    I just filled it out with the experiences I did. It's pretty straight forward? Have a look at the gmc qualities of a doctor and see if you can think of an instance where you have showed one of these qualities and then apply it to the questions. Hope this helps and best of luck!😄

    Thanks for the reply! What type of experince did you mention? I do volunteering at a hospital and I am a young leader at SEN Scouts, St John's ambulance cadet and medsoc president. Are these the types of 'work experience's to include?' Or do I need to include hospital work experince ie shadowing? Thanks!

    That's all fantastic! Looks like you've been keeping busy! Try and show all varieties of your experiences, reflect on what you learnt from each or how it helped you to develop as a potential health care professional. Keele look at this ALOT so really put a lot of effort into it. It's important to demonstrate that you have really tried to expose yourself to the sort of situations you will be faced with or that are relevent to a career in medicine. If you can - make your experiences medical related (this is not essential). Really read the questions and figure out exactly what they might be wanting to hear before you answer. On my form I had hospital work experience, various volunteer work, a trip to Tanzania to work in hospitals and my job as a health care assistant in a nursing home. Are you applying for 2017 entry?
