Session 1 - UCAS Personal Statement Preparation

In this session we take a look at what a UCAS Personal Statement is and how to best prepare and write one that gives you the best chance of being invited to an interview for medical school (or any other medical based course at university, including nursing, paramedic science, biomedical science, physiotherapy and much more. Tom is joined by Fatima, Hamnah and Zebah who are all 4th year medical students who have been there and done it!

Session 2 - UCAT Preparation

In our 2nd session we take a look at the UCAT aptitude test EVERY medical school applicant must take before they apply to medical school. Typically you would take this test in the summer between years 12 and 13. Studying for this test and getting it right is vital for any successful application. Think of it as training to become an athlete… you need to peak at the right time and not over train! Tom is joined by Ishaa, a 4th medical school student who coaches students to be successful in their UCAT prep! She give some great advice on studying techniques and takes us through the different sections of the test. 

Top tip: Watch it on 1.25 or 1.5 speed 😉
