That's a lot of questions...
Interview asked science and some ethical questions that make you think around the existing knowledge you have. Prepared by just being up to date on health and science news.
Prepared for the BMAT and UKCAT with past papers. Others do lots of science revision, but as i did all 4 sciences anyway i felt it wasn't necessary.
I had 8 months volunteering in a disabled school. Other extra-curriculars weren't very relevant.
Hmm the books like 'phantoms in the brain' are very common for applicants to read, but they are common for a reason; they are educational but also fascinating books and a great read. Just sticking on BBC health and that sort of thing is fine - doesn't have to be high level stuff.
Main tip is just to make sure you do well on the BMAT - that is what makes or breaks an Oxford application.
I want to get into Oxford to study medicine and I was wondering if you could help me
What sort of things were you asked in the interview and how did you prepare for it?
How did you prepare for the BMAT? & UKCAT?
What sort of extra-curriculars, volunteering and work-experience did you do?
What medical books or ethical books you read (or any other books which you would recommend)?
And just any tips and advice would be really helpful.
