Getting into medicine is definitely not the easiest, but with proper preparation, you can really increase your chances of getting in!
Typically people apply from sixth form after A-levels but your journey might be unconventional, and that’s completely fine (mine was – read about it here). The important thing is to put yourself in the best position possible for applying.
The whole process takes around a year. From writing your personal statement, to submitting your application, aptitude tests, interviews and then securing the grades needed for your offer.
It can be really useful if you know someone who is also applying, to encourage each other and practice interviews/test each other. If you don’t know anybody who’s applying, maybe try reaching out to other applicants on sites like The Student Room.
