I am stuck doing a degree that I find boring, not taxing and not stimulating in any way. Don't think the intake of people in my year is very good and think the standard of learning is poor. I go to an RG university, doing a STEM degree. I can't drop out of uni or change to a different course as I'm not interested in anything else, don't want to do an apprenticeship or go straight to work. I'm only doing this degree because I didn't get the grades I needed for medical school, so I'm only doing this degree to do GEM later. Just finding this degree an absolute drab, uninteresting and feel completely unmotivated. I do not think I'm learning as much as I could be, don't feel challenged at all and the only thing I'm getting out of this degree is a piece of paper.

If you need the degree to get into medicine then you’ll have to stick with it and find some way to stay motivated to keep getting excellent grades. You could try taking on a research assistant role, being involved in research especially something related to medicine could help show commitment to your education and should be more challenging so might help motivate you. Maybe try and get your work experience sorted so you are ready to apply to medicine in your final year.

Just to point out even graduate entry medicine usually looks at A-Levels, so you will still need A/Bs but if your in a RG I expect you have them.
