Jodie Ralph
Successful MedEntry Student, and parent

 

I am delighted to offer positive feedback to Medentry.

When I finally got onto the UAC site at about 9:30pm last night I was amazed to see that I had received my first preference - Medicine at Newcastle! I am going to be a doctor! The MedEntry course was my primary preparation for both the UMAT and the interviews, and it definitely was worth it. Being a pregnant at home mum with 2 kids (the third arrived two weeks after the UMAT) I was not able to attend the two day sessions, so I bought the distance learning option. It worked perfectly for someone in my situation.

Thank you Medentry. I have recommended you on the [name deleted] forum, so hope other people who take the effort to prepare, do well.

I would like to thank the whole team at Medentry for your advice and assistance that has led to my recent success. I was fortunate enough to get four offers for medicine: James Cook University, University of New South Wales, University of Melbourne and a late round offer at University of Sydney!!!

I must say, your UMAT prep course was superb!!! The guides were very comprehensive, easy to understand and easy to apply!!! I especially liked your interview guide as it was very up-to-date and very helpful when it came to the real thing!!! Let me also praise your UMAT practice exams. They were quite challenging and closely resembled the real test!!!

OVERALL, I WAS ASTOUNDED BY THE QUALITY OF YOUR MATERIAL AND WOULD RECOMMEND IT TO ALL THOSE LOOKING FOR A CAREER IN MEDICINE!!!

I really can't thank you enough!!!

From a very happy customer

Thanks almost entirely to your training I now have a place in medicine at the University of Queensland (my first preference being a Queenslander). Before I went to your workshop I thought the UMAT was a test where nobody could gain an advantage through training. How wrong I was!

Your program was excellent because it exposed me to the exact types of questions that I would face in all sections in the UMAT and gave valuable strategies to tackle the different questions. The LMS is an outstanding innovation which enabled me to properly prepare for the big day by doing practice exams whilst placing myself under time pressure. My percentiles in the UMAT were:

Section 1 - 92% Section 2 - 83% Section 3 - 94%

I give you entire credit for my Section 3 mark as this was by far my weakest area initially. These results got me interviews at Newcastle and Monash. Thanks to your interview guide I was able to impress the interviewers by telling them exactly what they wanted to hear and consequently I also received a first round offer from Monash University. I want to extend my deepest thanks for your help in getting me into the most competitive field of study in Australian Universities.

Keep up the good work!

Pallavi Prathivadi
Successful MedEntry Student

Yesterday morning, I received a CSP offer to study medicine at Monash University, my first preference.

I have wanted to become a doctor since I was 10 years old, and MedEntry has helped make my dreams come true!

Your workshop and online materials prepared me wonderfully for the UMAT. I took extensive notes from Dr Edward's lessons at the workshop, and read them every night for a few months.

I completed every practice exam and drill I found on the LMS, and reviewed the solutions frequently.

By December, I received interviews from University of New South Wales, University of Western Sydney, University of Adelaide, Monash University and University of Newcastle. I was only required to attend three of these.

The practice Monash interview conducted was absolutely superb, and I made sure to follow all suggestions and tips during my own interview at Monash.

I cannot describe the joy and excitement I was feeling yesterday morning, and I owe so much of it to MedEntry.

I will recommend MedEntry to everyone who wants to study medicine; all the emails I sent to MedEntry were answered within three days, I got lovely calls before and after my interviews, and most importantly, they definitely know what they're doing.

Thank you so much for everything!

Benjamin Ho
Successful MedEntry Student

Thank you MedEntry for your great UMAT program. I was one of many people who sat the UMAT believing that you could not prepare or study for it, and inevitably I received less than satisfactory results. Being recommended the program from friends, I decided to do the MedEntry course before sitting the UMAT again the following year and the results were telling.

My scores for every section went up significantly because MedEntry was able to provide me with concise and detailed techniques in approaching all problems presented. The analytical skills taught are not only useful for UMAT, but have helped me in most exam situations. The section III guide was outstanding, and my weakness in my previous UMAT had become my strength.

Thank you for all your help MedEntry, I would strongly recommend this program to anyone preparing for the UMAT.

Siobhan Muthiah
Successful MedEntry Student

I just received my UMAT results today, and my percentile for Section 1 was 86, Section 2 was 66, and Section 3 was 98. I have to say that I have made a dramatic improvement from my 2004 UMAT results, as my percentiles for Section 1, 2 and 3 were 30, 49 and 58 respectively.

Despite having done a UMAT prep course in 2004, I was still unable to develop sufficient time management skills, and consequently my marks suffered. I would like to thank you for the excellent materials that you provided me this year and the informative 2 day workshop which gave me the confidence and preparation I needed to tackle the UMAT. I was able to finish Section 1, solely due to the time constraints I placed on myself whilst doing your practice exams.

The questions were actually very similar to the ones on the UMAT, and one of the shapes questions were identical to the one provided in your booklet. This really helped me with the timing of section 3 and gave me more of a chance to go back over questions I wasn't sure of. I would gladly recommend your course to anyone, as it was thanks to you that I was able to improve my scores.

Justin Huang
Successful MedEntry Student

I have received even more good news and would like to share it with you. I was offered a place in the Bachelor of Dental Surgery from the University of Adelaide! In the first round I was offered a place in Pharmacy at Monash University which was my second choice. I was very happy with this, however I simply cannot describe the feeling I got when I was offered my first choice, Dentistry. It is clear that my UMAT score, and the interview advice which Dr  Edward  provided, pulled me through and above other applicants who had a higher TER than myself.

My ENTER score (VIC) was 94.70
My UMAT percentile was 90

Two other students aiming for dentistry at the University of Adelaide who achieved ENTER scores in the high 98s were in fact ranked bellow me. As they had lower UMAT scores than mine, this clearly shows how important the UMAT is, and I shall be emphasising this to my school's careers counsellor. Many of my fellow school friends who also attended the MedEntry process achieved high UMAT scores and are doing Medicine or Dentistry. In fact, our school's top 5 UMAT scorers all attended MedEntry's program.

So once again, thank you for your help and advice.

Katie Bishop
Successful MedEntry Student

The products supplied by your company have been a huge help in preparing me for the UMAT and have also given me more confidence for future interviews. Without this package I feel that I would have never achieved the score I did as I would have had no idea as to the format of the entire process. The advice supplied throughout the duration of my preparation and the follow - up that has been received has been outstanding and I have found it both encouraging and comforting.

As I have only been in Australia for a year after moving from the UK, I had little to no idea how things worked regarding entry into university and the process that had to be undertaken in order to complete the necessary steps in achieving my goals. My UMAT score, thanks to this package, has helped me to get where I want to be. My overall percentile was 257. This was made up of

Section one: 90%, Section two: 97% and Section three: 70%. I really enjoyed my time preparing for this course mainly because of the easy to follow and understandable guides.

Thank you again for all your help.

Elise Marie de Romas
Successful MedEntry Student

I would have to say the practice test helped me a lot. It helped prepare one for the actual tests, as the questions were extremely similar. It was as if I'd seen them before. It helped me a lot with the shapes, as I had been extremely bad with these on the practice UMAT test.

The techniques really helped me answer the questions. With the interview, MedEntry was extremely helpful as well, as the questions were ones I had already endeavoured to answer in my practice interview. The exact same questions were asked. The practice interview truly prepared me, and dispelled nervousness.

Felicity
Successful MedEntry Student

My UMAT percentiles were 99, 98, 98 for the three booklets and I have to say that I give you almost entire credit for those scores! Following your workshop I completed about 8 of your practice papers and they were an immense help. I will most certainly be recommending you to anyone who is going to sit the UMAT and have already done so. Also I found the explanations in the answers very helpful. I found your papers very helpful and appropriate to the standard of the UMAT, so thank you very much for your help.

Apart from Melbourne, I was also offered a place to study medicine at Queensland and Newcastle.

Thank you!

I am very elated and can't wait for the year to begin! I got offers for UNSW, Adelaide and Melbourne [medicine].

I found your UMAT course excellent, particularly in regards to Section 1. The 10 practice exams were a great help.

Your excellent products and course definitely helped me get my results (100, 98, 79), which in turn got me interviews and took a lot of the stress off end-of-year exams.

Thank you so much for your great course, materials and support; your course was great, and I think it really lifted my score and helped ease my nerves and prepare me for the UMAT.

Nina Parthasarathy
Successful MedEntry Student

I found the Med-Entry material very useful in my preparation for the UMAT. A lot of the stuff was quite similar to the questions that actually appeared on the UMAT and having practiced on the various types of questions provided by the Med-Entry team in the form of several practice exams made the actual UMAT a less daunting and more successful experience.

The Med-Entry team were very professional and well-presented during the workshop but also very approachable. I felt completely comfortable asking them about any questions I had in the lead-up to the UMAT, as they were always friendly and helpful. I think the experience of the Med-Entry team and the material provided maximised my performance in the UMAT and was a significant factor in me receiving places in medical schools all around Australia!

Jonathan Emerson
Successful MedEntry Student

I just want to say a very big thankyou for all of your help over the past year. UMAT was my second attempt at the exam, however my first attempt with preparation from MedEntry - and without all the prep from the course, I definitely wouldn't have been as confident during the exam.

I ended up getting scores/percentiles of:
S1- 57/84
S2- 53/71
S3- 81/100

Thus I obtained interviews for Medicine at the University of Western Sydney and the University of Newcastle (a feat I never thought I could achieve) - and I'm very grateful for the interview preparation that you also provided. I was offered a CSP place for Medicine at UWS - and I thankyou so very much for all of the excellent drills and exams you provided online, the weekend preparation course, and all of the interview preparation material.

Firstly I'd like to give a special thank you to the whole MedEntry team, without the resources and support of the MedEntry forums I don’t think I would be where I am now. The products and services of MedEntry helped me immensely with UMAT prep and especially interview prep.

With all your help I've been able to secure a place within Monash MBBS. Once again a hearty thank you goes to you, Dr Edward  for giving us excellent preparation during the two day lecture and again the MedEntry team for providing such extensive resources.

These are my 2005 UMAT results that I achieved after training with you (S1 95 (64); S2 94 (63); S3 100 (88)). Thanks to your wonderful course, they are much better than I hoped for. As a New Zealand student I had very little knowledge about the UMAT until I took your training so full credit to you.

Devorah Rosenblum
Successful MedEntry Student

Thanks for all your preparatory help. I found your practice exams very helpful, as well as your service - I could email you to ask any questions, and always got a response. The interview guide was also great as it showed me the type of questions asked in the interview, so that I had time to properly think of the answers. Nothing was asked that wasn't in your guide. I was accepted to Monash medicine (my first preference).

My percentiles were 98 90 93. Thanks for all your UMAT and interview help!

Thanks for the great course and info. The UMAT practice exams were particularly useful; they made a huge difference to my performance. My results were as follows; section one 99, section two 95 and section three 89. The interview booklet was also helpful, mostly for the bits that gave you a hint at the questions they might ask at each place. I received places at all the universities I applied for! UNSW, Monash, Tasmania and Adelaide.

Thanks so much for the great course!!!

Perveen Aslam
Successful MedEntry Student

The practice papers and UMAT guides were really helpful particularly with section 3 and section 1 of the UMAT. It also helped to do your practice papers in advance because it better helped me manage my time effectively especially in section 1. The interview guide was good because most of the questions asked at the interview were incredibly similar to the sample questions in the guide so the questions didn't throw me off as much. Overall it was all very helpful, I would recommend the course to others.

Thanks for the many emails you’ve sent. I've always found them really friendly and it's been nice to receive them after completing the different stages of the long process in trying to get into med.

I think the 10 practice exams were just fantastic - exam layout was a great way to prepare, I feel the questions were of good difficulty (the harder the better) and overall I feel they helped me improve my performance.

With regard to your interview prep guide, it was fantastic, very comprehensive.

Thanks again!

Elif Durur
Successful MedEntry Student

I found that the UMAT preparation was very beneficial - but mainly for boosting one’s self confidence. I enjoyed going to the actual workshop, as it was fascinating to see how other people thought and came about deciding on their own answers. I personally feel that I gained the most out of your Prep Course in Section 3. I was surprised to find, that even though I had some difficulty with the type two shapes questions that in the actual exam they seemed to just jump out at me. A pleasant surprise! I think that the interview guide you provided will help people not just for interviews involving medicine but interviews in general. Is great the way you re-examine your own thought process.

Overall I found that the course was very beneficial, and I would have no hesitation in suggesting it to others. The most useful aspects I found were the section three practice questions, and the ability to do the test in a timed environment. Being able to attend the workshop highlighted different approaches to answering questions, and the interview guide is defiantly a tool everyone should have.

Katherine Downe
Successful MedEntry Student

I’ve been really happy with all the services that MedEntry have provided. I was particularly impressed with the way the MedEntry team have been happy to answer any questions so punctually in such a friendly manner. The UMAT is a very hard examination and the LMS program prepares you very well. The shape drills enable you to improve in Section 3 immensely and I found having access to the answers for the exams you have previously attempted really helpful because you can look back at the questions you found difficult. The MedEntry workshop had a friendly atmosphere and was very informative. The practise examination gives you a good indication of what it will be like sitting the UMAT. I would highly recommend MedEntry as they helped me obtain the UMAT results I’m really happy with.

Thank you MedEntry and all the best for everyone sitting the UMAT in the future.

Successful MedEntry Student

I am happy to tell you that I have been offered to study medicine at Auckland University and University of Tasmania. I am very thankful to MedEntry in all their support. Everything from UMAT preparation to Interview feedback, I have found MedEntry to be amazingly useful in getting me through. 

Regarding the interview feedback session, my interviewer was really helpful in identifying my weak points. She told me exactly what I was doing wrong, how I could fix it and gave me invaluable tips I could use in my interview. She also told me of my strong points and how I could improve them even further which I also found very useful. I found going through each question and my answer to it was really helpful, especially in dealing with the details of my answers. What was covered in the feedback session I believe was invaluable. I was told many things I hadn't even considered and I owe much of my Auckland interview success to MedEntry. I am greatly thankful for her help and commend MedEntry on their effort at helping students.

I just wanted to say thanks for creating such a great course as I highly benefited from it. I got an offer for Medicine at Monash with a 271% UMAT, which was a score of 183, an ENTER of 96.55, and apparently a great interview! Yet again thankyou for everything, I'll definitely recommend MedEntry to everyone considering sitting for the UMAT.

Kate Rotchester
Successful MedEntry Student

I received an offer for my first preference of Physiotherapy at Monash University.

I finished year 12 in 2002 with an enter or 82.05. I wanted to study Physiotherapy, but didn’t have the score and thought I never would, so I tried architecture which I hated. 

The following year I decided that one day I would be a Physio so started to take the steps to get there. I did one year of exercise science at VU, and applied for physio everywhere and missed out. 

I was going to defer, but decided to have one last shot. I did 2nd year OT, with a D average and MedEntry platinum package, which I studied and studied and studied, and had the weekend school with MedEntry which was great.

I got a UMAT that was enough for an interview which I used MedEntry to fully prepare. I aced the interview and I offered them a list of my references at the end and one said to me 'We cannot accept any documents but don’t worry, your presence here has been more than enough.'

I was quietly confident I would get a place, and I did, CSP! I know its not med, but it was my dream and I would have NEVER been able to do it without MedEntry. With practice I went from getting 20% on shapes to getting 80% in my percentile which was a big achievement. Thanks MedEntry!!!

Emma Rogan
Successful MedEntry Student

I am very happy that the year of hard work with the UMAT and VCE has all paid off and I received an offer to study Dental Science at Melbourne Uni. 

I'd like to say a big thank you to you. I know that I was able to maximize my UMAT score thanks to the training sessions and online practice exams. I gained a lot of knowledge to help me with the test, and many of the strategies you taught actually helped me in my other studies and, I believe, will come in handy for the rest of my life. I went to the training knowing very little about the UMAT and naively thinking I would be fine without it, but came out with a lot more knowledge and being truly grateful I attended.

I was very pleased with my UMAT results. I received :- Section 1: 77(%99) Section 2: 63(%96) Section 3: 62(%93), with an overall percentile of 99. 

My UMAT score earned me many interviews all over the country. I was offered Dental interviews at Griffith University, University of Adelaide and University of Western Australia. I attended the Griffith and Adelaide interviews. I was also offered Medicine interviews at UNSW, University of Western Sydney, University of Newcastle, Monash University, University of Adelaide and University of Western Australia. I attended the Monash and UNSW interviews. 

The start of this year has been very exciting as I received offers to study Medicine at UNSW and The University of Tasmania. I also received offers to study dentistry at Griffith and Melbourne (all CSP). 

As Dental Science at Melbourne Uni was my first preference I was absolutely ecstatic. I'm sure I was accepted in the UMAT stream, so I once again thank you for the brilliant preparation you provided.

I received two first round offers for the course at the universities which I selected as my first choice, that is, medicine at both UTAS and Monash through VTAC.  I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your assistance throughout the year. I feel that the assistance provided by the MedEntry team gave me a definite edge over my peers who didn't complete such a course.  Moreover, the interview preparation was invaluable as I enjoyed the interview and wasn't 'snookered' by the panel's questions.

Firstly I’m really excited to tell you THAT I GOT INTO MED AT MONASH!!! First round CSP offer!!! I am THRILLED!!! But I’ve got to tell you...with an ENTER score of 97.75 I was really doubting I would get into med. But thanks to other things like interview and UMAT that they take into consideration...I seemed to have made it.

I am not just saying it...but I really do owe a HELL OF A LOT to you guys at MedEntry...actually I didn’t even know what the UMAT was at the start of 2007...but after attending the workshop and learning all about it online...I was so prepared for the test! I mean...seriously thank you sooo much!! Also all your help for the interview also made me sooo much more prepared and ready to face whatever they threw at me. I learned to be myself and show my positives...I am so thankful for you guys's help. Thanks again!

I hope you continue to help make others' dreams come true...like you did mine! With much gratitude, Nandini.

I was very excited to receive this offer as I have always wanted to go to UQ and it is great that I can stay in Queensland with my family.

I also wanted to thank you so much for your wonderful preparation course for the UMAT. All the online drills, practice exams and hints were so helpful and the two day workshop was fantastic.

Thankyou MedEntry... I was offered an unbonded MBBS place at UQ, Monash and UNSW in the first round. I am very pleased to say I have accepted UNSW.

The forums have also been a great place to chat with like-minded individuals on the same path. Thankyou again, I am over the moon with what I managed to accomplish, and your help played a major role in that.

MedEntry was an awesome course which offered thorough and relevant practice to us all.

However, through the entire experience, and in receiving my actual UMAT results, I realised it wasn't merely about trying i.e. spending mindless hours on UMAT practice. All along, achieving goals is truly about transforming my thinking, coupled with 100% effort. If we are not determined to change our hearts and minds on a continual basis, we will be stuck in the same place. Much like a car that runs on fuel alone, without renovating itself along the journey. We may reach the same end-point in life, but we must always be thinking about how we can think more quickly and efficiently, love with greater freedom and humility, and treasure the tangible and intangible relationships we have within us and with others in life.

Anyways, I thought I should let you know: I received an offer into Auckland University Medical school, which is fantastic! My childhood dream has come true!

Thank you for all your advice and the wisdom you imbued in us so that we could prepare well for UMAT! It is deeply appreciated.

I attended your course in Dunedin and found it fantastic. Just letting you know I've been accepted into Auckland Medical School so am really happy. Would totally recommend your course because I know without it I would not have done half so well in the UMAT test or been as prepared for my interview.

Thank you so so much for running your course! I got accepted into my first choice of medicine at Monash university, something I never thought I was smart enough to do and certainly wouldn’t have without my great UMAT score. Thank you! I have never been this happy.

Through first round offers in SATAC, I received my top preference of B. Medicine & B. Surgery at The University of Adelaide. I'd just like to thank Edward and the MedEntry team. I found all the resources on the website extremely helpful and worthwhile.

I would just like to thank the MedEntry staff for helping me achieve my goals. I thought the UMAT/interview course was great - both the content and support. My UMAT percentile score increased from 179 to 232, and as a result I was offered interviews for Bond Medicine and Otago Dentistry and both were successful.

Thank you!

Successful MedEntry Student

Hanging in there and being hopeful, I received an offer from The university of Adelaide which I have accepted and deferred, taking a year off in order to participate in a leadership program overseas.

I have to say that MedEntry was a huge help and I appreciated all the support from the MedEntry team. I would recommend it to any student serious about setting their sights on medicine and other UMAT-requiring courses. I didn't do the UMAT training during my first attempt in year 12, so I would advise to all students to get serious about the UMAT without trying to get lucky as I did when I went for the UMAT the first time.

Thanks again for all your help and keep up the good work you do, helping students work towards building a better future.
