Teacher Courses and Resources: Testimonials
“From your advice we made changes to how we support our aspiring medics – and as a consequence 17 out of the 18 students who applied for Medicine for 2018 entry have secured at least one interview and many have received offers back already. We also managed to get 3 out of 4 students into Cambridge, so we are absolutely delighted!”
Sir John Deane’s College
“We were very pleased with both the UKCAT and BMAT preparation days which you ran for us in-house. Their attention to detail and teaching methods were excellent and our pupils came away with greater confidence and knowledge of what was required.”
“We were hugely impressed with the UKCAT training provided by you for our medical applicants and the scores the students went on to achieve were undoubtedly improved as a result. The trainer provided a highly interactive experience and was clearly very much in touch with the detailed requirements of medical applications.”
Cheltenham Ladies’ College
“The [Teacher Conference] is definitely worth attending […] Great insight into which Medical Schools to apply to, what to expect at interview and what should go in the School Reference and Personal Statement.”
Head of Careers, Warwick School
