    Hi,
    What if I want to send my UKCAT scores to more than 4 medical schools? I believe the UCAS permits just 4 medical colleges to be selected.
    I will be applying for the 2019 entry.

    You don't send your UCAS score, Pearson Vue do. And they only send it to places that you have applied (and you can only apply to 4).

    Exactly...What I meant was, is there no way one can arrange to send the scores to more than 4 colleges?

    I mean, to increase my chances of being accepted, right? Just 4 colleges, kinda seems to narrow down chances.

    You can only apply to 4. It won't matter if you send your scores to others, they will just ignore it.

    You will have the same chances as everyone else. It is why we recommend applying stategically.

    Universities will usually only accept your application via UCAS, meaning that you will not be able to apply to more than 4 medicine courses in any given year. Therefore it will not be of any use to you to send your UKCAT score to additionally unis as they will not have an application to go with it.
    You will have to narrow it down just like anyone else. Also, be aware that for this cycle the application deadline has already passed so if you have not yet submitted your application via UCAS you will have to wait for 2019 entry.
