What do you get?

Is consulting necessary?

You’ve already taken the first step: you’ve decided you want to study medicine. So why do you need a mentor? Do the other 20,000 applicants who apply each year use a consultant? It’s well known that there is a large disparity in access to medical school in the UK. 80% of medical students come from roughly 20% of the sixth forms. What does that tell us? Accurate, up-to-date information with trained coaching makes a wealth of difference in a student’s outcome. So no, not all applicants use a consultant, but those who do have a great advantage. 

Admissions Consulting Overview

  • When should I buy consulting?

    The ideal time to have a consulting session is 1 to 2 years before applying. When you meet Dr Jiva early, there is a lot more that she can do to help you strengthen your application, and the earlier you understand how the system works, the better you can prepare. Most students get in touch within their application year and her success rate is still 100% getting them in. Medical schools in the UK vary widely in how they screen students for interviews, so focusing on where to apply with your profile can be a game changer.

  • How will the session be delivered?

    Once you’ve registered for a consultation session, Dr. Jiva will send you a detailed questionnaire to fill in about their profile and will prepare your session accordingly so it’s personalized to you.

    She will then run a session via video conference. She usually recommends that in the session the student is accompanied by close relatives that support them in their application – this is often parents for undergraduate applicants, or a significant other or a friend for graduate applicants.

Dr Jiva has experience helping students get in who have the IB, various european baccalaureates, US and Canadian high school grades, Indian grades, as well as more than 10 other educational marking systems. She can help you understand the strength of your results compared with the medical school’s requirements. If you have a French Baccalaureate out of 20, you may think that there is an equivalent to your grade in British System. But unfortunately, it is not that simple. If you apply to UK medical schools with the French Baccalaureate, some medical schools will not accept it even if you are the top of your class, while some may require you to have an average of 16 and others an average of 14. This is true for grades from all educational systems where you cannot simply think about what is the equivalent British grade, but instead you need to find out for each programme how your achievements would be considered. Dr Jiva can speed this up for you 10 fold. 

Another consideration which is specific to international applicants is how to decide where to apply, as beyond the selection process, the competition ratio for internationals may be the most significant factor affecting your chances. On the medical schools website you will find how many international students they accept, as well as how many total applicants apply. But sadly, that does not tell you much about the competition within the international applicants pool. It is easy to get fooled and apply to a school that accepts 14 international students rather than one that accepts 4, but maybe the one that accepts 14 received 100 international applicants, while the one that accepts 4 only got 8 applications. These numbers are not correct but they illustrate a very real point which occur every year. Dr Jiva will help you understand where you have the best chances taking into account your fee status and the international competition ratios.

    Great advice on applications

    Very useful, mainly advice on which university to apply to. It is very clear that she has alot of knowledge regarding the matter and she opened my eyes to factors i had previously not considered.

    Medical school admissions consulting

    Excellent service ! The amount of detail backed by data and experience is out of this world. Applying for medical school is such a complex process with so much conflicting information, plus the medical schools seem to keep moving the goalpost. We needed an independent review, someone to look at our best attributes and match them to appropriate medical schools. This is exactly what we got from Dr Jiva ! At the end of the session we had 4 sensible options written down and felt much more relaxed about the way forward. We honestly felt this service was great value for money and after this experience have applied for further courses run by the company. Well done guys and keep up the good work

    Personal Statement Review and Admission Consulting

    Excellent. I wish that we had requested an earlier personal statement review so that my daughter would have had more time to rework the proposed content in the light of the feedback. We had superb support from Dr Jivah. She ensured that we understood the feedback and how the personal statement could be tailored to the expectations of medical schools to which my daughter was applying.

    Medical School Admission Consulting

    We purchased a session to discuss how to target UCAS choices for the medical schools which were most appropriate for my daughter given her UCAT score and GCSEs. We benefited from detailed, individually tailored advice and left the call equipped with options to make informed decisions. It is very confusing and we needed expert help.
