    What do you mean the options? Do you mean for travelling there?

    Suck it up and go you're making excuses for yourself not to. Take the opportunity. Why apply when im presuming you knew you would have to travel?

    If you're passionate enough about Medicine then I recommend you go, regardless of what the rejection rate is. You could end up being one of the few who get an offer. Book a hotel nearby for the night before so you'll be well rested on the day of your actual interview.

    Go for it. I just had an interview in Glasgow on Friday and I live in London - it's worthwhile if you want an offer. If you're worried about the cost of getting there, ask your school if they'd be able to reimburse you.

    Good luck

    Alright,thanks guys... I guess its just the fear of doing really badly and when you've got a 5 hour journey to dwell on it by yourself.

    I had an interview five hours away one week and three hours the following week. I travelled up the night before with both of them and returned home afterwards. You’ll regret not going if you don’t.

    If you are eligible for funding for studying elsewhere in the UK, you will be eligible for funding at a Scottish university.
