Honestly this is the best UCAT scheme available. The whole group were so supportive and replied instantly, from Max to Mohil. The UCAT tutors were great too, especially Cathy and Steph.
The Medic Mind team have been an integral reason for me securing 4/4 offers. I booked 30 hours, which was a good amount for UCAT and used their great videos alongside.
I had 6 hours of 1-1 with Medic Mind, which have been incredibly helpful. Everybody is friendly, knowledgeable and keen to help even if you are short for time.
These have specific strategies that really improved my scores. Not only that, but it is very affordable (especially compared to the majority of courses for the UCAT and BMAT which are heavily overpriced) and the price is for unlimited access to the courses.

This course provided great tips and tricks for the UCAT exam, I would recommend it for any med-school applicants. It helped me understand each aspect of the exam and went through in detail how to answer each question style.
The question sets were motivating and challenging, while still remaining similar to the real thing. In order to improve I would personally recommend spending more time on individual slides to give a better chance for mentees to make important notes.
The course I was given really boosted my confidence regarding the UCAT, as it informed me of numerous techniques on how to deductively choose answers for questions, guided me throughout the fundamentals of each section, and taught me how to prepare for this extremely important test.

When you are faced with a scenario, you have to identify the status and profession of the person involved. E.g. capabilities and responsibilities of a GP will be very different to that of a Medical Student.
The UCAT Book will give you an overview of the principles of situational judgement including patient safety and professionalism. You will learn which of these are most important in a clinical setting.
The most important thing you are taught as a medical student is to always be safe! It is drilled in and is the most important quality in medicine. The UCAT Book will share experiences on the hospital wards!
This applies in particular to situations revolving around medical students – Medical students are not authorised to make decisions surrounding medical care or give any treatment.
Confidentiality is important for many reasons – this includes patient trust in the profession. Patients are often anxious to come to doctors and so when they do inform them of information they expect that it will not be told to anyone else
Doctors and dentists should be responsible in healthcare setting and outside healthcare settings. This means that all students and doctors should act responsibly as they are representing a whole profession
Everyone makes mistakes and it’s important that if mistakes are made that we follow the right protocol to identify them. You should not directly influence patients’ decision – the modern model of healthcare is patient centred – we want patients to be at the heartbeat of their decisions.
No one is above anyone else – it’s why doctors and nurses wear the same type of scrubs. We go through common SJT scenarios around this and help you spot key patterns in their questions.
