I'm currently in year 13 and very recently took an assessment (this is after I sent off my UCAS), which found that I have some visual processing issues and qualify for 25% extra time in my IB exams. I also applied to medical school this year and have had a couple of interviews with another one coming up next week, but no offers as of yet. My tutor at school suggested I inform the unis when/if I receive offers as it may affect my application if I tell them before, but I've heard that medical schools don't discriminate against students with disabilities. Should I let the unis know asap, as it may not look good if a prospective medic withholds this sort of information?

Personally I would say yes as it counts as withholding information and could look bad because the unis would easily be able to tell that you were doing it on purpose. I reckon if you just let them know, atleast you can know that you were honest so can be guilt free and hopefully they will be understanding of ur situation!
