I would just get a Galaxy Note or something with a stylus built-in.

You don't even need to latest, most expensive one - just any big screen phone compatible with a stylus.

If you must have a tablet, read this: https://www.creativebloq.com/feature...nd-note-taking

Finally, make sure your med school isn't giving you one for free, otherwise it would be a waste of money!

I'm not a medical student myself, so I'm not going to say that this is 100% the case, but it might be worth holding out as from what I've gathered medical students are generally given iPads to use, so I'd wait to see whether you get one as it's better to be in a position where you haven't bought something and know you should buy it, and then going out and buying it than it is to be in a position to have bought something, realise you don't need it and then end up having to sell it at a loss. If you find out that you don't get one, or just don't get along with iPadOS then it might be worth looking at your options. But it's not worth jumping straight into buying something you might not benefit from.

Wow, that's a lot for a tablet

For yours truly, when he started medical school, he bought a massive desktop computer for £399. Got his old computer monitor and used that in the accommodation. He then used pen and paper to write down the notes!

Then in 3rd year, he bought a netbook (remember those?) for clinical placements, approximately £200.

(I don't know why I'm talking about myself in the third person, must be too tired)

I'd say the Samsung Galaxy Tab S6 Lite is probably going to be the best option in your budget at £350 including the S Pen.

I understand, if tablets were a thing back when I was a med student I may have got one, who knows?

(There were Tablet PCs but they are basically laptops that fold back :lol: )
