    Hello
    I have just finished my A levels at a Sixth form college. Last year I applied for medicine 2009 entry and received 4 rejections. The plan has been to apply again this cycle for 2010 entry but I am still in 2 minds for a number of reasons.

    I have thought for a long time that I'd like a career in banking. It has never been something I have followed up or researched in great detail because I caught the "medicine bug" when I started sixth form and have focused all my energy on that so far. I have no work experience related to banking or finance. I have heard about gap year programmes run by banks but I assume I am too late for this now. Any information or advice would be appreciated. (My A Levels are Maths, Biology, Chemistry, I also have an AS in Further Maths at Grade A. I'm predicted AAA)

    Thanks in advance

    Because having doctor status means you're above everyone else including investment bankers...
