Updated, thank you. :adore:
If you see that they've tweeted again with anything linked on their website about this could you let me know?
I'm happy including social media statements from unis but fuller statements on their websites would be preferable if they're available (obviously not yet in this case).

I'm sure that they did post something on their website earlier but couldn't find it, when I just checked. I don't imagine that it will have changed, however.

Oh I'm sure it won't have - but I had checked their website following your original post in the other thread but couldn't find it myself.

Only a very small amount of colleges have not made a statement yet.

Alumni, including elder son and all his friends, bombarded their own colleges with protest emails, which, I hope helped.

Thanks to the alumni, colleges and Oxford University itself, for a great team effort!

If you see Lancaster's response then I think that will give you some idea what unis are generally saying about medicine but you need to check with your own uni to see if they will at least guarantee to offer you a deferred place for 2021
