    Hi guys
    do you HAVE to put a non-medical major as one of your choices or is that only a recommendation?

    Thanks

    You MUST
    Within your 5 choices, only 4 of them can be used to apply for medicine.
    The remaining one has to be another degree.

    You're right that only four can be medicine, that doesn't mean they HAVE to put a fifth choice down. They'd be wise to, but it's not compulsory.

    Unless you're smart about where and what you apply for, within medicine there are many different degree's and the 4 choices only are for the A100 and graduate etc However if you chose to apply for a medicine degree that has a foundation year i.e Durham has one then you can technically have 5 choices ahaha :') somehow it won't take up one of the choices !

    so we cant do 5 A100s?
    But like we can do 4 A100s and like one A101 right? (or any other combination of that sort)

    Not sure exactly which A101 courses are allowed but play with UCAS loool and see which A101 course it allows but I do know that you can definitely apply for 4 normal / standard medicine courses and have a 5th choice as Durhams medicine course that has a foundation degree (1 year). I know someone who did it that's why, I'm applying this year so I'm not sure which one exactly
