Eva’s performance in Part II of the BM is superb, not least when one considers that the 150 students who sat the exam were selected from a pool of 1,900 highly eligible applicants. To achieve proxime accessit in such a competitive environment, therefore, is a result of which Eva should be very proud.

Of her achievement, Eva commented, ‘My fellow medics and I have had such incredible teaching and support from all our tutors over the past 6 years! It’s been a privilege and a joy to be part of the Somerville community, and I hope we’ll come back to college again and again in the years to come.

‘I also can’t wait to celebrate with my parents, little sister, and my boyfriend when I see them next, since it’s their love which keeps me going!’
