Hey I'm a student currently in my first year of A-levels and I'm currently predicted A*AA (STC after May exams) in Maths, Biology and Chemistry. I'm also taking AS Physics and completing an EPQ. I am applying for Medicine next year and taking the UCAT in the summer. Feel free to ask away!

well done! During a level, what is the best work experience to get for medicine?

How does it feel to know that your competition is going to be very intense (e.g. some students will be applying with straight 9s at GCSE and A*s at A Level, along with exceptional UKCAT/BMAT scores and a wealth of work experience)? Does it bother you, or do you relish the challenge?

I know I’m not op but I am bothered by this even with straight 9s and hopefully getting 3a*s predicted.

What are you doing your epq on?

The competition is going to be very high, but all you need is one offer

I finished my EPQ and should be on course for an A (hopefully not changed during the moderation process). My EPQ was on the accuracy of psychometrics (more specifically, the IQ test). It was a fun little project.

Just decide if after all that you want to practice medicine, because if you genuinely enjoy your job, then you'll never have to work a day in your life. But if you're only doing it for that Dr. title then your life will be misery.

I don't know yet - I'll wait until my UCAT result and if its a good score then I will do the BMAT.

Probably volunteering - if you don't have that (like me) then find 1 week in a GP and talk about that more in the interview and personal statement. It's not about the quantity of work experience you have but what you've gained from it.
