What are the application steps?


Which Medical Schools To Apply To?


You are only allowed to apply for medicine at 4 places (unlike other degrees where you get 5 options). This means you need to make those applications count! No university selects it’s students the same way so if you don’t know how the ones you are applying to choose their candidates you could end up throwing away one of your few application slots.

Work Experience


Work experience is key to applying to medicine and every single university will want you to have some. Everyone will have different types of work experience of various lengths but in general most applicants will have similar experiences. Because of this it’s extremely important to stand out by reflecting properly on your work experience! We can show you exactly how to do this!

Personal Statements


For any degree application you will need to write a personal statement and medicine is no different. Your personal statement is your first chance to sell yourself to the university and therefore it might be one of the most important documents you write. We can give you the tools to write an excellent personal statement as well as offering everyone who comes to our course FREE analysis of their own personal statement when they come to write it.

Grades


Your GSCE and A Level grades will be key aspects of your application to medical school. You can have the best work experience in the world but if you don’t have the correct grades universities will not consider you. Here we can talk you through scientifically approved revision tips and advice that can keep nerves at bay, ensuring that you get the best grades possible on your exams.

UCAT and BMAT


In applying to medicine you are guaranteed to have to sit either the UCAT or the BMAT and in some cases both. These are 2 admissions tests that medical schools use to differentiate candidates and your results can mean the difference between a place at medical school or not. They are very different exams and if you are not prepared for them they can be incredibly hard.

Interviews


Your final step for applications will be an interview. These can be in the form of a Traditional Interview or a Multiple Mini Interview (MMI), both of which are wildly different and have their own challenges. Most applicants won’t have had much experience of interviews and so they can be very daunting if you aren’t prepared. MMIs in particular provide unique challenges that you will not have seen in Traditional Interviews and often throw candidates off their stride.
