I have been rejected from all 4 medical schools. I have no friends in school. My parents are ashamed of me and don't want me to take a gap year as they feel it's a 'year wasted'. I don't know how my teachers will grade me, I did really bad in previous mocks. I just want to disappear. Literally have 0 motivation.

There are alternative means to get into medicine such as the pre-med route. My uni when I was doing my Biomedical Science degree offered it (UWE) to do it at Bristol if you done a load of extra work during your Biomedical Science first year. I didn’t apply and it is competitive but it is a possibility. 🙂

The course is offered to those on the Biomedical Science course only (or at least it was about 4-5 years back). 🙂

Sorry to hear that I think a lot of people here (me included) can relate to having underwhelming results and have experience with rejection. It hurts a lot and I remember crying tons after wasting a year in A Levels, having got like 3 Us and an E or something. I felt like an utter failure, but then I tried a BTEC course at a local college and had way more success. I enjoyed it more, and it led to university (I got rejected from my other choices), which I've now graduated with a 2:2. Not the greatest degree in the world. I've always struggled with depression and have zero motivation, so I'll take the result considering where I've come from and what I've experienced

I guess my point is that one bad year isn't the end of the world. I thought it was for me, but I found an alternative route, and it helped me massively. Maybe you should look at alternatives if you're finding your course difficult. There's so many options out there.

And sorry to hear that you're finding it hard making friends. Are you getting yourself out there? Are there any school groups that you could partake in?
