Hi guys, I haven't seen a thread so far for people hoping to apply for ucas extra this year. This is often a stressful aspect of uni applications that nobody really plans for and all of us anticipating for February 25th to roll around can support each other, answer questions and give advice !!

I'll start, my name is Annalise, I'm a gap year student who wanted to study Law (was second-guessing the course a lot to begin with) however I did not get into my top choice so now I want to look for alternative courses on extra! Really hoping for Kings or UCL to be on extra this time.

Some ice-breakers if your comfortable in answering of course,

Why did you decide to apply for extra?
What course are you hoping to find, what was your original ucas course?
What unis are you especially looking for in extra?

Hope this helps,

Annalise

Hi thanks for creating this thread!!

I originally applied for Medicine I've received 3 rejections out of 4 but I don't think I'll get an offer for the 4th either. Instead I'm hoping to get into Pharmacy at Lincoln University through UCAS Extra.

Would love to know about other people's situations!

Don't withdraw!

You are still much more likely to get something from your waiting list than relying on Extra / Clearing
Thank you for the reply, however I forgot to mention I’m not applying for medicine in UCAS Extra, but for Accounting / Finance / Economics. It’s unusual, but I’ve applied to medicine twice now, and if I don’t get in, it’s not for me.

Hey! I've applied for Psychology and have 5 offers for a course I don't want to do. I'm hoping to get into International relations with Business Management at QMUL.
Good Luck to everyone applying through UCAS Extra!

It is highly unlikely either of these will have many courses in extra

He would need to reject his offer and then apply through ucas extra. You cannot ap0ply through extra if you are hoiding an offer.

Omg I'm in the same position: have you narrowed down which of those you're gonna apply for? I'd really appreciate any advice

Hey! So I’ve applied to dentistry but it’s really competitive and didn’t get a place as I only applied to 3 universities. I am looking at applying to diagnostic radiography via ucas extra. However my personal statement is all about dentistry. Will that put me at a disadvantage? Also, is diagnostic radiography a competitive degree?

Any help would be appreciated!

You can ask a university whether they will accept a new PS directly. Be warned diagnostic radiography is likely to be oversubscribed and difficult to get into.

Thanks for your reply!

Is there any other similar courses that aren’t as popular? I know physiotherapy is really competitive too. Any advice?

Swansea University offer a range of courses in their Medical school which are usually available in clearing. These courses are probably available elsewhere as well. I know in the past people have been applying for diagnosttic radiotherapy and coming oon here having been rejected with grades above the requirement which is why I told you. There have been students on here rejected for Physiotherapy this year..

Bristol sometimes offer these to medical students who dont get in but I dont know whether they are full
