Chun Yu Chan (Jeremy) took his A-levels at Kings before moving to Queen's University Belfast to complete medical school.
"After doing my AS level at Kings, I spent two months in a hospital doing some volunteering. During those two months I was able to shadow doctors, nurses, physical therapists and occupational therapists and I knew from that experience that Medicine was the right choice for me.
In order to get into universities in the UK you have to apply through a system called UCAS and you have to include your academic results as well as your personal statement — a statement which has your information, whereby you have to convince the admissions team why they should take you. Thanks to Melrose, my CSS teacher, we did mine together, I think mine was perfect.
It’s quite different from Kings at university. You have to manage your time very well, you have exams (like at Kings) but no one will remind you what to study and when to study — you have to be independent. But thanks to Kings, I was prepared for that."
