    I'm an international applicant.....I thought I had 5 choices for any Uni in the UK.

    Am I missing something here?
    Yes, as above, you have 5 choices but only 4 of them can be Medicine. The fifth must be something else.

    Well Oxford gives a 6 year med course....whereas there are universities with 5 year med courses.

    So technically....aren't those 2 different courses...so If I go with 3, 5 year Med, universities and 2, 6 year Med, universities....can't I go around the rule.

    Because technically they are all considered Med...but the courses are different.
    Is this possible for me?

    No because they're all Medicine. There's no magic way to apply for 5, everybody has to apply for 4.

    Hi does anyone know if I would be at a disadvantage if I applied to Oxford/Cambridge for medicine without higher maths?

    Doubt it, I know Cambridge medics who didn't do HL Maths. I think there's one college which asks for Maths, can't remember which.
