Year 12 Work Experience

Hi, I’m a current Year 12 student studying A level Biology, Psychology and Criminology at a sixth from, and am currently doing research on what university I’d like to go to and what course, and I landed on Biomedical Science with the hopes of being a forensic investigator. I am now researching Year 12 Programmes that would help me get into this course, does anyone have any recommendations because I’m struggling to find any, thanks.

You dont need 'relevant work experience' for Biomed.
It wont make any difference to your UCAS application.

Just do something/anything that gets you out of you current comfort-zone, and gets you used to talking to and dealing with different sorts of people - because you will need these skills whatever job you end up in.

What will impress a Uni is reading/learning beyond your current A level syllabus - have a look at these Moocs (short free online Uni level courses) -
