Medicine is arguably the most competitive university degree to apply for, with up to 20 applications per place, and that's only counting those that think they are good enough, not the 100s more that want to apply but don't know how. This book is unique in that it is based on real data from over 300 surveys and focus groups of successful medical students from over 32 medical schools, as well as live data from those currently applying for medical school, encapsulating their current anxieties and top tips (first book of its kind). The book starts by exploring motivations for entering medicine, so that the potential applicant is aware of the reality of the rewards and drawbacks of the profession. We then go on to describe essential concepts and knowledge required to understand the profession and appear knowledgeable in the interview. Next, an in depth focus on the application process, including work experience, personal statements, entrance exams, and interviews. Finally, we provide additional guidance for international students, mature students, and those applying having not been successful the first time.
