Hey!

Can anyone studying medicine at Queen's University Belfast tell me if there's going to be math and physics? I'm packing my stuff and thinking whether I should bring my old notebooks.

Thank you!

I'm not at QUB but from what I gather, a UK medical course does not require advanced mathematical skill. Simple calculations up to Grade A GCSE Mathematics standard and you should be fine. You are not studying a mathematics degree.

If you are planning on becoming a clinical radiologist (with radiology being moderately competitive), you may very well need a higher level of mathematics/ physics beyond GCSE and/or A level.

Hope this helps and have fun! I have heard nothing but good things about NI.

Thank you! That’s what I suspected, but my native country’s medical degree entails mathematics and medicinal physics so I was curious about the UK degree
