Very engaging tutorial. Consolidates teaching with questions in order to put into practice, if found challenging will explain in great depth and tips are given throughout. Thank you!

Very detailed, specification-led sessions. Uses visual aids to teach and allow solid understanding of the topic, again revisiting areas I found hard!

Questions Luwaiza has answered

How do I write a good personal statement for entry into Medical School

Your personal statement is your way of showing the medical school that you're applying to your achievements, your thoughts and your motivation to become a doctor. Most medical schools receive a lot of applications per year and therefore will not have the time to read your personal statement in absolute detail- therefore what your write has to be something that stands out. You should, before starting to write the personal statement- make a plan. You should ideally begin with your motivation to become a doctor- what has inspired you, why do you want to be a doctor- this is the place for you to highlight any experience or event in your life that first sparked your interest in becoming a doctor. You must then show evidence of your motivation by mentionning work experiences or volunteering experiences and what you gained from working there and how it strengthened your desire. You mustn't just list all you have done but be able to show what you gained. You should also write about your strengths and achievements for example- if you play and instrument and what grade you are at, or if you play a team sport and have a major role in your team. This is to show that you aren't just someone that excels at academia but also someone who has other hobbies so that you have ways to contribute to your university social life as well as relieve stress during and after your time as a medical student.Your personal statement is your way of showing the medical school that you're applying to your achievements, your thoughts and your motivation to become a doctor.

Regarding the first ionisation energies, why do the values shown on the graph go down from magnesium to aluminium and then rise again from aluminium to silicon

The first ionisation energy of an element is the energy required in order to remove the outermost electron from the element to make it an ion with the charge +1. From magnesium to aluminium the values shown on the graph go down from magnesium to aluminium because from aluminium, the electron is removed from the 3p energy level which is a higher energy level than the 3s level of the magnesium, hence the electron is removed with greater ease. It is harder to remove the electron from Silicon because silicon has 1 more proton than aluminium so has stronger proton charge but the electrons are in 3p level so have the same amount of electron shielding, therefore the charge holding the electron is greater in silicon so the energy is higher. So because the outermost electron in Si is closes to the nucleus, the energy to remove the electron is greatest out of the 3 elements.The first ionisation energy of an element is the energy required in order to remove the outermost electron from the element to make it an ion with the charge +1. From magnesium to aluminium the values shown on the graph go down from magnesium to aluminium because from aluminium, the electron is removed from the 3p energy level which is a higher energy level than the 3s level of the magnesium, hence the electron is removed with greater ease.

What is the role of ADH in water regulation

ADH is a hormone made in the hypothalamus and secreted from the pituitary gland. It circulates in the blood to the collecting ducts of the kidneys where it makes aquaporin channels through the collecting duct so water may leave and be reabsorbed into the blood. ADH is a hormone made in the hypothalamus and secreted from the pituitary gland.
