My daughter wishes to study medicine but has no offers this year. she does however have an offer to study Neuroscience for AAB. If she firms Neuroscience but ends up achieving the AAA, can she be released from the offer for Neuroscience and try again for Medicine next year and take a gap year instead?
Answered by Alison Patterson
Thanks for your enquiry.
There is a facility to withdraw from UCAS after results but your daughter will lose the definite Neuroscience place too.
If your daughter re-applies for Medicine next year there is no guarantee of success so she needs to try to be clear with herself the reasons for rejection this time round.
Good luck
