Hi Fasih,
It’s Kate from med success,I hope you’re well. I thought I would let you know how my application to med school has gone! I was thrilled to receive all of my offers after interviews with  Sheffield, Nottingham, Leicester and Liverpool!! It was difficult choosing a firm choice, but went with Sheffield after much deliberation. Thank you so much to you and your team for such great advice and preparation. I felt confident, relaxed and able to give good answers (most of the time at least!).
Thanks again!

Hello Dr Khan,
I hope you are well!
I am sorry for not contacting you sooner, my pre-registration year and ucas kept me busy but I finally got a day off today so could sit down and write this email. I ended up receiving 3 interviews for med school: Birmingham, Leicester and Keele University, I withdrew from Keele and did not attend the interview as I received offers from Birmingham and Leicester!
I have accepted Birmingham as it is the Graduate entry and a 4 year degree which I will be starting on 1st Sep 2017.
I just wanted to say thank you so much for the mock interview support session and the MedSuccess event, I honestly don’t know how to explain how much I appreciated it as I can now finally go to med school!
In addition, if I am available I would love to help with future MedSuccess events!
