About me

I'm a 2nd year medical student at Imperial College London. I did 6 A-levels and have always been praised as the top student by my teachers from high school. Getting to where I am now required a lot of work but has been worth it. I am the first student graduating from a high school in N. Cyprus to get accepted on Medicine in the UK which I believe has been a great motivation for younger students to come.

Having already been on wards in hospitals, I feel like medicine is definitely the right choice for my future career as every patient is a different story to read and have unique problems to solve which keeps my mind working all the time with the addition of emotional support and love for people which is what makes medicine unique: a combination of science and humanities. Yet, I have always been a physics/maths lover which is why I did physics A-level instead of Biology contrary to what most medical school applicants do! Mechanics is one of my favourite subjects! If I had failed to get into medical school, I would have chosen to study physics with no doubt! Also, I have not given up on psychology and I am still taking extra psychology courses at Imperial. I achieved the “first in Europe” award in Psychology GCSE which I believe shows my dedication to the subject.

About my sessions

I think the most important thing is to understand what the student wants to achieve and adjust the lesson accordingly. Nevertheless, all of my lessons will involve solving questions since it is not possible to learn something fully without solving questions and it is important to understand what the examiners actually want/expect which I believe is the major problem that GCSE/A-level students face. A typical lesson would probably start with explanation of the required topic in simple terms followed by questions and answers.

I still have my notes (loads of them!) from the past and I will prepare myself going through the topics that the student finds difficult and preparing exam focused questions.

In terms of measuring progress, I would very much appreciate if the student shares his/her mock exam papers with me so that I can see what they are struggling with. Personally, I will prepare some HW and see how the student approached and answered the questions although I will make sure that the HW will not be long as I know that the students are already very busy!

Questions Berin has answered

Compare the biological and learning explanations of gender development.

Biological explanation is concerned with nature which involves the innate characteristics whereas the learning explanation is concerned with nurture involving environmental influences. A similarity in these approaches would be that they both include a role for parents. This being said, the biological approach holds that our gender is dependent upon our genes (i.e. SRY on the Y chromosome) which are inherited from our parents while social learning theory puts forward that we observe and imitate the same sex role models (father/mother). Biological theory also says that hormones released during human development are important for gender development such as oestrogen governing the emergence of secondary sexual characteristics whereas learning approach says that when males/females display behaviour appropriate for their gender they are praised (operant conditioning- positive reinforcement). A similarity between these two suggestions would be that both occur post-partum i.e throughout life. Another similarity between the two theories would be that both are based on experimental evidence. However, biological approach is more objective in that it uses scientific measurements like PET scans while the learning approach tends to be based on interpretations which are subjective.Biological explanation is concerned with nature which involves the innate characteristics whereas the learning explanation is concerned with nurture involving environmental influences.

Freud studied the process of dreamwork but it is very difficult to investigate. Explain why dreamwork is difficult to investigate.

Dreaming is an unconscious process so it is a difficult concept to test. Interpretations of the dreams are required which raises the issue of subjectivity. Also, people may lie about and/or not remember their dreams (because they woke up during non-REM for example) which renders the interpretations invalid. Because different researchers may come up with different interpretations for dreams these interpretations are said to be unreliable.Dreaming is an unconscious process so it is a difficult concept to test.
