“I would highly recommend anyone trying to achieve MRICS to reach out to LionHeart. The support is very well organised.”
Paula Gonzalez was hugely disappointed when she didn’t make the grade at her first APC attempt, following a particularly challenging time in her personal life.
Determined to try again as quickly as possible, she decided to explore the APC support on offer from LionHeart.
Paula explained: “I had a very difficult personal situation right before the first APC panel. I remember I felt hugely disappointed to have failed but when I read the referral report, I realised I’d made some huge mistakes.
“LionHeart was fantastic from the start. I was put in contact with support officer Tracy Evans, who organised weekly video calls and support. It meant I managed to review all my weak spots, develop my presentation to another level and just feel more confident. Overall, I felt that I was prepared and Tracy was kind and patient at all times.”
The extra preparation and support gave Paula the confidence boost she needed to succeed at her second APC panel.
She added: “I would highly recommend anyone trying to achieve MRICS to reach out to LionHeart. It is a great initiative, and the support is very well organised.”
