“Applying for Medicine from a Computer Science undergraduate degree hasn’t been the simplest process. However, Alexandra helped me gain my confidence. I was aiming to get a score of 670 in the UCAT but I achieved 742 (2970 overall)! Alexandra prepared so much before the lessons and really went above and beyond. She sent me useful resources, such as articles/book recommendations in between that she thought I could use for interviews. It meant so much to me that she cares about my outcome and her support has made so much difference. I found Alexandra’s teaching style so helpful. She’s honest and direct in where I am going wrong. Also also gives so much positive feedback, which I found really encouraging. I have gained so much more confidence in my abilities with her.”
