    1. Absolutely NO. The baseline that for any course to go for Medicine, it should have background relation with the medical course. Agricultural Science/Education has nothing to do with Medicine.

  17. Hello sir!
    I need advice on something and googling didn't help much. I figured that with your knowledge, you will know the answers.
    I recently learnt that BDS (I'm a dental student) is not accepted in the USA and it's my plans to work there after school. The process of going there and studying to get DDS is quite stressful and costly. I heard (in an article) about a programme where a dentist can go a 18 months programme after completing BDS to study MBBS in 18 months. The article claimed that Uniben and UNN are universities that offer this. I'm wondering if it's true.
