There are 4 qualifying examinations to enter into Oxford University:
RAT, BAT, SAT, and PAT. An enginner cannot go to Oxford University
through BAT or SAT . A doctor on the other hand can go to Oxford
University through the RAT ,BAT and PAT but not through SAT.
Further there are 3 ways to become a doctor (viz. Foundation,
Inter and Final).Find the ratio of number of ways in which an engineer
can make it to Oxford University to the number of ways a doctor can
make it to oxford university?
