I was wondering this should help me in deciding whether or not I should do a BSC before I graduate.
I remember a doctor telling me that in some specialities BSC isn't worth much, such as ophthalmology. It would be good to know where I can find such information as I don't want to do a BSC but might consider if it is important for some specialities that I have an interest for.

Where do I find how much a BSC is worth for each medical speciality programme? watch

It's generally well received. With ophthalmology, every point is hard to get, so that's still something. Just google what you're interested in e.g. core medical training (CMT) points specification or something. CMT and CST is 10 points for a first and 5 points for a 2.1 if I remember correctly/if it hasn't changed. Gives good points for FPAS too.

There aren't many medical specialties that are still very competative for specialty training so if you don't want to do a BSc anyway then I wouldn't do it for points alone.
