You’ve read all the advice on how to get into medicine, but what happens after you (finally) receive an offer? What happens after the happily ever after?
The countdown to medical school is a total mix of emotions and it is hard to know how to prepare for the unknown. Luckily, thousands of medical students have survived this and so will you! So read on for my top 10 tips on how to prepare for medical school.
1. You are good enough!
After the initial relief and euphoria, you may find yourself questioning what on earth you’ve let yourself in for. Do not worry because this is completely normal. It is very common to doubt whether you want to do medicine or whether you are good enough for it. Be enthusiastic about medicine and remember that the admissions staff know exactly what they are looking for: you!
2. Invest in a planner
An all-round good habit. The list of things to sort for university is endless, so a planner to help you keep on track is a must. Of course, the skill of organising your time is essential at medical school too, so it is best to start as you mean to go on.
