Medicine is not really difficult as people assume it to be!!! In my opinion I believe there re many more difficult courses in d university (Nuclear physics, ind. chem) n many others!!!

Congratulations op and thanks for sharing what you learnt, I've gained alot from it and hopefully one day I'll share something like this, not as a medical student but as a biochemist.
God bless U and those of "us" that are still "under" the graduates as "undergraduates" and the above graduates too who are post graduates.

mentorandfriend: 7) YOU CAN PAY YOUR WAY THROUGH SCHOOL. When we were in first year, we started applying for every available scholarship. One of my guys got about 5 scholarships. We wrote for AGIP, TOTAL, SHELL, NNPC, LNGN, MTN, AGBAMI patners, Federal Government, Essay competitions that have prize money. Every year, we receive lump sums of cash that are in six digits. You see, life can be so easy. Dont complain anymore.

True talk.
I can remember back then in school when I was blessed with Shell, Mobil, Chevron ELF and FG scholarships in addition to my state bursery. I was spoilt with money, but am glad it tought me to value the truly imprtant things in life

N.B. Am hoping EFCC wld not come and start chasing me for chopping oil companies money

DermalCarotene: But do anatomy questions normally come from Keith Moore's textbook of anatomy??
No. It varies from school to school. At UNTH, they use Last's Anatomy. In my school, it is Keith Moore.

smurfy: "The most intelligent pool of students from various secondary schools apply to study medicine..." Where did you get that "fact" from?
because for you to study medicine you have to make good grades in waec and also score very high in jamb and post-jamb. In otherwords, it is mostly intelligent students that gain admission to study medicine.

Medicine is 6 years if you work hard. Any added year is for those who repeat a class.

Different schools embrace different texts. In EBSU and my school, it is Keith Moore you av to read. In UNN, you must cram your Last's anatomy text o. Goodluck sweetie. Which school are u in by the way?
