Asking for advice. I have sat the GAMSAT twice-Sept 18 & Mar 19. I got a 55 and 58 respectively. I received an offer for UL last year and turned it down as I wasnt sure if it was something I wanted, I am quite good friends with a doctor and she hates it-shes perhaps the nicest calmest person I have ever met and she told me a story one day how she got so frustrated and angry trying to book a patient a test they needed that she ended up throwing the phone against the wall! She, and other doctors I know have agreed that what makes a good doctor doesnt seem to be caring about the patients, or even have a lot of medical knowledge but moreso being a competitive bully whose able to get sh.t done, even if it means screwing other people over....thats not me. I know a few doctors, and it seems true, they actually all hate their jobs, but the ones hate it the least are tough, somewhat intimidating people, who make sure they get what they want. So I am very on edge and not sure if medicine is for me. However I like having the option open to me, incase I get some epiphany between now and August
However, I have lived on the west coast of Ireland all my life and want to move to Dublin. Moving to Limerick...well it disheartens me. I don't want to do it. However I am pretty certain I wont get an offer for Dublin with only 58 points. I dont know if I should resit the GAMSAT? Its on my mind, however I dont think I have enough time to prepare-I work full time. Does anyone have any opinions? I can still register until the 10th. I just have to pay a late fee-I really dont think I will be able to beat the 58-when I got that score I had studied for the GAMSAT a few months previous-its been a year since I sat it this time, Ive probably forgotten everything!
