    Default Want to study Medicine - marks between 70-80%. Read

    Hi

    Anyone who is interested in studying Medicine but didn't get accepted into Universities in South Africa can contact me.

    I'm studying in China now. I'm the only South African here. I am at Zhejiang University. You can look it up on Google. 2nd ranking university in China in 2010.

    minimum of 80% with A's in Maths , Physics and Bio.

    Between 70-80% , you can still apply but you might not get accepted.

    Let me know if you are interested. I can help you submit applications and stuff. It's kinda lonely being the only South African here.
    If you want to study Medicine or Engineering and didn't get accepted in a SA University , you can contact me for more information.

    How were you denied study if you received 80% for those subjects?

    in SA, you need at least 6 A's minimum to even get on the waiting list so I can see why options out of the country might be attractive

    hey bro. i am not selling it. i am just saying.

    plus there are some guys in SA who are exploiting it and sending students to certain Universities that are not even registered on IMED or WHO and then they also have to study subjects in Chinese.

    So i just want to let people know. I am not selling it. If i was , then maybe i'd start up an agency and start recruiting people. I am just letting those people out there know that even though they might not have achieved adequately in Matric , that if u have that belief inside you that you can make it as a doctor, you have a possibility of studying it in a foreign country

    By no means am i saying dont study in SA. cause i'd sell my left nut to go back in history and kick myself in the ass to study harder and not pay some much attention to sports , get 7A's and study in Durbz

    I know someone with 7 A's who struggled to get accepted for physio therapy. On the other hand I know someone with 3 A's who was accepted for physio therapy at a few universities. Both of them were white btw.

    So u saying its okay to study medicine in another country when you can't make the cut in your own country.
    If you have a burning desire to be a medic, but didn't get 6A's in matric, you should still try in another country.

    I don't get this logic. Who are u trying to impress when u qualify one day?

    I would have liked to study Medicine. Unfortunately Maths and Physical Science were not my strong point.

    there are not an infinite number of places for medicine in this country. quotas still exist officially or unofficially so i see no problem in pursuing your dream out of the country. if you come back later, write the equivalence exam, and practice here, why have a problem with that?

    O pleeze.

    I'm currently a BSc student and even though I struggled at school, I'm finding university easy and doing well - then again you do not know the circumstances surrounding my matric results or anybody else for who your comment is aimed at.

    Also if UNISA could offer medicine, then we would not need prospective doctors to study at foreign universities. This is reason why entrance is so strict in this country, we do not have the resources (actually few countries have the resources). The only options left for many top students is to go to countries like China or Cuba.

    Give the guy credit, instead of just shrugging his shoulders he's actually doing something in order to follow his dream. Also if you are going to let your school marks dictate what you can and cannot do for the rest of your future then you're an idiot.

    Its really comforting to know that my gp, cardiologist or neurologist got thru med school on standard grade maths or physics.
    But, he/she had this burning desire to study medicine.

    Yaaaaay, Idiocracy.

    Only idiot here is you. If the person passes all his university courses, completes his internship, passes equivalence exam it means he has what it takes.

    What you are saying is that if I got 60% for maths & physics in school I cannot become a astrophysicist even if I somehow managed to get into a university somewhere and persevered until getting a Ph.D. Even with a Ph.D I would not be competent purely because I got low marks in school which negates any further achievements.
