Mature student needing some advice
I'm 26, and have only recently plucked up the nerve to attempt to go into medicine. My UKCAT score is 660, which I'm fairly happy with. However, I don't have any Science A-Levels. And my actual A-Level results aren't particularly fabulous (240 points on the UCAS calculator). I feel I could explain myself if I managed to make it to an interview, but I'm nervous that I won't even get that far. I work in a hospital and have the support and references of some of my Consultants, which should hopefully help me stand out a bit. Would I be better attempting to do a 6 year course, including an Access to Medicine year, or really jus...

Premature Worry Wart =(
Hello, I would be very grateful if anyone could shed light on the matter of Leicester's Graduate Entry experience requirements. At the time of application, I will have 6 years of experience in caring/nursing roles and have been working full time, paid, in a hospital for 3 years but only a few months of this experience will have occurred post graduation as opposed to the 'minimum of 12 months' full-time paid employment in a caring role following graduation' stated. Does this mean I have to take a year out following graduation in order to achieve the requirement? I'm all confuddled. I did call admissions but I didn't...

Financing and loans
Hi, I'm in my last year finishing up my second degree in speech and language. I've been looking around at how one would finance the graduate entry program, and can't find any solid information, so was hoping people here would know more about this. Basically, I thought that if doing a second degree, the only entitlement is a basic maintenance loan (which is my current situation). However, when I used the calculator on student finance, I gave the KCL ucas code as a hypothetical to see what it would throw up, and it's given me a maintenance loan, long course loan, and a full tuition fee loan. I made sure to include my prev...

Some questions
I'm an IGCSE candidate getting my certificate mid 2014... I'm hoping to get into St Andrew's medical school. I've been told that i need to go through a "Pathway to medicine" program, but i've been doing some research, and i read that only 5 who finished the pathway program are accepted into the university... which really troubles me.... I'm quite skeptical about doing the pathway program, especially since there's such a low % of people accepted... I need to know, really, what are my chances of being accepted into medical school if i go though the pathway program? Thanks in advance. (Source: New Media Medicine)

Studying medicine as a mature student (mid-30s) with a young family - is it possible?
Hi - I'm in my mid-30s and considering changing career from law to medicine. It is something that I have wanted to do for many years, but it really is now or never for me.

My husband works fairly long hours so I will be calling upon family and forking out for a nanny. However, how all-consuming is the course (either the 4-year or 5-year course)? Is there much self-study which would allow me some flexibility? Would I have much (or any!) free time so that I can see my...

Help required where can you do trainee ambulance qualification in Glasgow
Im older (36) probably don't have the correct standard grades but i have about 80 scotvec modules and a hnc. Looking for a career change and always been interested in becoming a paramedic. Understand you need to do the trainee ambulance technician year one then the 2nd year if successful, but how do you get onto this course. i cannot find anything about it anywhere except that on the Scottish ambulance website it says no trainee ambulance places available. Any info would be brill. I'll have a read at some of the other posts later on to. Thanks (Source: New Media Medicine)
