    Hi

    Im not sure if this is the right place for the question. Basically i want to go to university to studying medicine but my GCSE's are not quite high enough. This is because, at the time i had a brain tumour and severe neurological problems and my neurologist told me this had almost definately contributed to my poor academic performance. I was told by my UCAS tutor that i would be able to apply for extenuating circumstances so that my universities will take my illness into consideration, Please tell me if this is right? I dont want to waste my time applying to University if i am just going to be rejected.

    Thanks

    If I were you, I'd contact all the universities you want to apply to and ask them, and see what they say
