About me

Hello! My name is Nicholas and I study medicine at the University of Oxford. I enjoy medical sciences immensely, and am a keen triathlete, having competed for Oxford at Varsity! As a tutor, I am patient and understanding. I pride myself on my ability to spot weaknesses and turn them into strengths. I have taught in various roles as an NCO in the CCF, teaching English in Hong Kong, and helping first and second year medical students in Oxford. A level and GCSE: I find the best way of preparing for Science at both GCSE and A level is to solidify basic understanding and then concentrate on past papers, guided by the syllabus and mark schemes respectively. In my sessions, we will cover a topic, and work together to find the perfect answer. This way, tutees know exactly how to answer questions in the exam hall. Applying for Medical School: There is no doubt that applying for medical school is one of the hardest, and yet most exhilarating things a student can do. I received offers from Oxford, Imperial, Birmingham and Cardiff and so I know the difficulties of the application process, and also how to succeed! In particular, through communication with current Oxford Tutors, I am aware of the types of questions which are asked every year in interviews for medicine, and so know what Oxbridge medical tutors are looking for. I believe I can use this knowledge to help tutees to achieve their full potential in interviews. Applying for medicine at Oxford: As a current student, I know the various strengths and weaknesses of Oxford Colleges, as well as each colleges medical tutor and speciality. I am very happy to advise on the application process of the collegiate system, allowing you to make an educated choice of college. Please feel free to drop me a message if you have any questions, or want more information on how I would approach a topic. I look forward to hearing from you! Nicholas Hello!

Questions Nicholas has answered

I've tried to learn all my notes, but what is the best way to prepare for the exam?

It's fantastic if you manage to learn all your notes before the exam, but knowledge isn't everything. It's also about how you apply the knowledge. I would recommend getting to grips with the syllabus, and past papers to really know what the examiners are looking for. This way you can be efficient in your learning, and write exactly what the examiners are looking for to hit that high grade!

What is the best way to prepare for medical school interviews?

Guided practice! I have undergone numerous practice interviews, and seven real interviews for medical school - all of which were succesful. I therefore have a lot of questions which I can ask you! These range from multiple mini-interview style questions asked by medical schools such as Birmingham, to the far more science based questions   asked at Oxbridge. Studying at Oxford, I often speak to the tutors who set the questions, and so know the common themes used in interviews.
