At EUNICAS, we are often struck by how early in their school lives some students have ruled themselves out of careers in the health sciences. Ill never get those sort of points they say, scowling sadly at a far-off golden mountain. However, it is clear that we are beginning to understand that high points don't necessary predict successful medical careers. Often students with points in the low 400s, who have then studied in Europe, have become superb doctors, vets or dentists. We are also starting to meet students saying that even if they get into UCC/UCD, theyd prefer to go to Italy!
