I was thinking about it (and never say never), but I'm comfortable and well paid and I think becoming a student again would set my life back by a couple of years. I think you have to know. That's what they say about PhDs. Studying medicine is a bigger commitment than a PhD; 4 or 5 years in medical school and 2 as a junior, then more training. Still, it's a great career. I sat the UKCAT twice. Got 620 the first time. 740 the second. Buy a book, study the questions. It's fucking boring and might put you off applying, but a decent UKCAT score is enough to get you in. You'll have a strong application if you have shadowing experience in different departments, and long term volunteer experience in a hospital/care setting; admissions like to see that you're happy to do the menial jobs, because that's what a decent chunk of the next decade of your life as a student doctor will be.
