Applications for admission to Medical Schools
in the United Kingdom.

GOVERNMENT has been informed by the
Secretary of State for the Colonies that com-
petition for entry to medical schools in the United
Kingdom continues to be very keen and that almost
all schools receive far more applications than they
can accept. In order, therefore, that Colonial can-
didates may have the maximum opportunity of
succeeding in the competition for medical entry, it
is necessary that the papers of all medical candi-
dates desiring admission in 1955 should be in the
hands of the Director of Colonial Scholars by the
1st July, 1954. Applications for all the London
schools in particular must be received by the 1st
July, to enable them to be considered and effective
entries submitted by the due date. This applies to
an increasing number of the provincial schools.
Intending candidates from Grenada should ac-
cordingly submit their applications through Gov-
ernment in good time so as to avoid the delay and
disappointment which would inevitably be caused
by late application.
