~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~UCAT, DENTISTRY MEDICINE INTERVIEW TRAINING (#1 in Australia, New Zealand, UK, Personalised Specialist Service)Dear Keen Student or Supportive Parent,
[10 minute easy read]It's lovely to meet you!
https://drive.google.com/file/d/1JzzQnRjaUXCX3CDVXnZs8q0e6IYfOjzP/view?usp=sharingMy name is Alex and I'm a Graduate of UNSW Medicine (BMed) in Sydney, Australia.
I'm a health enthusiast (aged 30+ years) who's passionate about self-improvement. I also enjoy books, documentaries (e.g. TED Talks), and life hacks, so I guess I'm a geek too. At the time of writing, I have listened to 2500+ hours of podcast interviews. I love learning how brilliant people think, how brilliant people communicate, and how brilliant people work.
I am the leading Master Coach in UCAT, Applications, and Medicine & Dentistry Interviews,
in Australia, NZ, and UK, probably the only Medical Mentor with 15+ years of trusted, professional university-specific admissions expertise.
Probably the only Medical Mentor – in the world
– who has dedicated the most hours teaching these subjects.My Happiness Mission: Help as many passionate Mentees get into Medicine and Dentistry as possible.
Now more than ever, our world needs excellent Doctors and Dentists.
I am The Guy, the older brother
, you go to to maximise your chances
for entry into Medicine & Dentistry. If you can get past me,
then it's likely you'll get a solid UCAT Score and get past your guarding Interviewers.
I offer Premium Medical Entry Services
that have – time and time again – proven extraordinary success
We get the job done. 🪄✨I transform Students into confident, charismatic speakers
. In my own inimitable way.You come to me to learn how to communicate effectively for life.You come to me if you want to win.If I cannot help you, I think no one can.
I work with you loyally to help make your Medical and Dental Dreams become reality.
My first UMAT [now replaced with UCAT] attempt - I failed. With resoluteness, I then studied Pharmacy for a year (GPA≈7); overcame the UMAT (99th percentile); sat many Interviews; and secured a position at UNSW Medicine. Fun times!
Since then, I've been helping Students, like you, better comprehend the process of entering Medicine & Dentistry. I have mentored:
✅ Year 9-13 Students
✅ Selective School Students
e.g. James Ruse Agricultural, Baulkham Hills, North Sydney Boys & Girls, Hornsby Girls, Normanhurst Boys, Sydney Boys & Girls, Hurlstone Agricultural, Fort Street, Conservatorium High, Melbourne High, Suzanne Cory, Queensland Academy for Science Mathematics and Technology, and many more.
✅ Private School Students
e.g. Sydney Grammar, Cranbrook, King's, Trinity Grammar, SCECGS Redlands, Presbyterian Ladies' College, Pymble Ladies’ College, SHORE, Scots College, MLC, Meriden, Canberra Grammar School, Radford College, Ballarat Clarendon College, Mount Scopus Memorial College, Geelong Grammar, PLC (VIC), Melbourne Grammar, Camberwell Grammar School and many more.
✅ Rural Students
✅ High-Performing Students
: Duxes, Students with 99.95 ATAR, 45 IB, UMAT and UCAT Students (99th %ile). I mentor some of the VERY BEST.
But to be my Mentee, you do NOT need to a top student who scores perfectly – I have mentored students with 80 ATAR – I just need you to show a willingness to learn and to show enthusiasm.
✅ University Students
: Medical Science, Pharmacy, Optometry, IT, Accounting, Actuarial Studies, Engineering, Arts, Commerce, Law, University Medallists
✅ Established Professionals
: Pharmacists, Physiotherapists, Nurses, IT Professionals, Athletes, ADF personnel, Dentists (wanting Medicine!), Doctors (wanting Dentistry!)
✅ International Students
: from USA, Canada, UK, NZ, China, HK, South Korea, Japan, Malaysia, Singapore, India, Sri Lanka
✅ Mature Age Students, Students from families of Doctors, Dentists, Lawyers, Hospital Directors, Professors, IT, Engineering Professionals, Large Business Owners
You name the background, I've mentored them - over 500 Successful Students.
I'm deeply grateful
to have shared with my Mentees
their successful journeys into Medicine & Dentistry – helping them grow, having welcomed them inside my home, and having been welcomed into theirs.
My Successful Students
have gained places into Medical and Dental Schools
- from the East's USYD, UNSW, WSU, JMP, CSU, UNDS, MQ, ANU, UoW, Monash, UniMelb, La Trobe, Deakin, UQ, Griffith, JCU, Bond, Tasmania
, to the Central and West's Adelaide, Flinders, UWA, Curtin, UNDS
🏅 Overseas - from New Zealand (Uni of Otago and Auckland)
to further away University of Nicosia, Cyprus!
Yes. Every. Where. I kid you not.
I keep in contact with friends in Medicine, Dentistry, Law, Finance, and beyond.
We keep each other informed.I know what I am doing, I deliver results.
Like yourself, I'm passionate about Health (and Life!) – I love it. The reality, though, is that it's becoming harder & harder to get into Medicine & Dentistry nowadays. Thousands of Students apply, but successful only a few hundred. With time, it will get even harder; competition is fierce. You need to realise that you're going against not only Applicants your age but also Applicants who have failed before you. Please appreciate the gravity of the situation.Why do I do What I Do?
I mentor Students into Medicine & Dentistry because three main reasons:1️⃣ I care about you.
It's satisfying helping good people do good things. I've seen far too many a deserving Candidate fail due to poor preparation and complacency; he/she loses time, money, and ambition. My own false start, my journey applying for and studying Medicine, I remember.
I've been in your place; I see your aspirations and your challenges. I'll be invested in you. I'll believe in you, like Family. 2️⃣ I enjoy mentoring you.
I enjoy adding value to and connecting with motivated leaders such as yourself. I listen. 3️⃣ I believe I can help you win.
Getting Students into Medicine & Dentistry is one thing I feel I do much better than others.
My job is to draw out your best.My Style: Empowerment.Do you need to prepare? Yes, absolutely.
If you do not prepare, you are going in blind and setting yourself up for rejection. Benjamin Franklin put it best: By failing to prepare, you are preparing to fail
. Our Year 12 and University exams alone are stressful enough; toss in UCAT and Interview - migraines. The UCAT and Interview are designed to be confronting and personal. Like a sieve, they separate those with the right kinds of skills, personality, and attitudes from those that are interested for the wrong reasons. I can empathise with you; experienced the exciting yet daunting process myself, sitting UMAT and receiving Interview offers to Universities Australia-wide.Can you imagine how I felt failing my first UMAT and then how I felt getting 99th percentile the second time round?Can you imagine how relieved I felt leaving the Interviews knowing I hadn't faltered?
We're all going to have interviews throughout our lives, so refining our skills will stand us in good stead. Interviews are high-stakes events - preparation is a must.
A 99.95 ATAR and 100 UCAT
(good job!) does not
guarantee entry. No. You've toiled to reach this final stage, why would you now gamble? Show the Interviewers that you deserve to be a doctor/dentist. Perform with poise and aplomb.
Assisting passionate Students is a joy of my life. We will not fabricate information to make you sound like a budding Nobel Laureate (sorry); we will, however, identify felicitous anecdotes and work on articulating them to suit the questions. We'll delve much much deeper than what's offered by commercial interview companies, I promise; this Interview Training service was born from my dissatisfaction with them. Our aim is not only Quantity but also Quality. We waste no time, no ridiculousness here.
We'll talk about Med, about what the profession truly entails (yes, it's different to the medical TV dramas), about navigating through Medical School, Hospital Life and beyond - basically, the next 50+ years of your life. We'll have fun. How I wish someone had talked me through it all when I was at your stage. I don't know everything but having endured a rigorous 6-year Medical program with some of Australia's brightest, and having met many Doctors, health professionals, and lovely patients, I have learned some things; these I intend to share with you. If you need someone who is frank in his appraisal, telling you like it is, someone who imbues you with self-confidence - I'm the man.
I'll be real
with you – as an awesome older brother
should, right?Training has proved successful: usually 90%+ Students gain entry into Medical/Dental school.My Students have called me back
sharing that their Interviewers told them they were one of the best Interviewees.
Even those that didn't get in (I'm not God, okay? haha) found our MasterClasses enlightening and worthwhile. Consider Medicine & Dentistry entry a game.
When you win, we both win.
I like winning so trust that I'll do my best to help you.
- Year 10, 11, 12, University Students; Good people passionate about becoming a Doctor/Dentist. WHERE

If you'd like me to attend your High School, do shoot me a message!
✅ 2. EVALUATION-PLANNING MASTERCLASSESMedical Entry can be so perplexing
that you may feel lost and astray. Overwhelmed.
💬 'I just know I want Medicine but not sure where to begin. What, when, where, and how do I apply? I want to learn how to best prepare myself to get into Medicine or Dentistry.'
💬 'I am unsure what's the medical journey trajectory like. Is the profession for me? I need someone to give me a heads up on what to expect.'
💬 'I am unsure if I have what it takes to make it in, if I have enough marks or the personality traits needed. I would like an expert to help me. I want clarity and certainty.'
💬 'I want to feel I have a strong game plan!'Is this you?
An Evaluation-Planning MasterClass
puts you on the correct path.
If you would like, we may start with an Evaluation-Planning MasterClass (2.5-3 hours)
, to help you plan. I give you a ship, map, compass, binoculars, and light
to navigate sailing through the choppy medical journey sea.
To help you secure your footing and bearings. I motivate and empower you.
We review your situation and strategise on what you need to do to get into Medicine, including concerns such as which Universities you're eligible for, your academic grades, and study tips.
Learn what you need to do now.We explore and optimise all your eligible Medical and Dental schools options.
It would be great if your Parent(s)
also join our MasterClass.
You can ask me all your questions to understand clear path forward.
My Past Students felt that having a Mentor hold their hand through the application process lifted heavy weight off of their shoulders. I walk with you through the process step by step.
There are steps you can take now that you and your peers are likely unaware of.
We'll create an Action Plan.
Learn what decisive actions you need to take now.
✅ 3. UCAT MENTORING
Although you may have UCAT papers, they're useless if you do not understand them.
I can help you understand and also provide a Comprehensive UCAT Syllabus (All 5 Subtests)
we work through. You will learn smart strategies to attack the 5 UCAT Subtests. A competitive UCAT score is the KEY
to entry into Medicine/Dentistry.
UCAT (2 hrs) is just as, if not more, important than your ATAR/Uni grades (entire year, 8760 hrs). Absurd, right?UCAT is the KEY into Medicine

I will be direct and real with you – as an awesome older brother should.
If you need a haircut, shave, or manicure, yes, I will tell you. This experience: truly transformative.Excellent educational value
– as we speak, I type detailed notes
– you get Video Recordings
and Full MasterClass Notes.
The number of MasterClasses depends on how much preparation you’ve made, how deeply you want to go through questions, and how confident you feel. Typically, my Successful Mentees request at least 8-10 Strategy MasterClasses (16-20+ hours).
It is totally up to you; nil obligation. However, please do not expect to master all the strategies after 1 or 2 MasterClasses.
We're unlearning years of ingrained, poor habits and relearning good habits.
Success takes time: go ask Usain Bolt, Michael Phelps, Lionel Messi,
and Serena Williams.
Due to limited spots (not jesting, look at Interview MasterCourse schedule
above) as well as very high demand, please book and prepay as early as possible to avoid disappointment.
You may be wait-listed.
Respectfully, I can fit in only so many MasterClasses each day.Reserve your spot now
🔥 C. Comprehensive Mock Interviews (One-to-One)

Prices in AUD and GST inclusive.
If you feel 'these prices seem high,' I would respectfully ask, 'high compared to what'?
Training for medical entry costs less than your school/other tuition fees, yet its importance ... far greater.
The cost is very reasonable – you are paying for my time, experience, & expertise.
The value of the insights you gain FAR outweighs the cost.
When it comes to medical entry preparation (UCAT, Applications, Interviews) – your mentor's expertise is everything.
• Would you prefer to eat a meal prepared by a Kitchen Hand or the Head Chef?
You'll agree both meals' ingredients quality, composition, and taste will differ. Vastly.
• For good health, experience and service, fast processed food or fine-dining?
• To perform your important operation, a trainee student or consultant head surgeon?
I am sure you could find cheaper. But I am not sure whether with that cheaper teacher, you'll learn what you need to succeed. You may get feedback that is 2-minute, unspecific, shallow.
He/She will likely be a medical student with zero or little teaching experience, teaching as a side casual job.
How much time and energy and effort do you think they have invested in their teaching skills and resources?
How much of Medicine or Dentistry has he/she experienced?
If you pay cheap, you will likely get cheap. Please do not say I did not caution you.
UCAT, Applications, Interviews are high-stakes. With all the hard work you've put in, why gamble now to save a bit? Why play with fire?
What makes me different and trusted? My specificity, my 15 years of insights and refining of my craft (unrivalled), and my warm personalised care for you. I teach using love.
Not to mention proven past successes.
With me, you get value, honest personalised feedback. I am all about authenticity.
You can spend weeks, months, years and thousands of dollars and you still may not get what you need. With me, in matter of a few MasterClasses, I give you what you need, and more.
By getting accurate information, directly, you save money, and time.
I believe I am at my prime. We can help you achieve your ‘X Factor.’
I invest an extraordinary amount of work – before, during, after our MasterClasses – to ensure your experience is the best.
I get a lot of enquiries. I need to be clear: I only want to take on Mentees who are passionate about Medicine and Dentistry and believe I can help them.
If you are not willing to invest in yourself or do not believe I can help you, please do not sign up. I do not want the both of us to waste our time. But please, still prepare yourself.
If you do believe I can help you, that's great! Thank you, trust I will do my best to help you LEVEL UP ⬆️
You are smart enough to realise that failing will cost you much more ❌:
1️⃣ Emotional pain and trauma, loss of motivation
2️⃣ $$$ – wasted on non-medical university course fees ($10,000 yearly), living expenses ($25,000+ yearly for rent, food, flights), needing to resort to a full fee medicine course (up to $420,000, Bond University), medical entry repreparation ($1000+ yearly).
For every year delayed into Medicine/Dentistry, you have lost one year’s consultant’s income, which may be $400,000+. Our medicine mentoring fees are a drop in the ocean.💧
3️⃣ Time – your most precious, non-renewable asset. You will need to maintain high GPA, resit UCAT/GAMSAT, Applications, and Interviews – at least for 1 more year. Perhaps many more years, who knows. Not easy. No fun.
You think this is a joke? I have been there, I have done that. Stressful.
Frankly, practising as a Doctor or Dentist, you'll recover the cost of our training quickly.
This is, really, a small investment in securing your bright future.
You will learn mature insights, deep empathy, and emotional intelligence. How to learn.
High-level critical thinking, interpersonal competence, and professional communication skills.
How to be unapologetically you and be appreciated for that. How to develop presence.
Self-awareness. Skills that set you up… strong for life.
If investing a small amount in yourself may help you become a medical or dental student, a more powerful communicator, and a more charismatic person overall, then our Training could be one of the best things you ever do for yourself.
I believe all my Student encounters are meaningful. Apart from assisting with UCAT, Applications & Interviews, I intend to impart Integrity.
Unlike others, I do not do heavy marketing, falsify success statistics, or promise the moon.
As Warren Buffet says: ‘Price is what you pay; value is what you get.’
