We do this by offering far more value at a much lower cost. On average, our services cost 50% to 75% less than other premium coaching providers and private tutors.

Not all courses are created the same. As seasoned veterans in helping students achieve their best, we know what a course needs to include in order to help anyone learn and refine their skills and come out on top of the UCAT or interview.

Frequently Asked Questions
In 2019, almost 400 iCanMed students scored 3000 or more (i.e. 96th percentile or higher) on the ANZ 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 2,000 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, transferable and agile techniques. Imagine having 2,000 videos (with a total length of at least 12,500 minutes) of your math teacher solving every question in front of you!
