they can't not accept o-levels, they are still a qualification.

look at unis you could be interested in and look for information about mature applicants- there should be something there.

i'm 23 and have just gone back to college. all i did was phone the local college to find out if they did any courses for mature students. i am now doing a health science course that will get me into medicine, its only a one year course but its pretty intense.

I already have 11 GCSEs and I left school when I was 17 (half way through A-Levels) because I moved away from the area and decided to get a job instead of starting a new college (the town I moved to was quite small and I couldn't continue two of my subjects because they didn't run the courses). I haven't got O-Levels crikey they aboloished them well before my time.

Try the Access to Medicine course at King's College. It's the same as the 5-year course but just a year more that's all...

Yeah, it takes more. usually 10 or more years. You take a pre-medical course, then the med proper. Then you become an intern, a resident, and you specialize on whichever field you would want.

Umm medicine degrees are usually 5 yrs - 2 yrs pre-clinical and 3 yrs clinical.

And medicine graduates don't get grades (1st 2i, 2ii etc) they just pass or fail.
