5th option if applying to medicineWatch
One of my friends applied for Biological Natural Sciences at Cambridge as his fifth option and got in, and he's deciding to do that and then do GEM afterwards, so there are many possibilities.
It is usually recommended to a subject that relates closely enough so that graduate entry medicine remains a viable option, if that's what you're aiming for. However, if you don't wish to go down this route, you could apply for virtually anything
what do u mean? i can only write 1 PS shouldnt this just be about medicine which is the one im primarily applying for
Most life science related courses will accept a medicine PS in any case. They make allowances for being the fifth non-med choice for applicants.
To answer your original question, your fifth choice could be anything. But you are more likely to be successful with something more closely aligned, (unless they accept a second PS as above).
if i want to apply to medicine, does my 5th option necessarily have to be something directly linked to medicine like biomed? or can it be something like neuroscience, biochemistry, optometry, psychology?
