According to oxford, you will be no longer on the medicine course…
But it depends on the uni. What uni do you go to

it’s a london uni without wanting to go too much into depth, but i’m doing 5 years in total.

i read that and i am part of my clinical years so i’m not sure if that’s still applicable? would I be able to redo the year?

it’s a 5 year course and i’m in my second clinical year (4 years in total),

would they consider me to resit the year would it be worth exause i’m not sure. I did have personal issues during this year but it wasn’t something valid to put as EC so i did not do it during then but i’m not sure. I’m sorry i’ve just had a bad year and messed up this time but I have done well so far
