    Is there any advantage at any point of your career of achieving say a Distinction or Honours in medical sciences or clinical sciences etc at medical school? And how much of an advantage is there? Thanks!

    How much of an advantage is there? Not that much? Or quite significant? I'm guessing research etc is more important but does the whole honours thing matter that much in medicine?

    It is worth a few points on specialty applications (not sure about foundation programme, but being in the top decile will obviously get you more points) - points that could easily be made up elsewhere if you didn't get a distinction, but handy to have nonetheless.

    It will be recognised as an impressive achievement on your CV, and you can add it to your title which also looks good e.g. Dr Joe Bloggs MBBS (Hons)
