  • He/she had not passed the Third University Examination in Medicine more than three years before the Summer of the year in which the Final Medical Examination is taken, provided that, in the case of a student who has interrupted his/her medical studies at any time subsequent to passing the Third University Examination in Medicine in order to proceed to the BSc (Hons) Degree or to pursue any other non-medical programme of study approved by the College of Medicine and Health, the period of time devoted to such non-medical studies shall not be counted when computing the interval between his/her passing of the Third University Examination in Medicine and Final Medical Examination.
