State schools students are more likely to become high-flying doctors because they are used to battling against the odds, a study has found. 

Medical students are  nearly twice as likely to graduate top of their class if they were educated in the state sector rather than at fee-paying schools, according to research by the University of Aberdeen.  It comes despite the fact students from private institutions score slightly higher in the entry tests.
