Hi guys I started my first year at university and was getting first class honours throughout the year. I had sorted out some voluntary work for myself as I was keen on getting into med school. Things went wrong half way through and my performance declined. Some unforeseeable events occurred and after seeking professional help, they had suggested that im not fit enough to give the exams and that I take an entire year off and get better then come back. But the thought of not progressing to 2nd year and seeing ervyone I know make it to their 2nd year really upsets me. and seeing as i want to go to med school, this plus the gap year has made the process longer than it already is. Ive lost my confidence and my self esteem is lowered. I have a feeling that id be so afraid of going back to uni that I may not go altogether.
