Posing on behalf of someone else. The situation is:

No offers for medicine 2018 entry

Oxford, Nottingham and Birmingham rejected outright without interview.
Manchester rejected after interview on 28 March (apparently borderline)

9 A* and A in English Lang
UKCAT 2640

Doing IB so results will be out in July before A level results and clearing.

Don’t know where to go from here really. Any help would be appreciated thanks

Always go through clearing, there are so many people who don’t meet their offer, or decline the place even for medicine, then my only advice would be to reapply for 2019, you might stand a better chance seeing as you have your IB results already

For the time being, assumng you get the required grades, the best option is to take a gap year and reapply for 2019 entry. If you don't get the grades but still want to study medicine, really your only option is to read for another degree and then apply to medicine as a graduate.

Update - went through clearing and accepted an offer for Medicine at Leicester. Has been waitlisted for Newcastle who say they may offer anytime from now to September. Leicester induction starts around 17 Sep.

Happy with Leicester but have read how Newcastle is a “better” university/city and is above Leicester in league tables for medicine.

So - assuming Newcastle offer a place before 17 September - what would you do? Leicester is one hour away (driving). Newcastle is 3.5 hours away on a good day! Any thoughts ?

Take the offer from Leicester. League tables mean nothing and Leicester has plenty to offer.
