Hey

I am applying for the AFP hopefully and was wondering what counts as a distinction or merit for the extra educational achievements
at my uni distinction is an A grade (top 5%) and B is a merit (top 15-20%) would this count or do they have specific criteria?

It’s usually whatever you med school says is a distinction. Does your med school have someone that particularly helps with application? Or have you a local foundation school that comes in to talk about application

IMT defines a distinction as top 10% or less for your overall medical degree grade, and a merit as top 20% or less for a part of the course. Its probably similar.

For AFP, it's whatever your medical schools decides is a distinction/merit etc.
