About me

About me: I am a second year Graduate Entry Medicine student at Warwick University. I completed my undergraduate degree in Biomedical Science at the University of the West of England, where I first got involved as a tutor for 2 groups of 10 students, and ran workshops on medical school applications, the UKCAT, and interviews. I think Medicine is the best course you can do at university so I love discussing it with others who feel the same way!

What can I do for you?

Medicine

Want to make your medical school personal statement stand out? Want to increase your UKCAT score? Need some practice questions to prepare for an interview? I have been through the process and so I understand the stress and the common mistakes we all make in our preparation, and I'd love to help you to demonstrate the best of your abilities to the admissions teams.

University applications

Your personal statement is your chance to tell universities about yourself and your passion for your chosen subject, but it can be so difficult to know what to write or fit all the information in. Drop me a message and we can make sure your application stands out!

How do I get in touch?

Send me a message or book a session with me, and let's get started!

About my sessions

UKCAT

A typical UKCAT tutorial involves getting to know you and how you are approaching your UKCAT preparation to start with. I will usually give you a timed question to do and see how you get on, then discuss my technique for approaching that UKCAT section, and give you another timed question to do to look for improvement in timing and score. We can do this for all UKCAT content or just individual sections you may be finding trickier. We will usually finish on a discussion about recommended resources and whether you'd like any further sessions or are feeling more confident.

Personal statements

We can either discuss your personal statement drafts purely in messages or over Skype sessions, depending on your preference. I will ask for your current draft to review beforehand and will make notes on any content I think is missing, or any ways I can help you cut down characters, as well as parts that are written really well and should be emphasised. We can then discuss my thoughts, as well as your application in general and what may be important to include vs. what could be saved for an interview, for instance.

Sophie is an excellent tutor. She is incredibly helpful and even went above and beyond to tailored everything to me. I am very clear on exactly what I need to do to improve- what more could I ask for? I was very fortunate to find you Sophie- thank you so much!

Questions Sophie has answered

How do I figure out UKCAT abstract reasoning patterns?

Think of the categories of factors that could be used in the pattern sets and you'll be able to rapidly go through them in your head to narrow it down: colour, shape, symmetry, number, size, rotation, etc. One mnemonic for remembering these is SCANS (shape, colour, arrangement, number, size).

How do I get relevant clinical experience for a medical school application?

You can get relevant clinical experience for Medicine in many areas, including hospitals (check your local teaching hospitals for shadowing schemes or volunteering), general practice (write to practices to ask for a morning or two of shadowing), nursing homes (volunteer at meal times or ask about shadowing a carer), and first aid organisations (such as St Johns Ambulance service).

How do I start my personal statement?

A catchy first line summarising your interest in your chosen course and what you feel you'll bring to it will grab the interest of the admissions team. Quotes can be a bit cheesy unless they are genuinely the best way of expressing your passion for your subject. The most important thing is figuring out your major reason for applying - when did you first realise this was the subject for you? What aspect of your personality do you think is suited to your chosen course? What extra reading or other explorations of your subject have you done, which cemented your choice for you? Drawing from these will ensure that your personal statement is genuine, original, and captures the interest of the reader.
