About me

I am a medical student at Imperial and hold a President's Scholarship that I was awarded based on my interview performance. I also ranked in the top 3% of Birmingham interviewees so have experience of both MMI interviews as well as panel interviews. 


When applying for medicine I found interviews incredibly daunting. Through lots of practice I managed to gain confidence and received offers from UCL, Imperial and Birmingham. I myself benefited from a tutor and found medical students who had just been through the process to be amazing mentors to me and I would like to help others in the same way.


I have experience in chairing a feminist society with over 200 members whereI always encouraged younger and less confident members of the society so that they could improve their public speaking skills. I was praised for being able to keep control of a large audience as well as acting as a role model who could empower others who were initially afraid to speak up.

About my sessions

As I've been through the process of applying for medicine very recently I remember the stress of personal statements and interviews very well and I want to give the advice I wish I had received.


In my sessions I help with the personal statement ensuring that it fits the criteria panels are looking for. I will also help with interviews and will go through many questions that could be asked as well as questions specific to the personal statement. I'm happy to give advice on which medical schools to apply to. I can also tutor the BMAT and give any exam tips to help boost your score.


I have experience in tutoring chemistry, maths and biology up to GCSE and am very happy to tutor that.

Questions Adrija has answered

If you don't get into medical school what will you do?

In this question the interviewer is exploring both your motivation and commitment to medicine. Medicine is a competitive degree and so it is important that you have considered alternative options and the interviewer is looking for maturity of thought with other pathways you could take. I would say something like, "I know that being unsuccessful in applying to medical school is a very real possibility so I have thought about what happens if I don't get in. I would really love to be a doctor so I think I would take a gap year and reapply for medicine. If I were unsuccessful again, then I would want to still be in a field where I could help people so I would apply to study Nursing or to be a paramedic. This would allow me to have a similar job with a lot of reward and I would be able to use the same skills that I would use as a doctor".In this question the interviewer is exploring both your motivation and commitment to medicine.
