    Barts is a much more prestigious and respected medical school than the others. It is ranked 3rd(or 2nd, depending on which league table you look at) in the UK. I love it here.

    Yet its graduates have the 3rd worst rates for passing postgraduate exams (11% below the national average, 27.2% below the top-performing med school) and the 5th worst score for how prepared their graduates feel for their F1 jobs (27.9% below the top scoring med school)! So depends how you measure "prestigious" and "respected", I suppose!

    yeh and thats nothing to do with prestige tho lmao. It is well known how respected Barts is and there must be a reason for it to be in the top 3 year in, year out. Anyway ngl I would have been over the moon with just 1 offer because it doesn't matter where you study medicine, doctor is doctor. but to say it's not one of the more respected and prestigious, is not true. As if we're digging into these things, GMC did say that Barts makes the best junior doctors albeit in like 2007 lol but if you want to be pedantic and nitpicky....

    lol dunno which ones you've been looking at. there's only 2 that people look at and it's always near the top...
    https://www.thecompleteuniversitygui...ngs?s=medicine 4th but Swansea is 3rd so basically 3rd as Swansea is only for grads...

    https://www.theguardian.com/educatio...e-for-medicine = 3rd

    what other league tables even are there for medicine...

    Sorry I fell like an idiot (My explanation isn't going to help with this at all):

    I had no idea that Barts and Queen Mary's were the same thing (I didn't bother looking at them because I'm Scottish and can't afford fees, and I've never been to London).

    Because I'd never seen Barts near the top, I just assumed it was near the bottom.

    Again, sorry for being a complete idiot😂
