You will also get a chance to talk to current and past students about how they coped with their A level years and about their experiences in university.

Mathematics requires structure and discipline. There are three aspects of mathematics. Skill acquisition, knowledge of mathematical principles and problem-solving. Skill acquisition takes practice. A knowledge of mathematical principles comes with understanding and appreciation, and problem-solving strategies are something you can develop over a short period of time and continuously apply.

It is important you understand the foundations of chemistry. Only then will everything else logically fit into place. The AS level content is straightforward and intuitive and up to 45% of the chemistry course involves calculations. Competence in these calculations can be achieved over time which is why it is useful to start practising early.

Physics is about the behaviour of physical entities described using base and derived quantities. All objects are modelled as particles and the simplified model enables predictions to be made about the behaviour of the objects. The mathematics required for physics is fairly rudimentary, generally involving rearranging formulae and substitution.

This is a complex A level requiring a broader skillset of memorisation, comprehension and written communication. There is a substantial amount of data analysis involved and this A level builds and develops scientific thinking. For example, the appreciation that correlation does not mean causation or recognising when a scientific study is inconclusive because it is incomplete develops the students' critical thinking. As with all the sciences, observation is paramount as is appreciating the importance of the obvious.

Possibly a panel interview in front of 3 people (usually 2 staff members and 1 current student). The interview lasts around 15 mins and general questions are asked.

Typical questions might be:

- Why medicine?
- Why Barts?
- What could you contribute to our university/students union?
- What makes a good doctor/dentist?
- What qualities do you have?

These are generally the types of questions given, not really anything to try throw candidates off. Try and have a conversation and not sound too rehearsed. Also looking at some research papers or articles of interest to discuss could be helpful.
