.
