Degree: Medicine (Other) - Sheffield University
Hi my names is Andrew and i'm a second year medical student at the University of Sheffield. I acheived an A* A A in Biology, Chemisty and Maths respectivly in my A-levels. I have a passion for teaching and used to tutor stuents in lower years at my school. I adapt my teaching style depending on the objectives of the student and am always looking for opportunities improve.
For sessions in Chemisty and Biology the content of the session will be discussed prior to the tutorial so that I can generate some questions that will be useful in testing the understanding of the materia that I have taught.
For the sessions about applying for medical school you can ask me anything. When I was applying I had loads of questions ranging from how many hours a week is it? to will I have time to still play rugby? These were all questions that I wish I had the answers to.
If you have any questions feel free to message me or arranage a 'meet the tutor' session. In this session we will discuss the objectives of the tutoring and arrange times and dates. I look forward to hearing from you .

The short answer to this is yes. There are hundreds of questions online. At first I found myself really slow and achieved low scores in practice tests.
With time you start to develop your own strategies at being quick with answering the questions. In the UKCAT your ability to work quickly and your exam techniqe make the difference between a good and a bad mark.
I can help with preparation in terms of conveying across the strategies and exam techniques that I have learned in taking the UKCAT and getting into medical school. I can recommend good resources and help you achieve the score you want.see more
1)Always write out the reaction first;
2)Now underneath calculate the Relative Formula Mass using a periodic table for each of the compounds.
3)Now always write out the formula you intend to use;
Moles= Mass of substance/ Relative formula mass
4)Always convert everything to grams so 20kg=20000g
Moles= 20 000/100
5)Ratio of CaCo3 toNa2Co3 is 1:1 as seen in equation
so 200 moles= mass/ 106
therefore 200x106= mass
21200 mass in grams
or 21.2 kgsee more
This is a comon question asked by students applying for medical school, one that I couldn't find an answer to when I was applying.
Obviously work load in terms of lectures varies massively beased on what Medical schools you are going to apply to and what their course structure is (problem based learning or lecture based). From personal expericence and from speaking to friends in other medical schools the average day of a medical student goes like this:
Morning - usually 3 or 4 lectures each of an hour in length. Material varies based on what year.
Afternoon - Usually on two or three days a week there will be an afternoon session. This varies it could be an anatomy session, a histology session, clinical skills etc.
Evening/ night- Preparation for tomorrows lectures, any assignments that need doing, reviewing material.
Overal medical school is time consuming and does require work however it is not what it was made out to be before I applied . I still have time to go to rugby 3 times a week with a game on the weekend and have done well in my exams so far.
I hope this helps.
