• Question: becoming a medic can be difficult as you need to master it first and you need to go to college and uni to get your masters and degrees, in my opinion i think that it could take a while for me to get to the stage that you are at now, as you are more qualified. How long did it take for you to be at the stage at you are at now, and what subjects should i study the the most to be a proper medic?

      It depends and what you mean by a medic really. To access medicine you ll need really high grades and work experience but most of the other medical professions have different entry routes and exam requirements. You definitely need maths and english and science subjects are good. My basic nurse training was 3 years and then I worked for a few years before undertaking a masters that took another 3 years part time. I ve also done lots of short courses in multiple subjects. Its always interesting.
