    Medical Science vs. Pre-Med

    What are the major differences between obtaining a Bachelors degree in Medical Science as opposed to obtaining a Bachelors degree in Pre-Medicine? Does one increase the chance of getting into Medicine in the future over the other?

    Also, do institutions matter? As far as I know, University of Wollongong and UTS offers Pre-Med whilst USyd, UNSW and others offer Medical Science. If one were to get a GPA of 3.5+/4.0 in either of these courses, which one would universities looking for postgrad Med students accept over the other (assuming they've aced the GAMSAT)? Does having a Medical-Science degree from USyd get highly looked upon by other institutions or are they viewed equally as a Pre-Med degree from UOW?

    If you plan to apply to UQ or Melb they require several pre-req subjects in your undergrad degree. Make sure you have them covered.

    Other than that there is absolutely no difference between doing MedSc or Pre-Med or even non-Med related degrees. Also no difference where you study (except Flinders Deakin Macquarie giving bonus points to their own undergrad students). GEMSAS will use a common scale to recalculate your GPA.
