About me

Hi, I'm Abdul! I've just started my first year at clinical school having graduated with first class honours, finishing the undergraduate half of my degree (first two years medical science, third year social sciences intercalated BA). That means I've got a whole three years left to qualify, so I thought I'd put my experience in exams/uni applications to good use by tutoring! Exams and university can, naturally, seem very daunting, and when I was at your stage I found the help of past students hugely beneficial.


I hope that I'll be of similar use to you now, advising you on what to do and what not to, as well as serving as a source of information on all things school and university related. Feel free to ask about my experience at school, university applications, and current university life. I'm very lucky to have been able to keep busy during university with a whole range of extracurriculars; I've done everything from roles in the student body, sports, and student activism, to travelling, learning languages, and undertaking summer research posts abroad.


At this crucial stage of your academic career, the more information you have the better; making the right decisions now is very important as your A-Levels and university can determine quite a lot about what you end up doing in later life. Though that sounds scary, you're not going through it alone, with teachers, careers advisors and past students (like myself) all here to help!

About my sessions

As a fourth year medical student I should by now (I hope) have gotten the hang of how to do exams, having lost count of how many I've done in my time! It also means I that I know full well how stressful exams can be - but I also know that they don't have to be that way.


All forms of assessment, be they written exams, university applications and interviews, or dissertations, require three main skills: organisation, commitment, and logical thinking. All three can be developed by first reflecting to figure out what you're sure you know and what you're sure you don't know, and then having a teacher or tutor handy to help you figure out what you didn't realise you didn't know (a bit confusing I know, but it's here that students make most mistakes). It's precisely this method that I use when tutoring.


I like to begin tutorials by asking you to let me know what it is that you feel that you've understood well, and what you feel you haven't understood quite so well. We'll then go through the topic, gradually entering into the parts you don't feel quite as confident in. From there we'll go into areas you haven't mentioned - these are the things you might not have realised you didn't know. Once we have a fuller picture of the topic we'll go through questions, past exams, and set up a long term revision schedule to ensure you enter into the exam stress free. Practise really does make perfect, and my job is to help you reach perfect.

Questions Abdulrahman has answered

How do I remember the way the blood moves through the heart?

Rule #1: Arteries take blood Away from the heart, while Veins are the vessels that giVe the heart blood to begin with! Rule #2: Blood always Arrives in the Atria, and leaVes from the Ventricles. Rule #3: The purpose of the heart is to take blood from the Rest of the body to the Lungs (to be oxygenated), before returning it to the rest of the body. We can use this to figure out that blood goes through the Right side of the heart first, and then the Left side after going through the lungs. If we know these three rules we can figure out the way the blood moves through the heart! (1) Blood returns through the Vena Cava (a vein so big it's like a cave!) to the Right Atrium; (2) the Right Atrium contracts, bringing the blood to the Right Ventricle; (3) the Right Ventricle contracts, pumping the blood through the Pulmonary Artery (pulmonary means "of the lungs" in latin) to the lungs; (4) oxygenated blood returns from the lungs via the Pulmonary Vein to the Left Atrium; (5) the Left Atrium contracts, pumping the blood to the Left Ventricle; (6) the Left Ventricle contracts, pumping the blood through the Aorta (a really big artery) to the rest of the body!Rule #1: Arteries take blood Away from the heart, while Veins are the vessels that giVe the heart blood to begin with!
