    Hiya! I'm aiming to study medicine once I've wrapped up sxith year (I'm currently in fifth) but I'm a tad confused about when to apply? I've been browsing through a few university websites and some are stating that entry to Medicine isn't considered after fifth year however I've been told that I've to apply after I complete my highers and am in sixth year. I would really appreciate it if someone could clear this up for me, thanks!!!

    Hello
    By this the universities mean you cannot start the course until you have completed sixth year (i.e they will not accept people who apply to start uni at the end of S5).
    Assuming you don't want to take a gap year, you would apply for the deadline of 15th October 2017 (medicine, vet med, dentistry and Oxbridge UCAS deadline is earlier than other degrees), in order to start in September 2018. This would be just after you start S6, in order to go to uni straight after you finish school.
    Hope this helps
