Like most other people hoping to apply to medicine this year, I’ve been preparing for the UKCAT so I thought that this would be a good time to make a list of some resources I’ve found useful when doing my own preparation.
I love stationery a lot. So I end up spending way too much money on stationery that is used by a lot of studygrams, just because I think it looks pretty or some stupid reason like that. The problem is that there is usually a bunch of cheaper alternatives if you just take the time to look. Luckily, I’ve compiled a list of some of the most useful dupes that I’ve found for popular studygram stationery so that you don’t have to!
I’m currently doing biology and chemistry at A Level so I’ve had to write up quite a few core practicals over the last year. Hopefully this printable will be helpful to a few of you in the same position as me because I find it such a pain to write them up!
A few days ago I made a post about how I make my summaries for psychology and I mentioned making a printable that is pretty similar to how I design them. I’ve made this in a few different colours so you have plenty of choice as to which one you pick!
If you’re doing A Level psychology (or any psychology subject really), you’ll know there’s a lot of content to remember so having pages and pages of notes is not the best way to revise. Here’s how I split the studies up into simple sections which can (usually) be condensed into about 2 sides of A4.
Earlier this week I asked people for book recommendations that you should read before applying for medical school and I got some great responses so I thought I’d share them here. You can obviously just read these for fun but they should at least be kind of helpful for medical hopefuls.
When applying for medical school, you often find yourself worrying about the grades needed in order to get a place. Unfortunately, good grades are not enough of a guarantee because pretty much every applicant will hit the minimum AAA boundary needed or go far above it. Many medical schools expect a variety of work experience within a range of areas to show that you have some knowledge and experience of the area you hope to go into. Whilst it may be simple in theory, in reality places are often limited and you may find yourself unable to do a lot of things.
When I start revising I often feel overwhelmed about where to start. I made this printable to keep track of the topics you have left to study and how confident you are with them so you don’t forget to study something important. You can download it from the link at the bottom of this post!
With the new year fast approaching and 2016 finally drawing to a close, it’s time to do one of my favourite things- buy a new planner. The idea of a book that can make you organised for the first time in your life is very appealing, but unfortunately I’m usually not great at sticking with planners. That’s why I’m come up with a list of 5 cute but relatively inexpensive planners that won’t make you feel bad if you abandon them half way through January.
I feel like this fits it with my post from earlier in week about language resources. I often find myself using flashcards to make verb tables but this is a very time consuming way to do them, so I made this sheet.
