Oxford Medical School Gazette Essay Competition 2015 – Open to students in Pre-IB, IB1 and IB2 (Years 11, 12 & 13). Deadline for submission Friday 8 January 2016

OMSG-Schools-Essay-PrizeThe Essay Competition is open to students in IB1, IB2 and Pre IB (years 11, 12, and 13). Gap year students are not eligible to apply.
You will need to submit an essay of up to 1000 words on the title:
“A fast-changing world means modern medicine must adapt to new challenges. What is the biggest challenge facing medicine over the next 50 years?“
The winner of the competition will receive £100 of Amazon vouchers and their essay will be published in the Gazette.
 The deadline for entries is Friday 8th January 2016.
Helpful hints for writing your essay:
– Make sure to have a clear plan in mind before you start to write the essay. Decide on the message you want to convey in your essay before you write it, and make sure that you develop your argument throughout the essay.
– Try to include a range of examples in your essay to back up your argument.
– Keep the essay interesting and engaging. We are looking for creative pieces of writing that interpret the title in an innovative way.
– Try to use references to support your arguments. These can be articles from scientific journals but don’t need to be – new articles, webpages, and books can also be good references!
