Getting The Most Out Of Work Experiences

My journey into medical school was…quite out of the ordinary. From 4 unsuccessful med applications, to applying for biomedical science through clearing and finally securing a place at Anglia Ruskin’s medical school, I’m genuinely impressed by how far I’ve come, regardless of the hurdles thrown my way. I know plenty of you are in a similar situation and can understand and relate to my stress. Therefore, I hope sharing my journey will uplift your morale and bolster your confidence with your medical application process, as well as steering clear of the pitfalls I encountered.

Who Wants To Be A Medical Student?

Applying to medical school can sometimes feel like starring on the game show “Who wants to be a Millionaire”. The suspense as you feel the eyes of onlookers in the crowds; your parents, your teachers, your siblings and friends. Your palms begin to perspire as the Game Show host, or in this case, the medical admissions team stare into your eyes. They ask you question after question, the stakes slowly getting greater until you hit the million-pound question. The final barrier. One more step and you’ve done it. Hit the jackpot, and reached your goal. You’d be a millionaire, a medic.

The Journey to Medical School: How to Avoid Getting Overwhelmed and Excel in Your Application.

Firstly, you should be so proud of yourself that you’re applying to medicine. While the process will be tough, require lots of resilience and determination, the reward of becoming a doctor will be worth it in the end. But I know what you’re thinking: “Medicine seems so hard to get into, there’s so much to do (and the UCAT is the strangest exam I’ve ever seen)”. Those were my thoughts too, and I was so overwhelmed at the beginning – it really can make our brains frazzle sometimes. But let’s break this down into chunks. This is how I aced my journey to medical school.

Medical School Rollercoaster: A Journey of Resilience, Rejection, and Redemption

Around this time last year I received four medicine rejections and thought that that was the end of my medicine journey for that year. Seeing everyone around me receive med offer after med offer, picking out student accommodation and hearing my friends talking about their medicine courses in lessons with teachers was incredibly difficult. I had given it my all and it just didn’t seem to work out for me.

How to Successfully Reapply to Medical School: Learn From My Journey of Overcoming Rejection

The next few months were when I began to doubt myself gain. I was disappointed when I received rejections from the schools I applied to. However, seeing my friends going to university brought back these feelings. I felt frustrated that I had worked hard throughout the year and was still unsuccessful in securing a place at medical school. Shifting my focus to concentrating on my plans for the future has allowed me to become more confident in myself. I was able to reflect on my previous application in order to submit a stronger one and was able to make the most of my gap year.
