    French Unicorn girl I also dont know if im smart enough like a lot of your post is french and it makes no sense to me but I heard you dont need to be smart to study med in france cos france doesnt get many smart people but still idk what the heck is going on in ur post
    You will be fine as long as u r not studying french at uni! Once you go to a new country, you live in between those people and get used to speaking their language.
    Proof: i didnt know a word of english (lies, i knew "good morning" ) when i came here and just listened to other people talking and within 6 months i spoke english fluently (well 'fluently' enough) and now am the A* student in the school in all (euh.... no almost all) subjects sooo yh it wasnt that hard seee
    You can do it :clap2::grouphugs:

    I didn't disagree with you about that, only tried to excuse it by playing the 'poor student' card.

    What ? This part was not in French .. And I did not say that , I said that everyone could get into med schools because the selection does not occur during college but during 1st year of medicine.

    Also in here medical schools in which we can do an English course do not exist.

    Hardly easier, if you've read the blog posts.
    There are some medical schools in Eastern Europe that teach in English, though you would still be expected to learn the local language for clinical placements and such.

    Hey you posted something on my profile but I dont know how to reply to it. My problem is that from your post you made it sound like my school grades didnt matter which got my hopes high plus you said they dont teach in english so I dont want to have french kids coming to me and swearing at me in french when i dont understand it

    Her blog posts are in English. :erm:
    School grades don't matter, but first year medical school grades do and, as the blog posts state, those grades are very hard to make.

    As for your last point - a risk that any international student has to take. :dontknow: You could be made fun of even in a UK university.

    Heyy, I just finished reading your last blog post. It was a great read, as always and another insight into the French system. I do hope, wherever the future takes you, that you continue being the jolie et contente licorne que tu est! (That probably doesn't make sense but I hope you understand what would the proper translation of that last bit be?)
