While I don't particularly want everyone to know who I am, I do want people to know why I am writing this blog, and it would be nice if someone could post me some comments to let me know that they are actually reading it. (Just longing for some loving really!)
I'm a third year biomedicine student at a University up north. I don't really enjoy my degree very much, but it's a means to an end.
You see, what I really want to do is study medicine. I know that there must be loads of medics somewhere wondering why the hell anyone would wish for it, but it's all I really want to do.
I've wanted to be a doctor since I was eleven years old, and I'm now 21, and still struggling to try and get in to med school.
I didn't exactly do stunningly at A levels. (Why oh why did I do Chemistry, Biology and Physics??????) and I only got CCC, when my only offer for medicine was AAB. Understandably, they rejected me, can't think why!
So they offered me a place on biomedicine, with the idea that I could graduate with a 2:1 and start on a post-grad medicine course, or even the regular 5 year one. I accepted the place, hate the degree and still don't look like I'm going to get into med school. Oh dear.
But, I do hold an offer at a medical school down south, so with any luck, shoudl I get a 2:1 I will be toddling off there next year.
