So I'm thinking of doing resits in 2022 and was going to take a gap year and apply for psychology for 2022 entry. But I've had a change of heart and I really want to medicine but it's too late to come up with a good application for medicine and do UCAT and BMAT well for 2022 entry. So i was wondering should i apply for biomedical sciences 2022 entry and do graduate entry medicine or 2 gap years and get more work experience and volunteering under my belt?

As a graduate who's starting A100 medicine next September, taking another gap year now is so much easier option. And much more financially feasible. If I were you, that's what I'd do.

I would also be careful because some medical schools say 2 gap years is disadvantageous so email them and ask

However disadvantageous, it will not come close to how disadvantaged students are when they come to GEM applications.

OP: gap year - always. Even if it's 3 gap years - it'll be worth it.
