About me

I am a medical student at the University of Birmingham and am greatly interested in my course. Sciences have always been one of my strengths and learning about the anatomy and functions of our bodies as well as what affects it appeals to me a lot, as well as being able to apply this knowledge in a practical manner in order to have a direct and deep positive impact on the lives others, thereby being able to see the immediate effects of my work. 

As a first year, my experiences and skills during exams is still fresh. Academically thus far I have achieved 11 straight A stars at GCSE as well as 2 A stars and an A at A Level in Biology, Chemistry and Maths. Apart from these I have achieved a score of 820 (and Band 2 SJT) in the UKCAT. 

Outside of school, my main hobbies are swimming (in which I competed at regional level), athletics and hockey, as well as being a keen reader and these activities have really helped me to develop socially and manage a work-life balance. 

I have also had prior experience and a passion for teaching through mentoring students at my school and sixth form at GCSE and A Level, and in some cases my mentees have gone from predicted D/C grades to A and even A star at GCSE.

About my sessions

Regarding my tutorials, I believe that a combination of a friendly and open delivery alongside a planned out structure to the sessions is the most effective. At the moment, I feel that an effective structure would be starting with going over any doubts and queries from the last session (including the 'homework tasks' that may have been set). After this we would go over a previously-decided topic of the course discussing it and going over any weak areas. I would then go through a set of past paper questions with the tutee and discuss ideal answers as well as any related information from the course that may need explaining. At the end of the session, likely once a week, I will attach and send a document of past paper questions relating to the topic gone over in that session, and in addition to this I am considering providing a "recap" document of a question from each of the past few topics to ensure it has been understood for the long-term and consolidate the work done so far. 

Progress measurement would be done by having review sessions with the tutee where he/she can discuss how they feel with the subject and their performance at school/college, as well as by keeping track of scores in the questions and the overall recap documents that I will be setting.

Questions Ravi has answered

Describe and explain 3 typical adaptations of a xerophytic plant. ( 6 marks).

-  Thick waxy cuticle, provides a layer that allows light to pass through but is still waterproof, helping to prevent the evaporation and loss of water from the leaf surface. -  Hairy leaves with sunken stomata. Both of these adaptations help prevent water loss by trapping water vapour just above the surface of the leaf and above the stomata, creating a warm and saturated microclimate in the area, which means that there is less of a concentration gradient and so less evaporation and diffusion of the water out of the stomata pore. - Curled and spiny leaves. Spiny leaves are very thin and curled leaves both function similarly in that they reduce the exposed surface area of the leaves which means that there is less opportunity for the evaporation and loss of water vapour. -  Thick waxy cuticle, provides a layer that allows light to pass through but is still waterproof, helping to prevent the evaporation and loss of water from the leaf surface. -  Hairy leaves with sunken stomata.
