    Is it possible to be rejected from all 5 uni's that you have applied to on UCAS?

    Yes, but that's only the case if you're over ambitious (& unrealistic) or just stupid.

    You are mistaken. Clearing is for people who had offers but failed to meet the requirements. UCAS Extra is for people who get five rejections.

    I find it shocking, the number of people who are applying for medicine and then apply for biochemistry at UCL or something along those lines. Surely getting into UCL is incredibly competitive, and by no means a guaranteed in?

    I have got offers for G100 on Baths and Bristol. Predicted grades are A on Further Maths and A* on Physics. I have already obtained A* on Maths. I did not apply to Warwick by mistake. Is there any way that I can re-apply? Could I apply by Extra or wait until clearing if Warwick still got places available. Does anyone know if there is any chance? I have confidence that I will get A* on Further Maths.

    You would have to decline the offers you have in order to apply through Extra, even supposing that Warwick is in Extra for G100, which is pretty unlikely, I'm afraid, as are the chances that there'll be places in Clearing. In practical terms, you choices are to stick with what you have (what do you mean, you "did not apply to Warwick by mistake" :confused: ) or to reapply next year. You can decide on Results Day not to go to your firm if you want to, but reapplying is not a risk-free option.

    but if you are good enough for medicine and just unlucky you should probably get a place. most medics tend to be pretty arrogant about how good they are and would see it as guarenteed i guess!!
