I wanted to ask what your motivation to study medicine was?

It’s something I’ve always wanted to too but time is not on my side as I’m above 26 :(

I have always loved the idea of helping people when they're most vulnerable, coupled with my love for biology, anatomy and the human sciences. However saying that, right before my applications, I came to a decision that life in medicine was not for me for many reasons and declined my initial offer. 

It was the subsequent work experience and shadowing I had done, as well as speaking to many other muslim medics in the field that cemented my desire to pursue medicine. Alhamdulilah it was a good decision. 

FYI I was also a mature student when I started medical school, as are a sizeable cohort of my medical school colleagues. It's not too late, If you wish to do medicine, my advice would be to go for it!

All the best!
