    Hi there, I'm just wondering something. I'm about to go into the 3rd year of my current degree, but I'm looking at doing medicine after this. I don't have any A-levels, only an access course, though I'm easily on track for a 1st in this degree.

    The current plan is to apply for 2019 entry for the graduate courses and 2020 entry for the 5 year, to allow me to save some money. I also plan to do a chemistry A level alongside the degree to meet the requirements, which I feel is doable.

    However, let's say my first choice for the 5 year were to reject me, and my second gave me an offer (both deferred entry). Would I be able to hold onto that 2nd choice offer, try to get another A level in and boost my personal statement, then reapply for the first choice in the next cycle?

    Or if I wanted to try and make myself more of a candidate for my 1st choice, would I have to reject the 2nd choice and reapply completely in the new cycle for non-deferred entry?

    You can't apply whilst holding a deffered offer so you would have to give it up to reapply.
