Is there an option to be awarded a BSc in Medicine if you decide to drop out after 3 years? Does this vary for different universities or does the same rule apply to all? If after 3 years you dont get a BSc do you get another degree type?

I vaguely remember that some places give you a BMedSci or equivalent :unsure:

I believe that for the traditional courses you do get a degree like that, not sure how it works for the integrated ones though

I believe at my university you can do a academic conversion course at the end of three years and go 'to the cutting edge of a field of your choice', or whatever. Don't know how good it is. We also get a BA after three years too, though.

We get a Bsc(hons) after three years whatever. You can then do a runner with it if you wish.

You really do make it sound like a smash and grab job when you describe it like that.

At my university you would get awarded a BMedsci if you exit the course after Year 4. I don't think you would get anything if left after Year 3.

At most unis you would get a Bsc or BMedsci either after the 3rd or 4th years.

Depends where you go. The unis that still use preclin and clinical years would do this anyway.

I suppose being known in India, Bangladesh, Pakistan and amongst Asian communities in Britain, Canada and the USA counts as international enough for Jay-Sean but sadly not enough for me to warrant dropping out of medical school for.

Although I was a bit peeved I missed the deadline for applying to become an extra in the new Harry Potter film. A Hollywood career almost beckoned :p:

I could imagine someone turning up in a balaclava to the graduation ceremony and snatching the degree from the Dean's hand and jumping out through the window into a Nissan Micra and speeding off into the distance.

I heard that some places boot you out with a BSc Medical Sciences if you fail your third year med school exams and can't progress. I suppose it's reassuring that you don't leave with nothing.

That description only applies to orthopaedics

No.

However what i think you can do is since you've passed 2 years of medicine you can do the final year of another science degree and be awarded a BSc

This would be the same as intercalating as some medics do

At Cambridge you get the normal Cambridge BA degree after three years - same as anyone doing any course.
