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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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!
