Angry Problems with PTAL application

My university was filling the L5 form and the core clinical subjects did come to a total of 40 but after adding the non core subjects, the total only comes to 70 weeks. The minimum requirement is 72 weeks. I asked the registar to put radiology in for 2 weeks but she refuses saying it was only theory in class...

Should I submit the L5 form with a total of 70 weeks only? Or is there any other way.

Please help me.

you cant send the documents first of all , your med school has to do that. And the answer to your question is yes , send it and then call them.
