also would i be able to do medicine later on if i do nursing first in the UK?... if yes what would be the entry requirements... is that what they call graduate entry?
what if i decide to go to india to study medicine would i be able to get any financial help from the council? is india a good enough place to study medicine? can i study in india as a NRI plz help...
rite i decided to go to india but luckily i did my research and decided not to teh reasons as follows
1. the educations was better than the uk but no financial support there from the student council
2. the fees can go up to 30k
3. but its only the certificates if you mange to stick there for five years
4. after you come back in the uk you will be given an limited registration from the genral medical council and you will have to apply for placement from the hospital any really and work under an consultant or GP for 2 years and you will have to work at least 40 hours a weeks but it can go to about 70 hours inc overtime
5. plus before you enter the hospital route you have to do a huge heck of stressful exams and guess what this is where i stopped and said **** this i aint interested anymore
sorry, your possibilities of having a medical career are pretty much non-existent
Medicine is a pretty tough subject, for the best chance you would have to have A's in Maths, Chemistry and Biology.
Requirements for nursing are: 1 A level for a degree, or 5 GCSE's for diploma. This would really help, and there are all different areas to work in.
Have a word with a careers advisor
good luck x
I believe if it is really ur will.. u can finda way...
U can do it...just trust yourself! If u really believe u can...
Good luck! & I'l keep[ u in my prayer!
As someone else said, even though your heart is in it, there is no way you'll get into medical school with grades like that. Even students with 4 A's at AS sometimes don't get offered places; I cannot emphasise to you enough how competitive it is.
If you're sure you want to work in healthcare you will have to consider other options: you might have more of a chance in nursing - these are the entry requirements from the Royal College of Nursing website:
The minimum entry requirements are given below, but note that many universities will require you to hold more than the minimum, including A' levels:
* 5GCSE/GCE O levels, grade C or above (including English and a Science/Maths subject for entry to Midwifery); or
* 5 CSEs Grade 1; or
* 5 SCEs grade 1 (Scotland); or
* 5 SCE ordinary, grades A-C (Scotland); or
* GNVQ Intermediate level plus one GCSE/GCE O level, grades A-C; or
* GNVQ Advanced Level or NVQ level 3; or
* SVQ level 3; GSVQ level 3 (Scotland); or
* SVQ level 2 (Scotland) if the programme began after Sepetember 2000
* A Kitemarked Access to Higher Education course; or
* EDEXEL Foundation (BTEC) National or Higher National Diploma; or
* Passes in the Northern Ireland Grammar School Senior Certificate of Education;
* A qualification awarded by the NNEB dating from 1985, including the Diploma in Post-Qualifying Studies'
Some nurses do go onto further training, whether specialist or towards a Medical Doctor degree. I don't know about India - if it's an option for you (ie. you speak the language and have the technical vocabulary) then explore it, but I reckon it's unlikely for you to gain British funding to study in a foreign country.
Finally I'd suggest you really think hard about this. You're obviously a bright kid if you can gain an A in RS, but your scientific abilities are really not substantial enough at the moment for a career as a doctor (or you've had bad teaching). Perhaps you are more of an essay writer, and this needn't stop you getting involved in the healthcare world. With scientific A-Levels you could go on to journalism and report on medical issues; consider other career options in the NHS such as management and administration. Have a look at the NHS Careers site, and best of luck with whatever you decide to go with.
You never know, if you sit down right now with your textbooks and work hard the rest of this summer holiday, and work as hard as you can next year, you might get the results you want. It might sound like a lot of effort but that kind of dedication is exactly what might pay off.
