All our UCAT tutors have scored in the top 10% Nationally (top percentile in the UCAT the year they took the test).
Before they teach for theMSAG, they go through a rigorous selection process, developing lesson plans and tutoring the leadership team. UCAT courses are recorded, and a rigorous feedback/ongoing training process is in place to guarantee the quality of the courses.
They make themselves avialable for their students before and after the courses, as much as needed.
The 2020 UCAT, is an important part of the selection process for many Medical schools and Dental schools. It tests Verbal Reasoning, Decision Making, Quantitative Reasoning, Abstract Reasoning and Situational Judgement. It requires different skills than what students are used to with their school exams and thus adapted preparation.
Our course was designed in partnership with Mr Philip Linnell, who scores consistently in the highest achievable band or percentile for the UCAT in the country. He tutored our CEO years ago and it is her personal experience with his tutoring style, and ability to design strategies that led to this partnership. He is a "career" tutor and has helped over 1000 students in almost 20 different subjects!
Students who have attended multiple courses have described our strategies as "eye-opening" or the methodology as "incomparable". Our tutors review the student's ability level with a course pre-assessment to tailor the course for them. The class size is limited to 8 for an engaging and personal experience. Our resources and ourselves are available from the moment one signs up, until they are admitted to the university of their choice.Book Now
We recommend that if you have decided early on to become and doctor or a dentist, then you should aim to sit the UCAT one year ahead of time, for practice. Students invariably do better the second time they write it so it is well worth writing it a year early. If you want to prepare for the exam a year ahead of time, let us know at the time of booking, and we will give you a voucher to come back the following year free of charge, if you want a refresher closer to the time.
Although we offer course dates all the way up to the exam date, for those of you preparing for this year, we recommend doing the course earlier if you can. This allows you to be familiar with all the strategies early and gives you as much time as possible to practice on the question bank using the strategies you learned.
And if you feel like you need a refresher closer to the exam date or if you don’t feel quite ready to sit the test, you can come back and attend a second time free of charge.
MAKING MEDICAL SCHOOL MORE ACCESSIBLE
A core value at theMSAG is to widen access to medicine, which we do by removing barriers. We remove physical barriers by hosting our UCAT courses in as many locations as possible across the UK (pre COVID-19), so students didn’t need to travel long distances to attend. Now we offer the same content in an online classroom so anyone can attend from anywhere in the world with internet access!
We also are proud to provide financial aid for every single one of our courses. If you are in need of financial aid for our UCAT courses before you book your test, please email finance@theMSAG.com and we will get back to you as soon as possible with access arrangements. All financial requests are decided on a case-by-case basis.
