Getting into Medical school
So getting into Med school depends on where you are applying, Getting into Med school in USA, UK and Canada are of course harder compared to other countries. Each University has its own set of requirements.
Getting into Universities in for example China, Ukraine, Russia is fairly easy and less competitive. Even where Im studying Sri Lanka, it’s easy for foreigners to apply, but fees are very high and for locals of course depends on their A level marks.
So bottom line is it depends on where you are applying.
For some students getting in harder than staying in med school, while for others the Med school is the harder part.
Is Med School hard
No one said it'll be easy, Med school is hard wherever you study. Because it’s a huge syllabus which demands a lot of our time and energy. If you see the big picture, do not panic and organise your syllabus content, daily lessons, make a timetable and approach the program with a positive mindset it will be easier. Still its not a walk in the park. You should be willing to make sacrifices, do your daily work, waste less time, take appropriate breaks etc… It will be easier for you and you will pass exams.
A huge mistake I did was, I was into a lot of other stuff in 1–2 years of Med school which made me fail. Always remember after entering Med school this, Medicine is your priority, everything else revolves around Medicine.
