    How interesting. Surely a deliberate ploy to catch a few highly qualified candidates missed elsewhere. I can't believe they didn't have enough applicants to fill the spaces.

    Pretty much a scam, they under-filled places to get the oxbridge/imperial/UCL firm offer missers.

    My thoughts exactly! Surely they must have a waiting list too?

    That's BS - all medicine applicants regardless are highly qualified. There's no reason a uni would do this just to get UCL's offer holders and whatnot.

    The thing is for medicine I would firm the lowest grade offer, no one cares if you did medicine at Cambridge or SGUL for that matter.

    But some people have this issue that they are better if they do medicine at oxbridge, which makes no sense to me.
