    Maybe, but including work experience, volunteering and the sheer competition of places for the big 3 would you not argue its harder?

    As a dental student, I agree most definitely a maths student from a step uni is probably more academically able than a med/dent/vet student. Although we have to have extensive work experience and volunteering and our interviews are intense in a different way. MMI interviews are the DEVIL

    I think these courses require the most preparation all together. All of them require interviews and at least AAA grades. VERY high competition also.

    Work experience just means giving some of your time, literally takes no physical or mental effort whatsoever

    Relative to any other university course though, it requires more work and preparation.

    Considering 60% of all medicine & Dentistry applications are unsuccessful, I doubt that.

    Maybe the other 40% didn't have pushy parents.

    TBH 21k starting salary for a 5 year degree and working insane hours for years after medical school doesn't really seem like something people should envy

    I find its the ones who don't actually have a passion for the subject and are going into medicine/dentistry for the status and salary dont get through interview stage and often dont get the grades
