We had an admissions officer from Edinburgh University in the other day and he said that from this year on, we are only allowed to apply to 5 courses through UCAS... Is this true?

I thought this was for people applying to medicine and dentistry. If you applied to 4 medical/dental schools then you were only allowed one backup choice. Didnt know it was accross the board.

Thats just as well because I could only find 4 courses I want, and at least I now only have one more to figure out!

Yep, 5. Gah. mad.gif

What I do like is the fact that the different universities can't see where you've placed them, so x doesn't know if it's your 1st or 5th choice smile.gif. Makes it much more fair IMO.

you don't have to fill all your choices you know! i know someone who only applied to 2!
when i'm dancin' with you,
tomorrow doesn't matter,
turn that music up,
till the windows start to shatter,
cos you're the only one who can get me on my feet,
& i can't even dance

You don't have to choose 5. You can choose up to 5. I'm applying with only 4 choices.

You are even allowed to make choices, send it in and change your mind later and add some more, though I think they do not allow you to remove choices.
