Who am I?
My name is Arun, I’m a junior doctor working in London and graduated from Cambridge University 2 years ago. I’ve helped 100s of students over the last 10 years or so get into med school with things like personal statements, picking uni choices, the UCAT & BMAT exams and medical school interviews. I was the lead UCAT & BMAT tutor for Kaplan Test Prep for 5 years and helped write their materials. I started up a company called Easy Medical Interviews to help students for their medical school interviews. I’ve decided to put all my experience over the years onto Youtube now so its completely free for you guys and hopefully you find it useful!
