    My brother does medicine, him and lots of other medical students i've spoken to claim that the hardest part is getting in, then the first 2-3 years are easy and the last two get progressively harder. Countless people have told me there are easier ways of making more money, for someone with the intellect to get into medicine. Having said that, some consultant doctors are on £300,000 a year, but they must work welllll hard...

    I'm a 4th year at Nottingham.

    Getting in wasn't a problem (4 straight forward offers). Try 11 exams in a week, covering perhaps a whole years worth of work for 1 of your as/a2 for each exam. Not so easy.

    that was in my 1st and 2nd year (Notts has now changed the course by the way incase you're worried!!!!)

    Basically, the word 'easy' cannot be combined with medicine. It's demanding/challenging. Most of the concepts are fairly straightforward to be honest, but there is a huge amount to learn.

    is it anything like A Level chemistry where there was a hell of a large amount to learn for the synoptic as well as it being imposible to understand.

    Most qualified doctors actually admit to simpyl doing the job for the money and the status. Its a fact.
    In that case, I would give it 3 years post-qual before they have a nervous breakdown...

    I know the job is high pressured but not much problem solving in comparison to pure/applied maths and physics then(not trying to make it sound easy, but I've heard that most geniuses do mathematical/physical sciences. Though the admissions is the second hardest after oxbridge and one or two law courses)
