    I was wondering if my back up choice has to be chosen at the same time as the rest of my choices.

    I've applied to vet med and I sent my application for my back-up choice (animal behaviour, welfare and ethics) along with my vet med applications. It's probably easier to do it now if you know what you want to apply to

    Hey there,

    I applied last year, and seem to remember that you could add a fifth choice as long as it was before the UCAS deadline for other courses. Best to check with UCAS if this still applies, though
