    It doesn't matter where you get a degree in Medicine from.

    For the UK it doesn't matter jobswise where you got your degree from, a Cambridge medicine degree is no better than any other.

    However the way medicine is taught at different institutions is different, so you'll need to do your own research in order to find u which one will suit you.

    Perhaps i don't know the stats, but the degree is not worth more. Thus you are incorrect in saying the statement was wrong.

    If that is the case (a source would have been nice), part of the reason for a higher EPM would be that they all have to do intercalated BScs so they will get more points for that. But there's nothing to stop you from doing an iBSc at any other medical school.

    And that doesn't make their course superior anyway. Or make their FY1s somehow "better" than other FY1s :confused:
