[JTT has] offered me nothing but help and guidance from the very first workshop [they] held before first year started up until the mock MMI, never once did I feel I wasn’t benefitting from anything and unlike a lot of other tutoring companies [they] have chosen to provide really, really affordable and reasonable prices but with amazing quality of service! I loved that [they] were always so honest and straightforward and really cut down on content and got straight to the point rather than teaching us things that weren’t as important.

What grade and interview score do I need to get into Medical School?

Chances of Med School Entry with various GPA and Interview Scores

The “chances” represented by this table have been from independent observation of approximately 400 students since 2011 to 2017. It may not represent the true chances in reality and should only be used as a general guide.
UMAT scores do not tend to change your chance of entry at UoA medical school by a significant amount. This is due to the low weighting, combined with the usage of raw scores instead of percentiles, causing the scores from applicants to be very close/identical to each other with a narrow range. Eg. 70th vs 75th percentile may only have a raw score difference of 1.

This is also why we do not charge for an unnecessarily high-priced, time-intensive UMAT workshop. For more information, see our free UMAT video.

A very worthwhile investment before Semester starts, or even during the Semester when you have time.
It becomes invaluable to fly through UMAT.

Intro to the series

A short introduction to what this series is about.

Step 1. Conceptual Learning

An introduction to the most efficient way you can learn.

Step 2. Making Your Sytem

Form successful habits to automate your efficiency.

Note: Studies show that sticking to a single style of VARK does not offer any benefit – ie. we do not have single study methods that are inherently more effective for us. Rather, research suggests that using a combination of all forms is the most effective.

Step 3. Improving Your System

Easily evaluate and modify your system to ensure continued, constantly improving habits.
