Medicine degrees offered through clearing 'for first time ever'


Whilst I understand the feelings and fears of medicine going to clearing, on a personal note my son obtained 12 A* GCSE's but didn't do as expected in his A'Levels and got 2A's And 2B's therefore was turned down by the medical school he had obtained a place at. He has consequently completed a BSc and still is keen to go into medicine and has again successfully obtained a place. The point I am making is because this is his second degree we now have to find £9k a year to find him through his medical training. Had this option been around 3 years ago this could have been the way forward for him so do agree with it and think it's progression but again accept this is on a personal note but is a valid option for students still surprisingly keen to go into a medical profession.
