    Hi... I'll get straight into it. I'm now on a gap year and reapplying to med. I got an offer from kcl for biomedicine last year and I deferred that until 2018. At the time I deferred it I was not aware that you can either keep your deferred unconditional offer OR reapply and not both. I'm applying through the sixth form I attended and I have been emailing my teacher who only happened to have sent my ucas application today. Then I recieve an email from ucas saying that I have to cancel my unconditional offer or my application will not be considered. I would actually cancel my unconditional offer at kcl but today is friday and the deadline for med application is after tomorrow sunday. I have sent both kcl and ucas emails telling them about the situation but obviously my offer would only be cancelled on monday earliest so past the deadline. What do I do? Is that it if I missed the deadline?

    Just ring UCAS as soon as you can. Not sire they are open over the weekend, but Monday will be fine. Explain your situation and take their guidance. I imagine they will have discretion.

    If youd checked you can see they are open tomorrow 9am-2pm

    Start calling at 8:58.

    Don’t ring UCAS, they’ll tell you to ring the uni, phone the biomed department today, when I phoned the department I had my offer with they cancelled my offer by the end of the same day

    What do you have to lose by trying?! Just call, and if you can't get through find another number and call that, and if everything fails call UCAS. Call everyone, stop wasting time!

    They are open today- look at my post
    Its a UCAS deadline so your task is to create a paper trail to say you made it in time, especially if the uni isnt open. Thats why UCAS is open today. By all means try the uni afterwards, but UCAS are the people who confirm your application is on their system.

    It doesnt matter if UCAS te.ll you to ring biomed, he fact is you are on record.
