Hiya, so, I came to UK less than three years back as a refugee due to persecution by Taliban. I struggled a lot learning a new language, leaving friends and family and settling in a whole new system. Everything was really hard. I missed a lot of GCSE content and it was a struggle to catch up with something in a language you don't know even know how to speak. BUT, after a lot of breakdowns, fighting with bullies and failures and anxiety, I managed to get average GCSEs. I am in year 13 and have sent my UCAS application for medicine. I just wanted to ask do I have any chance getting into medicine as I do not have much knowledge about how the unis work so, i want some help from you guys as I am really stressed.

Firstly I have to commend your dedication to Medicine, but here's my usual spiel:

There is a specific thread made for these questions.

Persecution due to Taliban?… Unrelated to post but the Taliban had no authority 3 years ago unless your from Qundus, even then that was simply fighting not persecution.

The links on that thread come up as "PAGE NOT FOUND" for me for some reason.

Polite reminder to avoid posting in languages other than English unless you also provide a translation, (aside from in the Foreign Languages forums or the International Lounge).

Sorry, I didn’t remember reading that I couldn’t post in a foreign language but that’s fine. I said:

“Hello sister, do you speak Pashto? Where do you live? If I can help you then ask me. Hope my Pashto is okay. God go in front of you”

I’m have a basic level of Pashto and don’t practice that much hence why it sounds a bit weird.
