When applying to study Medicine I know you can only apply for 4 universities for medicine, so I'm going to apply for Biochemistry for my 5th choice. I don't think I would take the biochem offer if that's all I got, but I wouldn't want to cut off any options.
I went to the St Andrews open day and the admissions person said that if the personal statement is clearly for medicine, but you're applying for another subject, you're automatically rejected as there are other students applying whose first choice is the biochem course instead of only applying there as a safety offer. Is this the case for most unis?
I don't want to apply to a uni for my safety offer and be immediately rejected no matter what, so I was wondering if anyone knew which unis have this way of doing things?
