    Unless you can fly back at around a week's notice each time, I'd suggest that it would be unwise to be out of the country for that period.

    It would be wise to let your medical schools know this in advance so they have the opportunity to offer you an earlier/later interview date, rather than just trying to rearrange if you're offered one within those dates.

    Do you choose GCE first award 2011 and fill in grades for 3 modules for AS OR do you choose GCE and put grades and awaiting results for your all 6 modules ??

    Thanks in advance

    I agree with Sarah-Becca's advice - email them. To that I would add...
    • come up with a stand-out subject line, because a lot of emails to med admissions remain unread at busy times
    • include your UCAS number in the subject line, so that they can match the info with your file

    Hi, I'm applying this year I got:
    AAAAB at higher
    AAA predicted advanced higher
    average 750 ukcat.

    Im applying to dundee, aberdeen, St. Andrews andEdinburgh
    are these reasonable, I don't want to waste places?
    I wouldn't apply to Edinburgh. I got AAAABB at highers and they said I wouldn't achieve highest score in academic section, so I'm not applying - waste of an application even though my ukcat is good and I have lots of extra curricular stuff.

    Oh right, the thing is I can't go anywhere else because of the cost. I get leaps to help me apply and they sent pre-application enquiry to edinburgh for me and the university said that I had good enough grades to apply so I'm just going to have to risk it.

    I didn't see the post where you changed the dates - that certainly eases the problem. But I've read a lot of websites where they say there is no guarantee that they can/will reschedule if an interviewee is unable to attend. However, if you email them to explain the constraints, they can take that into account when sending out invitations, otherwise (from their perspective) they'll have an interview slot and possibly be unable to find anyone to fill it. Do you think there is a downside to telling them? I did it, and there wasn't a problem.

    Hey guys, I need your advice.. Ever since middle school I really wanted to study medicine at Edinburgh, and so I worked extremely hard and finally got 45 predicted (IB diploma) and 720 from my UKCAT.
    But last week when I've talked to a career advisor who specializes in UCAS applications he said that it is very unlikely I would get into Edinburgh and told me to choose some other school like Nottingham instead, for "I should not waste one of only four applications for something as unobtainable as Edinburgh" (his words).
    Is getting into Edinburgh really that impossible?
    Hey, I've got 44/45 for predicts, and 812.5 for UKCAT, and my career advisor had no issues with me applying to Edinburgh, just in case that helps.

    Hi guys!
    Is it bad that I still havent sent mine off to ucas??? :/ Probably going to do it Monday now :/

    Also for Manchester, do they want grades for each unit? or would leaving it as 'pending' be fine?
