Our Medical Mentorship Program comprises of individuals who have a medical background such as senior medical students to guide our students in terms of their school work and with UCAT ANZ questions. Each of our students are designated with one senior medical student who should be in constant contact with them while they are in the program. UCAT Education students can communicate with their mentors if and when they struggle with their school assessments. We treat this much like long-distance tutoring. Our group of mentors are highly skilled in a variety of subjects from mathematics, English, Chemistry, Physics, Biology, History and more. If your mentor cannot help you with a subject, they will find another mentor who can.

Mentors and their students communicate using e-mail, WhatsApp (such that images can be sent reliably), Skype (such that mentors could demonstrate how to solve questions in live time, company issued phones, Google Docs (for essay/report editing) and Google Drive (to share large files). Parental consent is required and once students finish their time at the program, it is mandatory that communication channels are deleted.
Our mentors are there to assist all students because gaining successful entry into Medicine is not just about acing a high UCAT ANZ score, it is also about their assessments at school. Several factors come into play in order to gain entry into Medicine.
