Wondering how The Medic Portal compares to MedEntry for UCAT prep? Here’s a summary of the key differences.

Medic Portal vs MedEntry

The Medic Portal and MedEntry both provide resources to help students with the UCAT and Med School interviews, which are key stages of the Medicine application process.

What Does The Medic Portal Offer For UCAT?

At TMP, we recommend that students use a three-stage process to prepare for the UCAT.

  1. Learn theory and strategies.
  2. Apply the theory with practice.
  3. Consolidate to time with mocks.

During UCAT season, we run UCAT courses in which experts teach theory and strategies to achieve a high score in the test. It’s a one-day course, running 10am-5pm, and can be attended either in-person or live online.

If you prefer self-learning, or if you attend a live course and then want to go over the theory again, we also have an online UCAT course which you can complete in your own time.

After learning the theory, it’s important to work your way through lots of practice questions – and we have a UCAT Question Bank that you can use for this. There’s a free practice test and a selection of free practice questions which you can try before subscribing to the Question Bank.

Once you have practised answering lots of questions and are happy with the level of accuracy you are achieving, you should move on to trying full mocks in timed conditions. Our Question Bank comes with a range of mocks to complete in the run-up to test day.

If you feel that you need more personalised support to boost your UCAT prep, TMP also offers UCAT tutoring. You can use tutoring sessions to focus on any areas you’re struggling with and hone in on your weaknesses. There are UCAT packages available which allow you to combine tutoring with courses and more.

TMP also has a number of free resources to help with UCAT revision, including our comprehensive UCAT guide, blogs with insights from high-scoring students and free UCAT webinars. You can also sign up to receive weekly UCAT prep plan emails in the eight weeks leading up to your test.

At TMP, we are trusted to teach the UCAT in top schools around the world and have also received a platinum Feefo award for excellent reviews.

What Does MedEntry Offer For UCAT?

MedEntry runs a UCAT workshop where students can learn UCAT strategy. It’s a two-day course, running 7.45am-3.30pm each day, and it is live online only.

They also have an Online Platform with practice questions, mocks and video guides. There is a free trial available for the Online Platform, as well as a free mock.

MedEntry offers one-to-one UCAT tutoring as part of their top package, or as an optional add-on when you purchase one of their other packages.

Medic Portal And MedEntry Compared

The Medic Portal and MedEntry offer a similar range of products for UCAT preparation, so it’s worth knowing the differences before you decide what is the right choice for you.

In terms of live UCAT courses, TMP’s UCAT course is a one-day course, and it runs on most Saturdays throughout UCAT season. This means you have a wide range of dates to choose from.

MedEntry’s UCAT workshop is a two-day course, and it typically runs one weekend per month during UCAT season, i.e. one weekend in June, one in July, etc. The MedEntry course also starts earlier in the morning – 7.45am vs TMP’s 10am start.

Both courses run live online, but with TMP’s UCAT course, there is also the option to attend in-person. So if you feel that you would benefit from in-person teaching, this type of course might be the best option for you. TMP’s UCAT course also comes with a post-course online masterclass (already included in the price) which students can attend later to gauge their progress and ask more questions.

For UCAT tutoring with TMP, you can book between 1 hour and 25 hours, with the option to add more hours later if you need to. In contrast, MedEntry’s UCAT tutoring is only available as part of a package, or as a package add-on, and the set amount is 10 hours with the option to add more later.
