The Unofficial Guide to Getting Into Medical School
Fuelled by our constant passion to help others get into medicine, we have set up a vast network of the most knowledgeable and most experienced people of them all: over 600 successful medical students from all medical schools within the UK.
This book is the result of over 300 surveys and focus groups among successful medical students. We haven’t forgotten your views! The Unofficial Guide to Getting into Medical School is the first book of its kind involving current medical school applicants in developing its content. With your help, we have managed to understand what you want to see less often, and what to understand more of. This book is a project based on YOUR real needs, on the most commonly encountered uncertainties, and difficulties as emphasised by YOU, the applicant.
For years now, we’ve been helping applicants like you to successfully secure a place at medical school. This book will serve as a map, guiding you through every single step of the application process. Make this book your friend, your fellow companion through the tough, stormy days of the medical school process.
This book is aimed at medical school applicants, covering core steps of the application process, as well as tips and tricks from successful applicants, medical students, doctors, and academics. Uniquely, this comprehensive guide is the product of a large network of 600+ medical students and junior doctors who have teamed up to help you succeed.
We are fortunate to have an amazing team made of medical students representing almost all 34 UK Medical Schools. They have been in the same situation as you in the past and are now eager to pass on their best tips to help you succeed!
