My friend got into Medicine without doing a UCAT course!

Many students who undergo training for UCAT do not admit it for several reasons (for example, it increases their competition). Other reasons for not admitting include: wanting to appear smarter; they think that is what unis expect of them to say etc.

A student may have obtained 90th percentile for UCAT and got in to medicine without doing a course. If they had done our course, they would have obtained a higher score, say 99th percentile (and perhaps been awarded a scholarship to study medicine as well). Even those who may obtain 99th percentile without preparation will be at the top end of 99th percentile (i.e. obtain a higher overall score) with preparation, guaranteeing them a scholarship. Doing a MedEntry UCAT course will therefore significantly increase the probability of getting a medical school place and a scholarship, which is useful for many reasons (for example, good for the CV).
