    Hello!

    I was rejected from my 4 Med choices this year with an acceptance into Biochemistry with Molecular Medicine at the Uni of Notts. I'm taking a gap year instead to reapply, and I was wondering what everyone else was putting as their 5th option?

    Also, is it a good idea to pick a non-science 5th option (eg. Law or Economics) (will we still have chance of getting in with good grades but a Med PS)?

    Sorry to hear about your 4 rejections, make sure you contact admissions and request feedback if they do offer it to applicants. I never had a 5th choice since to be honest, I feel there a waste of time if your heart is set on medicine. A non-science option will never accept you onto their course with a medicine PS, most likely they will request another personal statement. Good luck!

    Thanks for the advice! I wasn't going to put one in initially but my school required it, and since this is my 2nd try, I feel like it's good to have a back-up.
