Success at a Russell Group University

Bosworth’s alumni, Hossein, just started his graduate medical training at Sheffield University and shared with us:

“After my graduation from Bosworth Independent College, I started to study BSc Biomedical Sciences at Newcastle University. As a student, I gained skills and knowledge relevant to medicine in a Russell Group university. However, my application for medicine was rejected in the first two years.

Before starting the third year, I decided to gain more experience and got a work placement in China for 3 weeks. I started working as a lifeguard and swimming teacher in a local community leisure centre and voluntary work in a hospice. In addition, I planned for the admission tests and interview in advance.

Getting into a medical school was a 5-year target for me and now I am quite pleased to receive an offer from Sheffield Medical School, as one of the top UK medical schools covering great teaching hospitals. I really look forward to the upcoming student life and career.”

Hossein shared his experience of medical school interviews with our Year 13 medics:

  • Practise interview questions on your own – make a video of yourself, look back at it to check your posture, body language, how clearly you are speaking, whether you appear calm and confident!
  • Read widely before the interview – not just books about medical interviews but more general information about the life of a doctor or dentist in today’s NHS.
  • Finally – succeeding in your interview is as much about how you prepare as your personality and intelligence.

Each year many of our students with exceptional academic ability will apply to highly competitive courses, such as Medicine, Veterinary Science or Dentistry.

These degree courses are amongst the best in the world and students face intense competition for places on these undergraduate courses. Top grades at A-level are not enough to secure a place; our in-depth knowledge of the additional requirements for each course and institution, coupled with our expertise in preparing students to face the rigours of university selection, greatly increases their chances of achieving their goals.
