    I would say that's Oxford. They've ranked number 1 in the world for medicine repeatedly in the last 6-7 years.
    Incorrect, Cambridge is top for medicine, oxford second, imperial 3rd. Which league table have you been looking at?

    I knew you were going to post this ranking table but I said in the world not the UK. The two go hand in hand obviously but different set of rankings...
    I am quoting Times Higher Education World University Rankings.
    Oxford has also quoted that they've been no.1 in the world for Medicine between 2011-2015. I believe they were also no.1 in 2016-2017

    I wouldn't say Cambridge is necessary *the* best as these positions constantly keep switching but it's tied with Oxford definitely in terms of what the course has to offer. However, I think what the *best* is will differ from person to person. Someone may think Imperial or UCL is the best place or Edinburgh so it's quite a subjective topic and ranks don't tend to be constant from one source to another.

    but if it's top in the UK, would it not still be higher than oxford in the world league table?

    obvs you're right, but we were talking about the league tables, not everyone's subjective view. I personally love Bristol's medical school, but a lot would disagree.

    Thats why i said the two go hand in hand, but since they're two different sets of rankings with possibly different scoring methods they are not going to be the same. I sort of trust the THE rankings more though

    But league tables are never a good indicator of anything lol. Cambridge being number 1 on one table and 3 on another really doesn't say a lot about how it is as a medical school. At the end of the day every medical school has something different to offer and that's why employment-wise as long as you get an MBBS, it doesn't really matter what uni you went to.

    *sigh* I know. Sensible people know this. I was responding to a post about league tables. I wish everyone would read previous posts before saying anything because I keep repeating myself.

    Hey guys how are you preparing for the interview? I have no support from anyone so I'm kind of on my own with my preparation here, even though nothing came back from them yet i thought i'd practice just for the other med unis if not cambridge.
