Degree: Medicine (Bachelors) - Liverpool University
Who am I?
I'm Millie, and I'm a medical student at the University of Liverpool - one of my reasons for choosing my degree was how much I enjoy the sciences, particularly biology and chemistry. My passion for these subjects makes me eager to help others, and hopefully help them find a passion in the subjects too!
I have completed a sports leadership award which involved me teaching sports to both my peers and to younger children of varying ages, backgrounds and abilities. This developed my communication skills and I found that it was something I enjoyed. I also volunteered at Age UK, working in a team to deliver information on carehomes to elderly people and their families.
My biology, chemistry and mathematics lessons will be split into two sections - basic understanding of concepts from the specification, and then followed by exam-set questions and questions set by me, which could be asked in the future, which we will work through together.
I will also provide links to youtube videos that I find helpful in explaining the concepts, if this is appropriate, which you can use if you like when the session has ended.
The topics we will visit will be the ones you personally struggle with the most, as it is important to address these early so you can get enough practise.
I can also offer sessions on medical school entry, and can give advice on personal statement writing (how to make the best parts of you stand out), UKCAT preparation and help with specific questions you may not understand, interview advice and practise sessions, particularly for MMI interviews which are becoming increasingly common, and a bit of reassurance, because I know how stressful the UCAS application process can be for a medic!

Firstly, describe the series of reactions that CO2 goes through when in the blood
1) CO2 reacts wih water in the blood to form carbonic acid H2CO3
2) H2CO3 dissociates to form CO3- and H+
Secondly, describe the effect that the increased H+ levels will have on the body
1) Increase in protons (H+) will cause a drop in pH/increase in acidity of the blood
2) Decreased pH reduces enzyme action as protons disrupt the 3D structure of proteins
3) Other proteins may lose their structure and become dysfunctional
Thirdly, apply some of your own knowledge as to what effect this would have directly on a person. As CO2 is excreted by breathing, hyperventilation is likely to be a common symptom. If the condition worsens, coma and death could occur.see more
