19 year old polytechnic student, with a mediocre 3.20 GPA, no CCA whatsoever. My GPA cannot get me into medicine currently so I have plans to pursue an A-Level cert on my own during and after NS. Only then, will I apply for medical school. I participate in job shadowing at NUH, volunteer for TRYBE, I also write unpublished journal articles on interesting healthcare related topics out of passion for writing and medicine (from a layman perspective) and I've also worked in hospitals as an assistant to healthcare professionals in ophthalmology. How else should I go about polishing my portfolio to stand out from competitors when applying in the future? Should I pursue a life science degree and apply to graduate medicine instead?
