  • Description: The scramble for university places in the United Kingdom has begun. So which is the best medical school? In terms of attainment, Oxbridge cleans up again.1 2 Interestingly, in one year only 45 children who receive free school meals were admitted to Oxbridge,3 fewer than were accepted from Winchester, a single private school. As someone who qualified for free school meals, I was lucky to get into medicine at all. We comprehensive types may tend to end up in lowly inner city general practice, but I am content—insubordination never lent itself to hospital service.
