iCanMed’s Online Learning Management System, Explained

Step-by-step video tutorials

The iCanMed learning management system has replicated the same test experience as the UCAT.

Functionality such as the timer, calculator and flagging are all available. Our questions are made to represent the latest UCAT exams in every way (i.e. length, difficulty, style, nuance, etc.)

For every one of the 2,500 UCAT questions in the course, students have the opportunity to review their working out process with exemplar solutions recommended by iCanMed.

A 5 to 15-minute video tutorial for every question shows the exact step-by-step question-solving process. We’ve done the hard work to make sure these techniques will never fail. All you need to do is to learn them well!

Ongoing teaching for Section 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5

The iCanMed learning management system teaches the UCAT in a curriculum-based sequence. The course is intuitively organised to help students learn knowledge and skill easily and comprehensively.

Ashton, iCanMed’s co-founder, equips students with section-specific insights, advice, know-how and recommendations to maximise learning efficiency.

Unlimited personal feedback

During any point of the course, students have unlimited opportunities to ask questions. Write the concern to our coaching team to respond with detailed personalised feedback within 24 hours, every day of the year. We are reachable via email, SMS, phone or Facebook as well. Ask anything from question-specific queries to study concerns or issues regarding motivation.

Our coaching team provides detailed feedback that is personalised to the issues you encounter and will continue to provide support until you fix the problem. We’ve received and answered over 50,000 messages over the last 18 months. Talk about unlimited support!

Helpful performance analytics

Click the incorrectly-answered question to be taken to the solutions review video to identify all mistakes in the solving process. The set up makes improving quick and straightforward.

Students can see which question took the longest to answer in our timed quizzes and mock exams to help isolate the exact reasons behind why they are not achieving top speed.

Frequently asked questions

UCAT Services

In 2019, almost 400 iCanMed students scored 3000 or more (i.e. 96th percentile or higher) on the UCAT. When we interviewed these students, most of them revealed that they spent around 250–300 hours preparing for the test. This may sound like a lot, until you realise that most medical or dental schools weight the UCAT as heavily as your ATAR. This means that the 2-hour UCAT exam is worth the same amount as all of your assessments, assignments, and hours spent studying for high-school or university subjects combined!

However, for students whose preparation only consists of doing mock exams and question banks without first learning the right techniques, it is very common to spend more than 500 hours preparing for the UCAT. Talk about inefficient prep! For more advice about how to prepare for the UCAT, check out our Resources page.

An extremely important feature of the UCAT Pro Course is unlimited opportunities to contact our UCAT coaches and receive direct, personalised feedback. All questions are answered within 24 hours, every day of the year. Students can do this a few ways: they can leave their question in the comments section of an online lesson; they can email, SMS or call our coaches; and they can add our coaches on Facebook. Communication via Facebook allows for live conversation and is preferred by the majority of students. You can contact us using the method that best suits you!

The best time to finish most of your UCAT prep is the end of January (for high school students) or the end of February (for university students) in the year you will be applying for medicine. Once Semester 1 starts, you will not have enough time to prepare for the UCAT alongside your school subjects, extra-curricular activities, interview preparation, leadership roles, voluntary work and/or paid work. Therefore, if you are sitting the UCAT in 2021, start preparation NOW so that you will be set to finish your UCAT prep by the end of the summer break. (If you are sitting the UCAT in 2022, you have two summer holidays to comfortably learn and master all of the UCAT question types before Year 12 begins.) Due to the importance of your ATAR, more and more students are opting to begin their preparation in Year 10 to avoid leaving it to the last minute and self-sabotaging their ATAR or UCAT result. If you are sitting the UCAT in 2023, relax and start to familiarise yourself with what preparation involves—there’s no need to start preparing this early!

The course includes 2,500 UCAT questions (including five fully-timed mock exams) covering all 14 of the question types found in Section 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5 of the 2019 UCAT exam. (After the 2020 UCAT testing period is over, these questions will be updated to reflect those in the 2020 exam). The questions are professionally written and reviewed by qualified assessment writers to represent the real exam in every way; their length, styles, nuances, variations, challenges and ways of being solved are all the same. For every question, there is also a full step-by-step video solution around 5 to 15 minutes long that demonstrates how to solve each question using accurate, transferrable and agile techniques. Imagine having 2,500 videos (with a total length of at least 12,500 minutes) of your math teacher solving every question in front of you!

When I first heard about the switch from UMAT to UCAT, I realised that most of the tried and tested methods of medical admissions preparation had to be re-examined. After reading many questionable claims and ‘success stories’ from suspicious pre-2019 UCAT students, I had all but decided on purchasing a UK prep program, but I mean who could turn down a free UCAT workshop? It was at this workshop where I was sold, not by Michael’s Greek physique, but by his patience and insight. Even well after the conclusion of the workshop, Michael continued to answer question after question from my overly-anxious self.

I’m not surprised that the iCanMed cohort did so well in the 2020 intake round. When you craft a program which is expertly structured and combine it with one-on-one support unmatched by any competitor, success is certain. The development of a curriculum which analyses each of the 14 UCAT question types was what convinced me to use iCanMed, as students are taught exactly how to approach each question, which is astronomically better than just doing practice problems. We were also free to reach out to the team if we ever got stuck in our preparation, receiving a comprehensive response from Ashton in less than 24 hours (how he answered everyone is still a mystery).

If you’re looking at preparation courses not just to ace UCAT, but to actually get into Medicine, I would highly recommend signing up with iCanMed. Going into Year 12, I genuinely didn’t think that in a year’s time the thing that I would be ‘stressed’ about would be which medical school offer to accept. But because of iCanMed’s UCAT and interview training programs, I am in this amazing position today. 

One of the main reasons iCanMed’s program stands out to me more than any other is because they accompany their comprehensive UCAT training with genuine 24/7 support.

Just like many of us who want to do med, facing the UCAT and the super long road to med in Year 12 was really daunting to me and I felt pretty scared and was certain med was out of my reach. I joined iCanMed after attending a free lecture they gave at school and I can certainly recommend their online modules and in-person workshops. A lot of people have no idea how to approach an aptitude test like UCAT, and iCanMed gave really helpful guidance that ultimately got me through and helped me achieve a competitive UCAT score.

As a highly neurotic high school med prospective student, searching for the right resources to prepare for the behemoth that was the newly introduced UCAT was a struggle. As much as I hate to admit my foolish diligence, all of my work for the UMAT was lost, leaving me in a limbo of delusional doomsaying (yeah, I started UMAT prep really early). My instincts jumped to exploring UKCAT resources, a route I followed for a while until I realised I was simply reinforcing poor time-inefficient ways to approach questions. It was only then that I realised the true value of iCanMed’s approach to test preparation.

I first enrolled in iCanMed’s UMAT course in June 2018 and, filled with a boost of motivation, immediately got started on their endless catalogue of comprehensive video tutorials and practice questions. Less than three months later, I’d finally made a dent in the coursework when the UMAT Consortium announced that the 2019 UMAT was entirely replaced by the UCAT—something that initially shocked and incited panic in many prospective medical applicants like me who would be the first in Australia to sit this exam.

I first came across iCanMed back in 2017, and I remember back then being completely lost on how to prepare for the medical school interview. But having known the founder, Michael Tsai for the past two years, without a shadow of a doubt he and iCanMed have been instrumental in helping me gain offers to Monash, UNSW, JCU and UWS. I’ve experienced interview courses from other companies, and iCanMed surpasses them by leaps and bounds. I consider myself someone who loves structure, and the fact that the interview course is centred around an intuitive curriculum makes it really easy to not only learn the material and have a sense of direction while doing so, but also find the gaps in my understanding and address them.

I recall that when I first started studying for the UCAT I felt so lost and unsure of how to go about my preparation. Like many of my classmates, I used the traditional approach—sitting multiple practice exams under timed conditions. After about a month of using this approach (with little progress) I started questioning it. After all, the UCAT was different from the UMAT. Didn’t that mean that preparation needed to be different as well?

Feeling increasingly hopeless about fulfilling my dream of getting into medicine, I researched different UCAT preparation companies. Some were sketchy, some expensive, and others used the traditional approach. Except for iCanMed. For the first time, a UCAT preparation company was telling me to solve less questions and develop accuracy instead! Feeling curious (and slightly attacked), I messaged Michael and explained to him my circumstances, to which he patiently explained to me how this learning process worked.

University of Western Australia (UWA) Medicine

Prior to joining the iCanMed course I had no idea where to start for UCAT preparation. Since it was the first year that the UCAT testing style was being introduced, there were so many prep courses and resources provided that it was difficult to figure out which ones were reliable. I found iCanMed through a teacher and first attended the free prep courses provided. After attending two, it became clear how thorough, well-planned and well-thought-out each lesson for each section of the test was. 

In addition to the clear course structure, the help and support provided by Michael and Ashton really helped me to become motivated and persistent in studying for the test. Whenever I was confused on a topic, they never hesitated to call or send a video to help me find a solution. In this way, the true guidance and care of the iCanMed team helped me to pass the UCAT and receive a place in medicine.
