what about the 3 ways to become doctor , can an engineer become a doctor and then go to oxford
ganeshie8
  • ganeshie8
I don't think engineer can become a doctor, so for engineer there are just 2 ways to go to oxford

  • ganeshie8
for doctor, he can write any one of the 3 tests(RAT, BAT, PAT), then pick any one of the available 3 programs(Foundation, Inter, Final) therefore there are 3*3 = 9 ways for doctor
ganeshie8
  • ganeshie8
depends on how we interpret the problem
mathmath333
  • mathmath333
but foundation , inter and final are the ways for becoming a doctor not program after BAT,RAT etc
