University and medical questions


I am about to apply to the universities now but I wonder if itīs worh having a medical class 1 examination before enrolling? The reason for this is that I am planning to get a degree as a backup but I would like to know if I can become a pilot or not. If I canīt I might leave the studies for a couple of years and think about what I want to do. If I pass the medical exam I can choose a degree without problem since itīs only a backup.

And what if I chooze to study something that hasnīt got physics and mathematics included. Will this make me forget the basics and give me problems with the ATPL later on?

I would say get your medical now to find out if flying is even an option. I wouldn't bother with university unless you are planning to study something you are actually interested in and will likely have a use for in the future.

I don't think you need to worry about maths/ physics, if you have the GCSEs to get into a university you will likely have the capability to do the ATPL already.
