    Student finance pays for the first 4 years which includes tuition fee, bursary and loan.

    The NHS currently funds your 5th year (& onwards if applicable) which includes tuition fee and a means-tested bursary. Student finance also gives you a reduced maintenance loan.

    'Also' ? You'd only be in debt with SF You don't have to pay the NHS back

    And of course you have exams Depending on the med school you attend, you'll be having regular exams in all five years I think

    From what I understand, your 5th year is mainly placements where you put all of your knowledge together and deliver care to patients but you'd be better off asking someone who has recently graduated from medical school
