On Monday afternoon, we were delighted to welcome two Alumni, Alex and Mimi, into school to visit and speak to the VetMed elective group.
Alex and Mimi left the school 5 years ago and took different paths on their journey to become a doctor. The girls were able to listen to their experiences of A Levels, the application process and what studying medicine is like at Leicester and Leeds University. Lots of interesting questions were asked and the girls were keen to know about lectures, workload, dissection, clubs and life as a medic.
Shreya commented: “On Monday, the VetMed group were lucky enough to have Mimi and Alex, former students of NHS, talk to us about their different journeys into medicine. They gave us so many tips about the process, including for the UCAT exam and for interviews as well as about Uni life in general! It was great hearing from successful medical students and asking them all our questions and was a great way to finish the term at VetMed!”
