About me

Hi there! My name is Shalu and I'm a medical student.


It is getting much much harder now to get into medical school just because there are several little tactics that you have to know and learn. I can help with that because not only have I gone through this process myself but I also regularly help others with their interviews and prepping for UKCAT and GAMSAT so I have a very good idea of how the process is moulding and changing and so I can be give you up to date infor...

Hi there! My name is Shalu and I'm a medical student.


It is getting much much harder now to get into medical school just because there are several little tactics that you have to know and learn. I can help with that because not only have I gone through this process myself but I also regularly help others with their interviews and prepping for UKCAT and GAMSAT so I have a very good idea of how the process is moulding and changing and so I can be give you up to date information and help you to achieve your dreams.


Medicine is harder than it looks from the outside, not in terms of the work load but in terms of the depth of what you are ultimately doing; as an 18 year old, you have a completely different outlook about the course than you do when you graduate several years later and this is mainly because of the experiences you have within the course and that's what I enjoy most about it.


I can help with sciences as it is the core of my degree and now that I have done two science degrees, I have a good depth and understanding to be able to teach not to mention that I have previous experience of tutoring others so this is not a new field for me.


I would love to be able to help you in your academic career and hopefully, I will be able to make a change for the better.

About my sessions

In terms of GCSE and A-level classes, I chose to ask which topics it is that students struggle most with and teach the theory to them so that they gain the core understanding and once that is complete, we will move on to practice exam questions using past papers and continue this so they are well prepared for the exams.

In terms of GCSE and A-level classes, I chose to ask which topics it is that students struggle most with and teach the theory to them so that they gain the core understanding and once that is complete, we will move on to practice exam questions using past papers and continue this so they are well prepared for the exams.


For UKCAT and GAMSAT prep, I will provide revision material and go through the technique of answering each style of question so that nothing is a surprise on test day and we can even re-create the test environment so they are fully prepared in every way possible.


For interview prepping, I go through the most common questions tailored to the university and the interview style. Then I will expand into more details on what the interviewers are looking for with each question and practice several different styles before the actual day.


Personal statement as the name suggests, is quite personal however, I will read the ideas and plans they already have and help guide them in writing it in a way that medical schools like to see. I can also provide help with choosing the right work experience categories to do and the length of time to do each.
