But isn't everyone just awful as an FY1 as it's something so new to them? Plus nationally Oxbridge do fantastic in the exams in compairson to people from other medical unis and so don't see why if one had the opportunity wouldn't go there.(Original post by girl_in_black)
Does it really matter which is harder to get into? Being an Oxbridge graduate does not necessarily mean that you will be a good doctor at the end - I have worked with a couple of Oxford graduates who were pretty awful as F1s.
What are the downsides?
