    Hello everyone,

    I just checked my PC after submitting it through UCAS and I found a grammatical mistake. Instead of saying 'Shadowing with doctors has given me' I separated them into two sentences by mistake, 'Shadowing with doctors. This has given me..' Do you guys think I should contact the universities about this? I am so worried right now! I would appreciate if someone can answer my question.

    Thanks all.

    You’re not applying for English. Unless you finished your sentence with “attention to detail “ they’re not likely to care.

    Don’t draw attention to it.

    i realised i had a grammatical mistake too after sending, though it was a less noticeable mistake (plural/singular mistake) i still got offers. it was a small mistake, but reading it out loud would sound a bit awkward

    Seriously - don't contact the universities to point out your mistake!

    Chances are that half the admissions tutors that read it won't even notice.

    I wouldn't point it out to them, some tutors may read it so quickly that they do not even register the mistake.
