Seminar: Successful Preparation for Applying for Medicine, Dentistry and other Medical-Related Degrees

Seminar: Successful Preparation for Applying for Medicine, Dentistry and other Medical-Related Degrees

Type: Seminar
Target: F.4 or Above (Seminar)
Location: British United

When should you start preparing, if you’re aiming to apply for medicine, dentistry, veterinary medicine and other medical-related programmes in the UK? If you’re applying for medicine, dentistry, veterinary medicine through UCAS, not only that you have to have the right grades in the right subjects, you will also have to meet the much earlier deadline in October. If you’re applying for other medical-related subjects such as physiotherapy and occupational therapy, you’re highly recommended to make the first-round UCAS deadline in January.

In addition to good grades in public exams, some universities will also require one of the BMAT and UKCAT examinations as part of their entry requirement. And it’s almost essential that you have a certain amount of relevant job shadowing or voluntary work experience. If you include all of these and the others, it’d normally take a year or two ahead for preparation, if not longer!

Details of the Seminar

In the Seminar, the Principal of sixth-form college Bellerbys College Cambridge will explain how you can best prepare for your application, covering things like UCAS deadlines, BMAT and UKCAT examinations, the Personal Statement, the right combination of A-levels subjects as well as other job shadowing and voluntary work experience:

  • BMAT & UKCAT: What are they testing you in these exams? When do they take place? Applicants should also be made aware that the majority of medical schools only accept one of these two exams as part of your qualifications. So you will have work out your university choices to find out whether it’s a better idea to sit both exams.
  • Preparing the Personal Statement: In this part, the Principal will explain the basic requirement of a personal statement. He will also share a few tips to help students enrich their personal statement.
  • Multi-Mini Interviews (MMI), the New Interview Format of Medical School

Apart from these, the Principal will also introduce the Medical School Preparation programmes tailor-made for aspiring medical school applicants. Alongside their GCE A-levels studies, eligible students will be allowed to take part in the following extra learning activities to enhance their chance of making a successful application:

  • Attend medical school lectures
  • A mentoring scheme with current medical students
  • Job shadowing and volunteering opportunities
  • A guaranteed interview opportunity: Bellerbys College Brighton students joining the Medical School Preparation programmes will be guaranteed an interview at the Brighton & Sussex Medical School (BSMS) – a joint-venture between University of Sussex and University of Brighton
  • Medical school interview training
The seminar is suitable for students interested in applying to Medicine, Dentistry, Vet Medicine and other Medical-Related subjects (such as Physiotherapy, Occupational Therapy, etc).

Under the diamond model, boys and girls in Ipswich High School will join separate classes at Year 4 and below.

Mathematics, English, Sciences and Physical Education), but participate in extracurricular activities together. It’s only in sixth form that Ipswich High School will become fully co-educational in the traditional sense, so that students enjoy the benefits of both single-sex and nixed-sex education.

UK University & Pathways Seminar

UK University & Pathways Seminar

Type: Seminar
Target: F.4 or above
Location: British United

Undergraduate Year 1 in Top 30 UK universities normally require 544 to 555 in HKDSE, with subject-specific requirement depending on your choices of programmes. If students fall short of such requirement, they can progress through International Diploma and University Foundation Courses. These programmes accept entry at 433 to 322 in HKDSE and enable qualified students to progress onto Year 2 and Year 1 of an undergraduate programme in Top 30 UK universities respectively. Students aiming for top universities and highly-competitive subjects such as medicine and actuarial sciences, however, will benefit from the 1-Year A-levels which also allows them to apply to universities in Hong Kong through the Non-Jupas route.

In the seminar, our education consultants will introduce these four options for HKDSE students. Content includes university options, subject options, entry requirements, plus the procedures and important dates of UCAS.

Content Highlights

  • How does UCAS work? What are the important dates?
  • How to make best use of the five application quotas in your UCAS application?
  • Is it possible to have the sixth and the seventh quota?
  • Tips on writing a winning personal statement.
  • Options of university and academic disciplines in pathway programmes.
  • The option of One-Year A-levels and a brief analysis of Non-Jupas admission data.

Whitgift School is a top all boys boarding school with a very advantageous location in London (Zone 5). With the options of GCE A-levels and International Baccalaureate (IB) in sixth form, Whitgift School enjoys a very good reputation in academic work and music and has in the past (2008-2011) been listed as one of the best 50 schools in the UK, out of 3000 schools. In recent years, however, Whitgift School has refused to be included in league tables published by newspapers in the UK – a move employed by many top independent schools to avoid parents paying too much attention on public exam results and overlooking other important aspects of education. That doesn’t mean that Whitgift School has lowered its standard on academic work though. In 2017, the A*-B rate in GCE A-levels remains an impressive 88%. In International Baccalaureate (IB) exams, the average score is 39.7, out of the 45 full marks – results that would have put the School in top positions in any league tables.

In Music, Whitgift School is famous for the orchestra, which collaborated with the The Royal Philharmonic Orchestra in London in 2011 and has performed in many other countries including Japan, Spain, German and more.

Since 2013, Whitgift School has expanded its boarding provision and can now provide more than 100 boarding places – which still does not satisfy the demand, making competition for places extremely fierce. Students are advised to apply two to three years in advance.
