Sorry the title isnt very detailed, cant fit a lot in the character limit.
I’ve asked this question in multiple places, Im trying to get a broad spectrum of opinions and advice.
Unfortunately, in my teenage years I was unable to sit my GCSEs due to illness and many other factors in my life at the time. Recently however, Ive been getting a lot better and Im starting to get my life back on track.
At present, it will take me 4 years to gain my GCSEs and A levels. I cant take more than 2 GCSEs this years due to other commitments so Il be taking the remaining 5 or 6 next year (it might be 6 because the college I plan to go to next year doesnt do a chemistry GCSE course, so Il have to take that separately at a private college). Il be taking the following at GCSE: Biology, chemistry, psychology, math, English, health & social care & computer science.
For A levels, Il be taking: biology, chemistry and psychology.
I’ve been in touch with a couple of medical schools and I’ve had some generally good responses. However, I want to make absolutely sure I have the best chances possible at having a successful entry. Im worried that my unconventional path will be a problem for me.
Any advice on what I can do to make my future application more appealing? I’m hoping on getting some shadowing experience before applying, in addition to (hopefully, it depends on how things pan out) some work as a HCA to gain some hands on clinical experience.
