Asked by Tala · 2 years ago

How should I go about writing my college essay?

Hey! Well being from the UK I’m certainly not qualified to answer specifically. But for me, normally I like to choose the topic, and layout the general points I want to talk about. Then I expand them slowly with evidence or examples for each. Then I try to find things that link between them and link them together. I find starting this way makes the essay much more clear, concise and reads a lot be... more

Applying for Medicine

Asked by Diana · 2 years ago

Does the university you go to affect your chances of getting a job in medicine?

Not at all, all universities in the UK have basically 100% employment rate, and if they don’t it’s because of students doing PhDs. It does have an impact if you want to go into research, and may impact where you do your foundation years. Say for example if a university offers an iBSC, this will boost your points on your final application when job searching, and so gives you a better chance of gett... more

Physics

Asked by Lucy · 2 years ago

A chip in a bowl of salty water - will the water move into the chip, away from the chip or not move at all?

No matter what the specific situation is, it’s important to remember that water always moves from an area of low to high salt concentration, down the water potential gradient. So in this example, assuming the water has a higher concentration of salt than the chip, water in the chip will move out and into the water bowl. This would cause the chip to shrink!
