The non-medicine courses give out offers like candy.

Another reason no one should apply to a 5th, non-medicine choice.

Otherwise you would have been eligible for UCAS Extra / Clearing (and sometimes medicine goes into it), now you're not eligible unless you withdraw.

Yes, hence me shouting from the rooftops for the last few years: don't apply for a 5th option!

If you hold a random offer you can't go through UCAS Extra / Clearing... you can always withdraw your non-medicine choice though.

Another thing that I have been saying all the time... the schools don't care that graduate entry medicine is much harder if you did a random degree; nor do they know that medicine goes into UCAS Extra / Clearing occasionally.

They only want their students to get into a university, any course. Students going on gap years (even if it means it's easier for medicine) makes it look bad for them, so they discourage that.

And yes, you can withdraw your offer... I would advise that you do it sooner prior to results day if you wanted UCAS Extra. Never ever do a random degree for graduate entry medicine because it'll take longer, cost more and (most importantly) will be much, much more competitive. So you are not going through with that anyway,

100%. All med schools welcome a productive gap year.

I got an offer for maths at warwick after exactly 2 days. I think they literally put my application through an automated system that checked if I met the entry requirements and gave me an offer haha
