I'm a CBSE student currently in class XII. I've wanted to study medicine since grade 6, which is a good half of my conscious life. House M.D is what initially inspired me :D
I really want to study at the best universities possible. I've looked at many US and UK universities but I've run into a few problems:
1. A couple of counsellors have told me that the US is a long shot (they don't really like medicine tbh). My marks have been pretty decent/good so far though, and I hope to do really well in my boards.
2. UK universities seem to not recognise CBSE. I've called and emailed a few of them but they've refused. This is weird because someone from my school got into UCL a couple of years ago (for engineering), and he told me that it's not impossible for CBSE students to go to UK universities, it's just much harder, but he doesn't know too much about medicine.
I'm planning to take a gap year.
Can anyone give me some more information about CBSE students with respect to UK (preferably) and US universities? I've been mostly drawing a blank so far, and the few signs aren't encouraging - in a weird way though, the difficulty just makes me want to do it more. I REALLY want to do this.
Advice from a former CBSE student would be ideal :D
