Alexandra Grove, Alumna and Doctor

Medical Doctor

Alumna Dr Alexandra Grove tells us about her time at ICS and beyond.

I attended ICS from Grade 6 to Grade 12, and graduated in 2006. I have always been interested in Medicine and wanted to apply to Medical School in London, so I took Chemistry, Biology and Geography at Higher Level in the IB, with Maths, English and Spanish at Standard Level. I obtained 39 points for the Diploma which meant I was offered a place to study Medicine at King’s College London.

When applying to Medical School, universities often look for candidates with not only good results, but who also demonstrate an interest in other people and beyond the academic. ICS encouraged us to take part in Community Service and extracurricular activities, which was an advantage when I applied to interview.

My degree was very demanding but most of the basic sciences in the first two years had been covered to some extent at ICS. The rigorous syllabus of IB Higher Level subjects helped to prepare me for the hard work at Medical School. 

I qualified as a doctor from King’s College London in 2011 and I am currently working as a General Practitioner in the UK.
