      I went to medical school for 5 years. The academic demands of the work at university were definitely greater than that of secondary school but I enjoyed the work so much more that I wouldn’t necessarily describe it as “harder”. Medical school isn’t easy, of course, but I think it is very manageable as long as you enjoy what you are doing and you are driven enough 🙂
