Ashwin Paul Bobby

Ashwin Paul Bobby, a grade 12 student from The Indian High School, Dubai was guided by Mr. Varun, Mr.Vinod, Miss. Iunia and Miss. Veronica through his entry into undergraduate medicine in the UK. He applied to top universities like  Nottingham, Birmingham, King's, Queen's Belfast, UCLAN, RCSI and so far successfully received an invitation call from UCLAN, Nottingham, Queen's Belfast.


The assistance provided to me by Brighterprep is the most important reason for receiving interview calls. Their personalized tips and instructions have immensely helped me through my application procedure. For me, one of the most standout things that they have done would be conducting the mock MMIs with multiple stations which have enabled me to be more familiar with what i will be facing so as to reduce my nervousness.

Anshuman Madasu

He applied for Medicince in UK to University of Nottingham, University of Liverpool, Queen's University Belfast, University of East Anglia and University of Central Lancashire and got Interview invitation from all the universities.

Anshuman's Testimonial:

Brighterprep is an outstanding institution and it has supported me throughout the application process. Initially,  before joining brighter prep I was very confused, lost and had absolutely no clue about where to apply. But, Varun sir guided me throughout the journey and helped me select an excellent set of universities suitable for me. He also motivated me to push harder academically as well as in extra curricular activities so that the medical schools have absolutely no reason to reject my application and it is evident from the results that he did a great job. Vinod sir also played a crucial role in helping us prepare for the UKCAT exam. He made the lessons very interactive and fun. Moreover, he ensured that everyone was mentally prepared as well as aware of all the types of questions that could appear in the test. Every staff in brighterprep is caring and is always there to help you. I highly recommended them and thank them for helping me to settle with my career decision.

Ashwati Nair's Profile:

Ashwati Nair, an IB Diploma graduate of the Dubai American Academy, had a predicted grade of 42/42, and average UKCAT score of 690. Ashwati was accepted for the Medicine program to all her 4 UCAS choices, and UCLan in the UK, and RCSI and Trinity College Dublin in Ireland. She is currently studying Medicine at Kings College London. 

Ashwati's Testimonial:

I used to be an IB student at DAA, and two years ago I decided that I wanted to go to the field of Medicine. My parents and I were really eager to get into the process. We contacted Varun, and he suggested that I do a trial UKCAT, to see how it goes. The exam went okay, but I decided to take classes for the actual test in 2016. My final UKCAT went pretty well and I applied to 4 universities. To my surprise, I got interviews from all four universities, and I started preparing for Multi Mini Interviews with my mentors at the institute. I chose Kings College London as my final choice. The process is quite stressful, and whenever I had any stress or doubts, my mentors Varun, and Roshan were amazing in giving me all the guidance that I ever required. Varun and Roshan helped me with the entire application process including short listing of universities, working on my personal statement, and preparing for my interviews. Thank you!!
