Ok sooo....

I've been reflecting on this journey and I've realised a lot of friends of mine who wanted to do medicine have all dropped out. I've survived this long, and I feel like its time for me to bow out of the race too. I've been having doubts whether to continue as others around me doubt whether its possible for me to get in. Of course, leading to me in believing them and just feeling like its time to end this journey. I'm seriously contemplating whether I want to continue this journey or not; its been a great ride and all, but it is a lot of stress but that's what I love. But I love medicine as a whole but I'm seriously doubting my abilities now. I'm losing hope.

If I was to continue heres where I'd apply to now:

  • Hull York
  • Bristol
  • Lancaster/Leeds
  • Keele
And Queens as a back-up to study Chemistry and biochemistry. Whether its time to let the journey end, I cannot be sure....


  1. I'm really inspired together with your writing talents as neatly as with the format to your weblog. Is this a paid subject matter or did you modify it yourself? Anyway stay up the excellent high quality writing, it's uncommon to peer a nice weblog like this
    one these days..

  2. Hey, I'll tell you one thing you shouldn't do - and that's let others dictate your life. Why are you bowing out, because the statistics don't add up or the wrong number of A* grades? Medical schools aren't looking for robots, they're looking for compassionate humans. My friend recently got an offer at both Liverpool and Birmingham. She got 4 A*s, 4 A's. She's now moving into liverpool, bless. Im currently applying to med school and I've got 3A*s and 4A's. I'm part of the Social Mobility Foundation, the Realising Opportunities scheme and I've been to TONS of lectures from Cambridge to Nottingham, I feel all that I've done now can't be for nothing. Surely if I didn't know it'd feel right I'd give up much earlier. Onwards and upwards!

    1. Amazing! Thank you so much, you've really inspired me. That's so weird! I'm also part of SMF and RO! Woop, I've done loads too! Thank you so much, that really did cheer me up! :) :)

    2. Totally welcome! Take care, chick :)
