    When you are applying for medicine postgraduate, in the same uni you did your undergraduate, is it easier for you to get in/ better chances?

    1) No such thing as medicine post-graduate. There's only undergraduate and graduate entry medicine.

    2) No, you will be judged on your character and your merits only.

    I'm assuming OP is actually an American/international student of some kind, in which case medicine is post-graduate outside of the UK in many countries, after doing a basic science degree in biology/some other related subject.


    But you are correct-even if you did do Graduate entry medicine (GEM) having done a degree at that same university already, they would still interview you in the same way. The best you can hope for, in some places, is maybe a guarantee of an interview if you are on track for a certain degree grade (usually a 2:1 in the UK). I did Medical science at Exeter, and they offered 2:1 students an interview for medicine-you then had to do well in the interview for a spot on the course!

    I thought you could do an M.D. which is a postgraduate research qualification in this country? Albeit not a PMQ of course.

    Yes but I assume you were talking about an MBBS degree. I don't think MD degrees are that competitive unless it is funded.
    Also, most people just say 'postgraduate'
