Further your application

Applicants in the years above you have been involved in so many activities above and beyond their A Level (or International Baccalaureate) subjects. Extended Project Qualifications, work experience - both voluntary and paid, and your own co-curricular activities will help to shape you as a person and ultimately help you to understand more about this challenging yet rewarding profession. Click on the links below which will take you to the Applicant Club where some of those who have gone before you have shared some of their experiences.

Find support

Please don't hesitate to search for a mentor in the boxes below, or alternatively post a question in the discussion section within the Applicant Club. Everyone in the network was once where you are now and they will be happy to help you navigate the challenges of your application to read medicine.

Alternative Pathways to Medicine and Healthcare

There are many ways to work in medicine. Not everyone in health care is a doctor, and not everyone who goes on to practice medicine as a doctor has followed the pathway of high GCSEs, straight A/A* predictions in A Level sciences and all the rest of the work experience and extra curricular activities from their sixth form life. These pages include some alternative ways to become a doctor and alternative careers within healthcare to consider.

About Mentoring

Please search for a mentor if there is some specific support you are looking for during your application. Please also feel free to message members of the network through the messaging service. Please note that part of our safeguarding features are that messaging with under 18 applicants may only take place through the network messaging feature (and not through external channels) where messages could be moderated from time to time by your teacher administrator.
