    I applied through UCAS to Medicine about a week ago and I wasn't expecting any responses so soon but today I got a response from Edinburgh rejecting me for my 5th choice (Medicinal and Biological Chemistry) - I thought well that's but quick and they must have taken a look st my medicine personal statement and chucked it in the trash but I did phone admissions and they were like yeah we don't disadvantage you yet obviously they must do because I got rejected very very quickly - my grades are medicine standard so I just don't understand what happened - thoughts and advice please

    Are you taking Chemistry and Mathematics A level? A lack of a maths A level would seem the most likely reason for a rejection.

    If you're within 14 days of applying then contact UCAS and swap that choice to a different one - https://www.ucas.com/ucas/undergradu...-undergraduate
