If you have certain medical schools in mind, we will check the public information to date to ensure we don’t miss anything for that particular medical school
We can help you with extenuating circumstances, for example medical conditions. We are fully qualified NHS medical doctors.
How do we help you?
In our UCAS statement checking service, you e-mail your draft statement to us and we provide you feedback via e-mail on how you can improve your application.
You can also book a session with a tutor by telephone or Skype who will help you write your draft from scratch if needed. You then e-mail your draft to us for final feedback.
All materials that you e-mail to us are strictly confidential and destroyed following completion of the service.
Who is going to help me with my statement?
Our team only consists of fully qualified doctors who are also undergraduate tutors at UCLAN, Manchester and Lancaster medical schools.
We do not use medical students or recruit random faceless tutors from the Internet. Our team is totally in house.
For 2018 entry, we achieved over a 96% success rate for invitation for interview
What we cannot do for you
Please do not request that we write the personal statement in full for you. You will declare to UCAS that the personal statement is your own and you must write your application in your own words
We are aware that there are other companies that claim to do this for you. Our advice is not to use them, both ethically and not to risk being caught out during the application process.
We expect the application to be written at a sixth form student level, not at a university lecturers level. We can tell in your interview if someone else has likely written your statement for you. That is why Blue Peanut helps you write your own statement in your own words.
