Hi, my 14 year old daughter wants to attend a summer school (London or South East preferably) next year (2012). She is interested in medicine. She is G&T and attended a similar school at Imperial College 2 years ago. Imperial's summer school dates do not tie in with her school holiday dates and due to the fact that she is taking her GCSE's she doesn't want to miss a whole week of school. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Kind regards.
I do not know what response you would like. They can not reorganise the course for your dd. Are there other universities with similar courses you could look into? Your dd will have to decide how confident she is having time off from school. No med school will turn her down if she has not done this course. Can you arrange work experience in a GPs or hospital (this will look more impressive)-she may have to be at least 16 though.
