MedEntry is the most popular trainer for UCAT, has the highest success rate among the UCAT course providers. “If the skills that UCAT tests cannot be developed, then why do universities train in these things? Are they wasting their time?”

MedEntry chief Dr Edward asked. “It is not in our interests to undermine universities. We are developing the skills the universities are looking for, just like they train their students to do well in employment”.

Concordia College Year 12 student Tara Shem (who did the MedEntry course) said taking a training course had improved her preparation for the UCAT exam. “You do feel the pressure to do a UCAT course” Tara said. “You know other people are doing them and you want to be up there”.
