    Hey, I got an average of 7.1 in S1 and S2 last year the past papers are gold. Do them once, do them twice, do them until you can't benefit from them anymore because you remember the answers. I also practiced with other similar tests like TSA and IMAT. I don't know if this is the ideal technique, but I tried to first do the tests under timed conditions, and after that go them through question by question to analyze my approach and see if there were any shortcuts I missed etc. Good luck!

    Nowhere - I'm not British and I decided to make a last minute application to the UK last year (with very little preparation as I was also super busy at school at the moment). The med school admissions process in my country is totally different from that in the UK, so my application overall was not good to british standards. After being rejected post-interview from Oxford, I withdrew my other applications and am now reapplying as a stronger applicant.

    Ensure your knowledge if up to date if you don't do all the sciences.

    Agree with past papers.

    There are some books which can be useful. I am not up to date enough to recommend any specifically.

    Would not recommend courses - way overpriced.
