Hi, My son is presently studying medicine at Oxford. To get ideas, he volunteered to work in a residential home. There he met a guy who played practical jokes on him. One day he came back and the guy had died of a horrible brain condition. My son wanted to know if he had suffered, so he did a humungous EPQ on the explanatory gap in the brain. Either get inspiration from residents, or join your local medical school library (get your parents to write you a letter giving permission and bring ID) You cannot borrow books but you can download any papers they have. Bring up articles on palliative care and Euthanasia and get some ideas.

On amazon I found this

https://www.amazon.co.uk/Right-Die-E...gateway&sr=8-2

https://www.amazon.co.uk/Euthanasia-...gateway&sr=8-3

Even an interesting DVD

Which uni are you aiming at? I am writing a book about Oxford admissions and all my proteges are writing their own chapters about how they got in. My son is writing the medical chapter in the summer. But I wrote a chapter myself about how he got in. If you like, I can email you or pm you the details. No point in keeping my knowledge all to myself.

Hi ali.a1,

I know there are twice as many places at Cambridge than Oxford, but you will need A*A*A to get in, as opposed to A*AA for Oxford. My son was put off by this, and sure enough he just scraped through with A*AA. He says reading medicine at Oxford is 10 times better than even he thought.

Will email/pm you what I have.
