Initial Consultation

If you are considering applying to medical school, a Private Consultation with one of our medical school admissions consultants is the best way to build a strategy that will increase your chance of winning a place.

We run Private Consultations throughout the year, and encourage both the student and their parent(s)/guardian to attend. The session is most suitable for students over 15 who are achieving highly in school exams, particularly those in the sciences.

Private Consultations cost £270 and can take place in our central London offices or over Skype. All bookings are taken over the phone with a consultant, and can be scheduled out of normal office hours and at the weekend if this suits your schedule better.

What Are The Benefits?

A Private Consultation offers candidates and their families the opportunity to gain research-led answers to any question about medical school admissions. We work with medical doctors and former medical Admissions Tutors, whose expertise guides the many choices that must be made as part of an application. 
In addition, every applicant is different, and requires personal attention to identify strengths and areas for improvement. Talking through your application with one of our Senior Consultants is the most effective way to build a plan for success.

Our Results

Our consultation format has been honed over nearly 20 years to give you the best possible start to your journey. It is divided into three key sections...

Interview with a man and woman

Medical mock interview

In a one-to-one interview, we will assess your communication skills, scientific knowledge and potential to study Medicine at university, using real past test and interview questions.

Parent consultation

Following the interview, we will ask the student to leave the session briefly in order to discuss their application with their parents. This is also a chance to ask questions about any aspect of the medical admissions process.

Evaluation and next steps

We bring the candidate and their parents back together for full feedback. We then provide comprehensive answers to your questions regarding how to prepare for medical interviews and tests (such as the BMAT, UKCAT, and MMI assessments). As a group, we can then build a tailored plan for preparing the application, including inviting the student to join our Medical Application Programme, if appropriate. The strategy we build will develop the candidate’s strengths in each area of the medical application process, significantly increasing their chances of success.
