Creating a culture of excellence, the iCanMed way

Many ingredients go into a truly successful coaching program. One critical ingredient is the ability to empathise with the struggles faced by students. This empathy is what enables iCanMed to give students the best advice at the right time and encourage them to keep striving for success. Providing top-notch education is about more than just achieving top marks; it’s about helping learners to realise their potential, grow into accountable individuals and work fearlessly for their dreams.

From the beginning of year 10 I heard how important it was to study for the UMAT. I went with another preparation company at that time and I came away from the experience not improving that much. By the end of year 11 the UCAT was announced as the new med entrance exam. At the time, there were no Australian companies who knew any more about the UCAT than I did, which was just ridiculous that they were already charging money for something that was brand new. After extensive research, iCanMed was the final UCAT prep company that I ended at and I stand by my decision that if I were in the same position again, I would still go with iCanMed.

I avidly took advantage of the opportunity to ask questions to Ashton and Michael 24/7 and their advice actually had logical reasoning behind it that made sense. The techniques provided left no room for error and meant that every correct answer was never off a whim but with sound reasoning. With iCanMed, I could see the reason why each answer was it was and bring that knowledge with me to answer similar questions. I attribute a lot of my success in my medicine application journey to the team at iCanMed and am very pleased and grateful that I chose them amongst the rest who are not only more expensive but less supportive.

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.

Personally, while iCanMed’s teaching and resources were second to none, I found what makes them truly special are their founders, Michael and Ashton. My interaction with both began with their 24-hour support policy, where I relentlessly asked questions at ungodly hours, and whether it was the syllogism that made no sense or the dreaded “Why Medicine?” they were always ready with explanations and advice. However, Michael and Ashton quickly developed into personal mentors who would take hours out of their day to call, discuss and address personal dilemmas and concerns to help me make pivotal vocational decisions. I’d like to thank both Michael and Ashton for their absolute commitment and concern to their students, which is rare to come by and a welcome relief in the cash-grabbing world of tuition.

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). 

As a stressed-out high school student, I found solace in the fact that I was being coached by experts, and that my hard work was being put into an effective program.

For me, the most valuable aspect of iCanMed’s suite of programs was the interview course. I developed an understanding of what is needed to be a doctor, as iCanMed taught me what universities want from their medical students, and why the traits they search for are so important. I also took part in the interview masterclasses, where I put my understanding into practice and learnt how to articulate my motivations and beliefs whilst conveying to medical schools that I was the student they needed. Michael was largely responsible for any interview questions we had and seemed to be an endless source of knowledge regarding interviews and medicine acceptance. He actually told me about the medical program I am doing this year, so I’m not exaggerating when I say I wouldn’t have gotten into medicine without him. Michael also became my mentor over my Year 12 experience, and helped me fully understand why I wanted to be a physician. So not only does iCanMed teach you how to get into medicine and dentistry, they can show you why you should, which is an invaluable lesson for us 2020 medical students and any Year 12 eyeing up a career as a doctor or dentist.

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. 

And that might not seem like a big deal now, but trust me when you’re in the thick of things and your UCAT is in a month and you’ve got all these exams coming up and X,Y,Z to do, the first person I would text is Michael. The advice and knowledge he has about how to get into medicine is unparalleled—the reason I received my offers was because I knew exactly HOW to get in, so I was able to work smarter not harder. He has always been just a Facebook Messenger message away and for that I am so incredibly grateful—I really don’t think I would have been able to do it without him. 

I haven’t gone too much into detail about how good the UCAT program is because I think that’s quite evident in the ridiculous number of iCanMed students that end up receiving offers for medicine and dentistry. The program really emphasises learning how to do a few questions well, as opposed to thousands of questions quickly but with low accuracy. Through learning and breaking down the rationale of every stage in answering a question, I was able to score in the 91 percentile, received 3 interview offers and 2 offers to study medicine. But, what I really appreciated is that every time I had a question or wanted to do a practice interview question with me he always—and I really mean always—finds time for his students. If you make the time to ask for his personal help, he will give it to you no questions asked and is very gracious with his time. He’ll make your JCU written application stand out or he’ll call you for 30 minutes if you want to calm down before an interview. When I got my medical school offers, he was one of the first people I texted. I’m super happy I chose iCanMed for my journey into med, and I know you will be too.

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. 

From attending the dissection workshops and binge-watching their online videos and practising UCAT, I became really familiar with the question types and the skills I needed to hone in on to ace the exam.

After finishing year 12, my next concern was the interview process, as once again, I thought I was going in blind. My friends and I signed up for the 2-day interview masterclass led by Michael, and I’m so thankful I did. He led a small class of us through all the different question types in an interview that I’d had no idea even existed, and how to apply a step-by-step burger model to tackle each one and earn a high-scoring response. We put what we learnt into practice while Michael came around and gave personalised feedback and points for improvement to each person. Michael is always willing to help out and generous with his guidance, and even after the masterclass ended, I texted him with a lot of questions and he responded really quickly sending detailed example responses and even calling to give advice. I was invited to attend some interstate interviews, and I panicked because I wasn’t sure how they were going to be structured and I didn’t know anyone who had done them, so after messaging, Michael gave me a reassuring phone call and helped me to analyse the type of interview and the tricks and nuances used that I should look out for. After a hella intense 2019, I’m incredibly grateful to the team at iCanMed for guiding me through to the career that I’ve always wanted, and I believe that I would not have gained a place at Monash Med without them.

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. 

Their no-nonsense approach to answering any test question stripped down my previous misconceptions of test prep, so much so that I was able to adapt similar principles into school to get a final ATAR of 99.95 and I don’t even consider myself to be that intelligent. iCanMed’s logical approach to ‘what it takes to answer a question’ is proper mindful and effective study, the kind of study that buys you time to do other things you need to do, like prepare for ATAR and interviews. Their deep understanding of education exposed the emotional decision-making I was a culprit of; things like doing practice exams to feel competent, rather than actually being competent.

The most important thing to me was the fact that iCanMed wasn’t just a faceless organisation where you have no idea how to ask questions or who you can talk to. I admit that I was more reserved when it came to asking questions but the fact that Michael and Ashton are very accessible on social media sealed the deal. Their dedication makes this service dance on the lines of personalised mentorship, a testimony to the fact that they actually want to help students, not get money out of them.

In addition, the interview preparation course vastly exceeded my expectations. It gives you the template for a well-crafted journey of self-introspection, a model that allowed me to be confident rather than faking it. The UCAT Pro Course that I bought had stupid value for money, guiding me through the intricacies of interview preparation, an online study course which I intend on using in university and an additional English course which literally boosted my mark until I won multiple awards that I wouldn’t have won otherwise.

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.

On the very day the news was announced, September 24th 2018, Michael sent an email and a Facebook post announcing the news as well as informing us all that the iCanMed team had been working on a UCAT course for several years and were completely prepared with another, equally thorough course designed specifically for the UCAT. He ended the email with “don’t worry because we got you covered.” The way Michael and the iCanMed team handled the next few weeks with complete transparency and immediate around-the-clock replies to any messages and queries in order to absolutely ensure everyone had the most accurate and relevant information was remarkable.

This level of support continued for the following two years and is what I appreciated the most about iCanMed. I never felt lost or confused because of the high level of transparency Michael and Ashton provided to everyone. Knowing that, whether it was a public holiday or 2am in the morning, I could message Michael with a question and receive an almost immediate reply showed me I was valued as a student. From the very first masterclass, where Ashton analysed and broke down every single question type into its core components, to the UCAT practice drills, from lodging the very first application to the very final interview invitation, Michael and Ashton constantly had all the information and were proactive in sharing any new detail or squashing any widespread rumour from the internet.

iCanMed’s approach to all the medical application requirements is methodical and objective in nature, making it significantly easier to implement. Every single UCAT and interview question type are broken down into step-by-step processes for us to approach in a specific manner repeatedly until our cognitive thinking style aligns perfectly with that required to, essentially, get into medicine.

By the end of the two year UCAT/Interview course, I had scored in the 97th percentile on the UCAT, received seven interview invites, and am now studying medicine at my dream university. Looking back, I can say with great confidence that this would not have been possible without Michael, Ashton, and the entire team at iCanMed.

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.

In addition, the depth of the course’s content provided me with an extremely thorough understanding of the interview and the material, while being really easy to understand as well. I love the “content creation” section because other courses that I’ve attended focused on either memorising answers to interview questions, or vague “theories” that do not tie in with what the interviewers are looking for. When I attended the interview at Monash, the experience was exactly like what Michael mentioned; the questions asked were completely new scenarios. However, I was able to approach each question with confidence, because I had learnt the tools and content required to answer them. I liken this to a traditional school exam, where if you were to memorise the answers to a math problem for instance, all the person setting the paper has to do is change the format slightly and you would be lost. The key is to have a repertoire of knowledge that can be adapted to different situations, so that any question that comes out in the exam or interview can be answered. 

iCanMed is the only company that I have experienced that embraces “content creation”, and this combined with Michael’s immense experience and ability to personally answer quite literally every single question I asked him with detail and clarity are the primary reasons why I wholeheartedly recommend them. Besides that, Michael and iCanMed’s dedication to their students’ success is second to none. The first time I applied to medical school in 2018, I was accepted to UNSW, JCU and UWS. However, I was rejected from Monash due to my ISAT (International Student’s Admission Test) score. Studying at Monash had always been my first choice, so I decided to reapply the next year. During my gap year, I really got to know Michael and through talking to him on the phone and our conversations over text, I started to see him, not as a tutor or the founder of iCanMed, but as a friend. This is something truly unique because there was never a time when I felt that I was a “customer” to iCanMed, but that I had their full support during my medical school application. 

Yes, your parents will be your primary pillar of support, as it was for myself, but having this friendship, this bond with someone else can really provide a different perspective and a type of support that will help you rise to any challenges that you may face. The interview assesses your personal traits, so it is crucial to go into it with an optimistic, genuine and authentic mindset. I feel that this was really cultivated by the feeling that I was part of the “iCanMed community”, which helped me embrace the process and build up an intrinsic self-confidence within myself, a drive to really give the interview my all. I wholeheartedly recommend iCanMed without hesitation. Michael is absolutely game-changing when it comes to preparing students for the medical school interview, and I am confident that you will have an incredible experience as well!

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.

Unlike many preparation companies, Michael and Ashton are a message away, offering 24/7 services. In the previous year, I was able to go to them for practically anything—interview questions, note taking worksheets, study techniques, UCAT. The list goes on. My questions were endless, but despite this, they patiently answered each one, and continued to encourage me. iCanMed uses the approach of studying smart. In my preparation for the UCAT and interviews, iCanMed has taught me to directly identify and target my weaknesses, instead of wasting my (scarce) time on trial and error, and mindless practice. As a student juggling other school subjects and commitments, this was beneficial in saving time, whilst still building the depth required to do well in the UCAT and interviews.

The road to medicine is a very long one, with multiple steps on the way. iCanMed has supported me in each step of this journey, not only preparing me for UCAT, but for interviews, medical application writing and study as well. I must emphasise how large a role Michael’s interview training course played in my acceptance in medicine. Along with teaching me to answer each question type, it gave me peace of mind in understanding what interviewers were looking for and the common marking system.

I am forever thankful to Michael and Ashton and rest of the team for helping me make my dream come true and would highly recommend it to anyone who’s considering pursuing a career in medicine or dentistry.

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.

I was an iCanMed student during 2019 and it was one of the best experiences during my schooling career. Their guidance and knowledge with regards to the UCAT and interview were extremely helpful and enabled me to perform at the peak of my capability. Not only did iCanMed give me the insight into doing well in these two important aspects of the selection process, they also gave me confidence in my own ability as I went in knowing that I had tackled the hardest questions and was really well prepared. I was fortunate to have Michael really guide me through the interview process so that when it came to the actual interview, I just let the skills that I had acquired work for themselves.

After I undertook some work experience in the healthcare field in Year 11, I was really keen to see if I had what it took to pursue medicine as a career in the future. A bunch of students from my school were attending one of iCanMed’s free masterclasses, so I decided to check it out. Not only was Michael’s session incredibly informative in giving me the specific requirements to be eligible for medicine across Australian universities, but it was also where I first attempted some practice UMAT (not UCAT, it was early 2018) questions. I found Michael’s teaching/explaining style extremely informative, and I was keen to try out an iCanMed course for myself. 

The online Q-and-A feature, a part of this course, allowed me to clarify any doubts I had about specific questions within 24 hours, which proved extremely valuable to me.

When Year 12 came around and I received my UCAT scores, I was doubtful about whether they were competent enough for an offer from any med uni, let alone Adelaide. But Michael reassured me and suggested I begin interview prep ASAP. Sure enough, I received interview offers from 5 universities for medicine, and Michael was kind enough to run me through the different interview structures and prepare me for what I could expect. At one point in January, I thought I missed out on getting any offers to study medicine, but then when I did, it was probably one of the best highlights of my life. A huge thank you to Michael, Ashton and the entire iCanMed team; I can’t recommend them enough!

For high school students like myself, I imagine the seemingly infinite stakes of the UCAT are quite daunting and enough to deter many students from pursuing medicine and dentistry. Thankfully, iCanMed delivers both a course and a support program to ensure students are able to learn how to prepare for the test, and are never disheartened from doing so. iCanMed’s unique teaching philosophy embodies the aphorism ‘quality over quantity’ and provides a systematic approach to tackling UCAT questions, ensuring a student’s weaknesses can be identified and consolidated prior to the actual exam. 

Ashton, Michael and the rest of the team are excellent at what they do, as evidenced by the extent to which their solutions are detailed, and their ability to personalise support and instil confidence in students, meaning anyone has the potential to achieve. Take myself as an example; during a diagnostic exam with another tuition company in the middle of Year 11, I was expected to achieve the 50th percentile. One year later, I had sat the UCAT and secured interviews at the university I had applied to!

In similar fashion, the interview can be intimidating due to its huge weighting relative to its duration. However, iCanMed are once again capable of providing a quality teaching service to ensure students put their best foot forward and are successful in demonstrating their qualities to medical and dental schools. The thorough, structured nature of the course ensures any student is able to understand and apply the techniques involved in formulating a compelling response to whatever question is thrown at them. Moreover, the ability to attend classes and practice mock interviews ensures no student is neglected, hence everyone has unique plans to best suit their communication styles and ensure they effectively portray their capability to work in healthcare.

Pursuing a career in healthcare can be very daunting and difficult to go through without clear guidance. At the start of 2019, I was very unsure of what to do and how to go about getting the best UCAT ranking I could. After getting into contact with iCanMed, Michael was able to explain what exactly would be best for my situation. I am very grateful to have been able to use iCanMed’s services for both UCAT and interview prep. I was very impressed by the layout of the LMS and how it shows a clear progression of all the areas to be covered in each section. The UCAT workshops were awesome in terms of the amount of content that was explored and I was very happy that all my questions were clearly answered by Ashton. The interview masterclass was also very in-depth, with the focus being on the approach to questions over just memorising answers for questions. I recommend that those who take UCAT or interview courses at iCanMed really take advantage of the great staff and ask as many questions as you can.

Wanting to do medicine had a lot of confusing elements, and starting off I really wasn’t sure what I was doing, or how to prepare. Thankfully, Michael and his team’s wealth of knowledge really simplified and explained every facet of medicine entry and preparation for me. In particular, being able to talk with them on Facebook or online at any time and receive instant feedback to any queries I had was a lifesaver for me.

For UCAT, the sequential layout to lessons and emphasis on doing questions slowly and correctly made a huge difference to learning the intricacies of seemingly impossible question types, and Michael’s experience with medical interviews really helped clarify any questions and concerns I had with the interview process.

iCanMed was incredible in supporting me with my Year 12 journey and really helped me get over the line with my UCAT and interview. The course itself was designed in a super simple and easy-to-understand manner and worked really well with how I like to study. Any questions I had would be quickly cleared up by Ashton in the comments of the videos. The UCAT masterclasses were also a great opportunity to solidify and enhance my learning and skills, as well as clear up any doubts in person with the instructor. The questions were a good reflection of the difficulty of the actual UCAT exam and prepared me well for success. Being able to personally contact the instructors and discuss concerns was amazing for figuring out strategies to address weaknesses and overcoming challenges. The interview course was also incredible—all of the tutorials really put me in the correct mindset and frame of mind for nailing interview questions and, combined with the great in-person masterclasses, allowed me to succeed in my WSU Med interview! I highly recommend iCanMed to anyone willing to put in the work and do what it takes to succeed in the UCAT and interviews.

Starting off UCAT prep can be very daunting. When I first opened the UCAT Consortium question banks I had absolutely no idea how to even approach the questions! However, following Ashton’s online tutorials gave me a method and direction for answering each and every question, making them far less challenging, and Michael’s constant online support answered all my personal queries, allowing me to stay up-to-date with my techniques which allowed me to stay confident and motivated leading up to the exam date. Overall, I highly recommend this course as it helped me understand how to cater and answer for every different type of question while simultaneously giving me that support and confidence, helping me achieve a place in medicine!

I started my preparation for UCAT with no idea of what I was doing, until I found iCanMed. Their online resources were well-structured and was able to ease me into the groove and style of the UCAT. Both Ashton and Michael have been extremely supportive and demonstrated their in-depth knowledge and experience regarding what it takes to get into med; iCanMed was able to correct any misconceptions I had regarding UCAT and interviews and I felt this was especially important when considering a pursuit in medicine. Overall, I owe a large part of my success to iCanMed; it was the only resource I used for my preparation and I felt it was more than enough. I especially enjoyed the workshops which were not just informative but also engaging and fun. Hence, I highly recommend the course to anyone considering med as their first preference.

I was so pleased to have a received a first round medicine offer for my top preference but am aware it wouldn’t have been possible without your support! The really thorough question breakdowns, the extensive amount of resources and questions, as well as the fast, efficient and useful feedback which I was provided with for both the UCAT exam and the medical interview was a testament to your expertise and support. The guidance of iCanMed enabled me to understand the large proportion of weighting which is associated with the interview and UCAT, which further motivated me to ensure I focused on these aspects of my studies just as much as my Year 12 subjects.

Choosing iCanMed to help guide my interview prep was one of the best decisions I have made. Having received numerous interview offers, I had no clue on how to best prepare for them but I knew that they could have significant impacts on your application outcome. From the outset I could tell that this course was structured and simple. The videos made learning engaging and being able to review them was useful. Furthermore, Michael shared with us his knowledge on answering different question types during the 2-day workshop, and the hands-on practice and feedback were invaluable. 

Michael and his team at iCanMed would regularly answer any questions I had, whether it was their opinions on uni courses or providing even more feedback. I cannot recommend this course enough to anyone pursuing a career in medicine.

Having no idea what the UCAT was about or how I was to go about preparing for it, my hopes of getting into medicine seemed pretty slim in Year 12. Yet here I am, receiving 96th percentile in the UCAT and about to start studying Medicine at UNSW. So what happened in between? iCanMed did. Before I discovered iCanMed, sitting trial UCAT exams meant getting predicted to hit somewhere in between 5th or 6th deciles. But with video tutorials and tutors online to answer any and every question within 24 hours, iCanMed helped boost my competency and gave me a holistic understanding of every type of exam question. 

Both Michael and Ashton were always ready to give concise and constructive feedback and responses were always given as soon as possible. Not only that, iCanMed provided video tutorials and worksheets that broke medical interviews down to the core, making it hard not to be as prepared as possible. In short, iCanMed has helped me improve from a no-hope to a student ready to attend a top-end medical school. I recommend the online course to anyone and everyone planning to sit or getting prepared for the UCAT exam or upcoming medical interviews. Trust me, it’s a real game changer.

iCanMed has helped me immensely in both my UCAT and interview preparation this year. Coming into the year I had absolutely no idea what the UCAT test was and what the question styles were like. After joining the Pro Course, iCanMed’s systematic approach towards the UCAT really helped me understand each and every question style and how to tackle them with ease and confidence. What really makes iCanMed stand out is all its video lessons and video solutions which meant that lessons were very flexible and I actually had a person interacting and going over questions which made it far more enjoyable to learn. 

The step-by-step video solutions by Ashton were highly beneficial as the very detailed nature of them meant that I was able to understand all the thinking processes and steps required to complete a question, which are absolutely crucial when completing the UCAT examination. Above all, Michael and Ashton are both highly dedicated towards helping their students and whenever I had any queries, concerns or just general questions, they would answer within 24 hours.

Michael’s interview course was also a major reason why I was able to get into medicine. Knowing that the interview is the one component that can make or break your medical application, I was pretty worried and unsure on how to best approach it. However, Michael is peerless in his knowledge on the interview process and he provides invaluable advice on how to approach questions and how to really stand out as a medical candidate. Overall, iCanMed was primarily why I was able to get into my dream course and I strongly recommend anyone who intends to study medicine to learn from iCanMed.

After going through a few UCAT prep companies I finally discovered iCanMed by attending one of their free workshops. Their comprehensive and systematic approach of teaching immediately drew me into purchasing their Pro Course. Along with that, the continuous and prompt support from Michael and Ashton were, I believe, two of the greatest factors which contributed to my success and calmed my nerves to perform on the day. With the interview prep in the UCAT Pro Course, iCanMed proved yet again to be the most useful preparation tool when it came to the interviews.  

Again, the systematic approach coupled with an experienced tutor like Michael made the interview process less daunting. I can’t thank you both enough for your immense support throughout these two years, which has offered me a place in my dream university to pursue medicine.

iCanMed helped me a great deal in preparing for the UCAT. From providing broad overviews of how the test was structured, to providing detailed solutions for each and every question, enrolling in the iCanMed UCAT program enabled me to understand what the UCAT really was, and gave me the confidence that I needed to sit the actual test. I found the sub-24-hour responses particularly helpful, as was having video solutions for all practice questions. Above all, what I gained the most from iCanMed’s UCAT course was their message of not rushing into practice questions immediately, but learning how to approach each question type systematically, with the 5-step process that I adapted to work best for myself. 

Finally, their emphasis on reflecting on your thought process after completing each question is something that I think is really important, and that helped me get a desirable UCAT score. iCanMed’s holistic approach to UCAT preparation and their affordable pricing sets them apart. Thank you, Michael, Ashton and the team!

I could not have asked for a better course when I joined iCanMed. The UCAT is a daunting exam and iCanMed’s systematic approach to help you develop the necessary skills for this exam is phenomenal. One of the first things you learn with iCanMed is that UCAT is without a doubt an assessment of your logical reasoning skills and just like any skill, it takes practice.

The iCanMed course provides a dissection of every question type in the exam and is taught in an engaging video-style format which demonstrates how to approach any question at the fundamental level. Once you build this understand of the assessment, iCanMed provides you with a heap of questions for practice, including exams, each question with its own video solution, guiding your thinking process every step of the way!

You get ongoing support from the team as you learn to cover all your weaknesses, making you as confident as possible heading into the exam. Not to mention, Michael, the co-founder, is always willing to give you a hand in making this terrific course personalised to your learning style. If you’re looking for experienced and genuine people who will guide you towards UCAT success, I could not recommend iCanMed enough!
