Record numbers of would-be doctors are signing up to study medicine.
New Ucas figures show a six per cent increase on the number of people applying to take a degree in the subject, compared to last year.
The deadline for applications to begin medicine, as well as dentistry and veterinary science courses next autumn, was on October 15.
This is also the deadline for potential students to apply for degree courses at Oxford and Cambridge.
