    Totally theoretical. ..... If i was to pass the access to medicine course at Manchester College with distinctions all round (course starts Sept 2016) , but then was not offered a place at medical school (because the chances seem quite slim!) .... could i/should i then apply for the COWA access to medicine course (entry Sept 2017) and do the whole year again since it seem more likely to result in a place at medical school.

    I applied late so missed the COWA deadline but have secured a place of the manchester college course....

    I know my question may sound a little ridiculous but I don't want to waste this year by not attending Manchester and really hope it works out BUT am aware that COWA seems to have the highest success rate.

    Thank you in advance for any advice.
