Essay Competition Details
Your essay must aim to answer the question ‘What are the biggest challenges that secondary school students face when transitioning into medical, dental or veterinary medicine students?’ Your maximum word count is 2500 words, including the title and subheadings.
You must include references if you have made use of them, although this will not be included in the word count. Essays will be marked down if the word count is exceeded. Please structure your essay and make use of paragraphs where appropriate. We are looking for essays that have a unique message and insight into the title.
The use of personal experiences and your own thoughts are encouraged. Please use Calibri font and size 12 for the main body of the text. Headings can use a larger sized font at your discretion.
Students from any year or background are eligible to apply, provided that you have an interest in pursuing a medical, dental or veterinary career. The deadline is 5pm on the 30th April. Submissions after this deadline will not be accepted. Please email your submissions to email@example.com
The winner of the National Essay Competition will have their essay featured in the next issue of the Mentor Magazine. You will receive a certificate in the post and a £25 Amazon Voucher. You will also be invited to receive your award, alongside Medic Mentor scholarship holders, school ambassadors, and presentation prize winners, at the Medic Mentor Award’s Evening on the 1st of December.
