Banging my head against a brick wall

So, I've had another university offer. Again, for a paramedic course which I still aren't sure if I want to do. Again, a course from which I was initially rejected and now have an unconditional offer from.

I've now got 2 paramedic course offers and 1 medicine offer. All the places potentially being mine for the taking to start in September.


So why am I banging my head against a brick wall?? Because I still don't know a) whether it's medicine or paramedicine for me, and b) which paramedic course is best for me.


Both paramedic courses have their pros and cons; they differ in length, final qualification and personal attributes that they demand from me. Until yesterday it was pretty clear to me which I would choose. Unfortunately I had been given some dubious information and now the decision is a lot foggier....


Dammit, why can't I just have a crystal ball that will tell me what to do??!!

(And the reason for the wonderwoman knickers?? A) Blogger wouldn't publish my post for some reason, and B) I need to be wonderwoman sometimes)

It is a sociological fact that students are not a drain on society but actually help mask unemployment levels and work in the favour of our economy. Ah look how useful Sociology is as an academic subject.

Which university do you have an offer from? I got your blog address from AF. I'm a 1st year at Kt myself.

I think if I weren't studying medicine I'd have liked to be a paramedic... that doesn't really help thou does it ;)

I presume the medicine offer for a 4 year graduate entry program?

Anon: Unfortunately I aren't going to say where my medicine offer is, or where my paramedic offers are because my blog is anonymous too!
Lauren: nah, medicine is 5 year because I didn't sit the GAMSAT, and I would prefer to do 5 year anyway.

Well having 4 days of a 5 year course left I say goodo! The BM4 courses are kinda scary, you get thrown into everything very quickly!
