Hi all, long time lurker etc. I got into a London medical school in the nineties with three Bs at A-Level (Maths, Physics and Chem). Preclinical years went well, but upon hitting the wards it all went wrong. My parents were in their 40s when I was born, and by the time I was in university had a host of chronic conditions slowing them down. I have no siblings. I was making a 400 mile round trip each weekend to check on them and these weekends got longer and longer to the point that I would regularly attend college three and a half days a week. Long story short, not long after my father died I went home to discover my mother unconscious on the kitchen floor with breathing difficulties. I didn't formally leave medicine, or fail an exam prompting my expulsion; I just drifted away with nothing to show for it but doctor sized debts on a call-centre income. Up until her passing in late 2006 I acted as primary carer for my mother. A decade later I miss it. The flatmates that I used to best at exams are now specialist registrars and GPs. I wouldn't know where to begin on re-applying, or even if I've got a shot, but would welcome some advice nonetheless.
