    I think that the subjects required for medicine are probably considered more challenging than subjects required for law and ecomomics. I've always found that English, Accounting and History require less input than Chemistry, Maths and Biology.

    Strongly disagree. I picked So'ton over King's.

    In what way is King's better than So'ton... or Manchester.. or Keele?
    Kings is better as it has more presige, bigger research science labs and facilities and in the medicine table aswell bt so'ton is also good i didnt mean to understate any uni its just if we are being honest their are some med schools that are better than others and not jus because of differences such as pbl and traditional.....c'mon now people just admit it :sigh:

    Is going to kings going to make you a better doctor?

    If you had said "I liked it more", or "I think the structure of the course is better suited to my learning style", then fair enough. But all you've said is stuff that you think will have an impact on you, that actually has no impact on your learning.

    What about if location is a factor for the applicant?

    e.g. what if they don't want to study in London, is King's still a better medical school for them.

    The thing about medical schools, is what's best for one person isn't best for another, so it's unfair to say one is better than another

    I don't know because I didn't use league tables at all. I chose my place based on where I thought i'd have a better learning experience. One year soton came third after oxbridge for medicine in one of the league tables. So what? As long as the GMC say it does what its meant to and I like it then thats what matters.

    Why would I know why Cambridge is so awesome? I never said it was? :confused:

    Why is Med AAB in most unis if it is a really competitive degree? For example Law and Economics are very competitive and so are AAA at many of the top unis.
    Because the difference between AAA and AAB doesn't mean you'd make a better doctor?

    You've just feigned ignorance to ignore my point. There is obviously a disparity between universities in quality of teaching. Keep telling yourself that you got the same level of education as a student in another uni. Delusion is a great drug. Just because the GMC says the uni is fine, doesn't mean they're all the same.

    Goodnight.

    :yawn: I think a senior medical student knows slightly more about it than you do. Sweet dreams.

    I would hate to go to Oxford's medical school. Only medical science for 3 years and no patients? You're having a laugh. I'd far rather be at Barts or Peninsula.

    Oh right, just because she's senior, it doesn't make her bias at all?

    I chose the best medical school for me. I don't care about league tables. The GMC regulates them and thats good enough for me. So I just had to choose based on my own criteria. Which doesn't include some prefreshers (or anyone elsese) dumb ideas on what makes a good medical school. My educational level is determined by what I put into the course that I chose to go to. I turned down Kings for Southampton. I'd do it again.

    Oh and i'm deluded? At least i'm basing my knowledge on my experiences of medical school (more than one I may add) your experience of medical education is based on?

    Once again you've ignored my points. If you want to keep deluding yourself fair enough.

    And thanks for the rep. Incredibly petty but who am I to judge.

    No two medical courses are the same. You don't need a degree or even a *****y attitude to know that.

    Since the only person that can judge which medical school is best is the person that has done a medical degree at lots of places, i'll go with my original point. Go where you want. If you want a designer medical school that you can impress people with just because its called oxford or cambridge or imperial or kings then go there. They offer a lot. But since you don't know enough about medicine to know the differences in the course your assumption that certain places are better will be based on nothing more than league tables and assumed prestige.

    Of course i'm biased stupid. I chose one medical school over the other...Kings isn't rubbish. It wasn't right for me. I would have never applied to oxford, cambridge, imperial or any of the other ones that make uneducated prefreshers *** in their pants when they know nothing about them because the courses aren't right for me.

    Sheesh.

    And you're welcome.

    This.

    You chose a med school based on your learning style and personal preference. Seeing as they are all overseen by the GMC there isnt that much difference in content surely? So what is the significance of the league table, if there is a promotion of a pretty much [ok maybe not perfectly because that would be darn near impossible] uniform system.


    edit: and when I say Uniform, Im disregarding teaching style etc. You get me.

    I agree. It seems the only people who argue that medical teaching is uniform are those who don't go to the higher ranked schools and who quite frankly, in the majority of cases, wouldn't have got in had they applied. Harsh but true.

    At the end of the day, you will become a competent doctor regardless of the medical school you went to, but it's naive to think every medical graduate will come out at the same level.
