Re: Applying for 2019 Clinical Doctorate

If I knew I meet the criteria to be invited for a selection test then I started revising prior to the invites I think. I should say that I was starting from scratch in terms of revision hence starting before the invite!

Re: Deferring place due to pregnancy? Can anyone help?!
