3 core: CHEM 110, POP Health 111 and BIOSCI 107 Typical day?
4 hours of lecture, almost everyday! 1 lab per paper, every 2 weeks
You need to go home and study Usually one hour per lecture
So almost 4 hours study every day Difficulty understanding a subject?
Similar to high school Why is it so hard?
Just the content is HUGE!!! How much? High school content is learned over 1 year Imagine 5 times the content,
You have to learn it in ⅓ of the time within 12 weeks
And you need to get a high score on it! Not about how smart you are,
It’s about how you study To spend less time, study a lot
You need a good system For a good system, check out my other videos Semester 2!
1 core paper – MEDSCI142! The hardest and content heavy 3 non-core papers By the way, non-core papers are different
if you do biomed or healthsci How much of a grade do you need? You need around 2 As 2 A+s to have a reasonable
chance of getting into medicine Every year, they are slightly different,
This year a lot of people got 4 A+s, which means that
You need to be more competitive But every year, the exams are slightly different
More difficult, less difficult, but depending on that
Uhm….. No matter what other people are doing,
You just wanna aim for your best, which is 100% When do you sit the UCAT?
During the middle of the year, make sure you apply early, check out their website! When do you do the interview?
