I am currently putting all my efforts into going for Medicine, I feel that if post a gap year I still fail to get in, I will be lost in terms of options, so I am currently looking into backup plans B,C,D and Z.

I have yet to fully understand the life science degrees, and I feel put off from them as although I feel I would definitely enjoy the degree I am concerned about graduate prospects.

What I wanted to know, is the impression I have gotten so far, is that if you are unable to get into Med school but you still want to do an undergrad. degree your only REALISTIC options are the life science degrees. But the only degree I really, currently, have any kind of affinity to is, chemical engineering, but because I am so focused on Medicine there is no way I can take time to look (work exp) for a career I don't even know I can apply for (with a realistic chance of getting in). I am worried if I need another PS which I definitely won't have, as you can imagine that time period is extremely stressful for wannabe medics (UKCAT BMAT etc.) can I even do a second PS? that's how lost I am in terms of what I can do.

Many thanks in advance,

The Sudanese Prince,

Hey buddy
My friend applied to UCL and got an offer for medicine, she also applied for Chemical Engineering at Imperial which is quite competitive and she got an offer with her medicine personal statement.

Thanks for the reply, would you say that's a common occurrence, like something I can rely on or is your friend one of extraordinary circumstances, I'm guessing she would have to call them about the medicine personal statement.

I wouldn't say that it is common but it isn't also uncommon.

My friend had A*A*A predicted. I don't know if she called the uni about it though

The Sudanese Prince,
If you have the required grades in the required subjects, you should have absolutely no problem securing offers to study engineering. Engineering courses generally have very high offer rates to those who meet the requirements.
