    Hey guys,

    I'm applying for medicine and have my ucas application has already been sent off to my unis. Unfortunately, it has come to my realisation that when speaking about Hippocrates in my initial paragraph, I accidentally referred to him as "Hypocrites", how much of an impact will this have on my chances?

    If that's your only mistake I really wouldn't panic

    I doubt it would make that much difference. But can you not edit your application up to 14 days after its been sent?

    That's pretty funny to be honest. Just hope the admissions people also think so.

    Tbh I hope they do hahah, not sure how my form teacher as well as year coordinator (who is a history teacher) managed to miss it as well lol. Do you think it's overly noticeable?

    They definitely won't miss it as they read through it. That said, I doubt it would be too damaging to your application.
