Degree: Medicine (Bachelors) - Oxford, Hertford College University
Hi, my name is Aditi and I'm currently studying Medicine at Oxford University. I have always had a passion for Sciences and Maths and I'd love to help you out with any struggles you're facing in these subjects! Having been a Peer Mentoring to students from 11-17 years, I have the skills and experience required from a tutor.
I'd like these tutorial to be lead by YOU. It is vital that we go at your pace and focus on understanding the key concepts to be applied later on.
Diagrams, charts and analogies are useful ways of condensing a great deal information, but I want to work with you to discover your best method of learning.
EXAM TECHNIQUE is also important, and going over past paper questions is a great way to focus your learning and find out what the examiners expect from you.
Medical School Applications
In Year 13, I managed to secure offers from the four universities I applied to; Oxford, Nottingham, Birmingham and King's. Preparation is key and I'm here to share my experience and give my advice on the application process, particularly helping out with personal statements, admissions tests and interviews.
If you'd like to get in touch, send me a 'WebMail' or book a 'Meet the Tutor Session'. Remember to tell me your exam board and what you're struggling with.
I look forward to hearing from you soon!

1. Light energy from the Sun excites electrons in chlorophyll and the excited electrons are emitted.
2. The chlorophyll molecule is now positively charged and chemically less stable. The lost electrons get replaced with electrons released from the photolysis of water: 2H2O --> 4H+ + 4e- + O2.
3. The excited electrons pass through the electron transport chain, a passage involving a series of redox reactions. This occurs in the thylakoid membranes.
4. At each transfer, energy is released and is used to combine
ADP + Pi -->ATP
5. NADP is the final electron acceptor and gets reduced to form NADPH. This goes on to be used in the light independent reaction of photosynthesis.
6. Oxygen is a by product of this reaction and can either be used in aerobic respiration of the plant, or it can diffuse out as a waste product.see more
Mark-release-recapture is a technique used to estimate the size of a population of a particular species. The steps involved are:
1. Capture and count animals.
2. Mark them in a way which is not toxic/harmful to them.
3. Release them back into the community.
4. Capture a second sample and count them.
5. Record the number of marked individuals recaptured.
The estimated population size is:
(total no. in 1st sample x total no. in 2nd sample) / no.of marked individuals recaptured
However, this technique only works if the following factors are in place:
1. There are few births and deaths in the population.
2. The population has a definite boundary; there is no emigration or immigration.
3. The proportion of marked:unmarked individuals in the second sample is the same as the proportion in the population as a whole.
4. Marked individuals from the first sample distribute themselves evenly amongst the rest of the population and have sufficient time to do so.
5. The method of marking is non toxic / does not make them more conspicuous to predation.
6. The method of marking is not lost / rubbed off during the investigation.see more
