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://youtu.be/YGIsZMbBQf8
https://www.facebook.com/alexmedmentor

Professional Services: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1JzzQnRjaUXCX3CDVXnZs8q0e6IYfOjzP/view?usp=sharing

My name is Alex & 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), & life hacks, so I guess I'm a geek too. At the time of writing, I have listened to 1600+ hours of podcast interviews. I love learning how brilliant people think, how brilliant people communicate, and how brilliant people work.

I am a leading Master Coach in UCAT, Applications, and Medicine & Dentistry Interviews, in Australia, NZ, & UK, probably the only tutor with 15 years of trusted, professional university-specific admissions expertise. Probably the tutor – in the world – who has dedicated the most hours teaching these subjects.

I transform Students into confident, charismatic speakers. In my own inimitable way.

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 & get past your guarding Interviewers.

My first UMAT [now replaced with UCAT] attempt - I failed. With resoluteness, I then studied Pharmacy for a year (GPAβ‰ˆ7); overcame the UMAT (99th percentile); sat many Interviews; & 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:
βœ… Year 9-13 Students
βœ… 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.
βœ… 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.
βœ… Rural Students
βœ… 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 just need you to show a willingness to learn and to show enthusiasm.
βœ… University Students: Medical Science, Pharmacy, Optometry, IT, Accounting, Actuarial Studies, Engineering, Arts, Commerce, Law, University Medallists
βœ… Established Professionals: Pharmacists, Physiotherapists, Nurses, IT Professionals, Athletes, ADF personnel, Dentists (wanting Medicine!), Doctors (wanting Dentistry!)
βœ… International Students: from USA, Canada, UK, NZ, China, HK, South Korea, Japan, Malaysia, Singapore, India, Sri Lanka
βœ… 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 350 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 being welcomed into theirs.

My Successful Students have gained places into Medical and Dental Schools in:
πŸ… Australia - 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
πŸ… 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, & 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 & complacency; he/she loses time, money, & ambition. My own false start, my journey applying for and studying Medicine, I remember.
I've been in your place; I see your aspirations & 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 & setting yourself up for rejection. Benjamin Franklin put it best: By failing to prepare, you are preparing to fail. Our Year 12 & University exams alone are stressful enough; toss in UCAT & Interview - migraines. The UCAT & Interview are designed to be confronting & personal. Like a sieve, they separate those with the right kinds of skills, personality, & attitudes from those that are interested for the wrong reasons. I can empathise with you; experienced the exciting yet daunting process myself, sitting UMAT & 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 & 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 & 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 & 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 & 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, & having met many Doctors, health professionals, & 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 Sessions enlightening & 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.

WHAT
βœ… 1. SPECIAL MEDICINE INFORMATION EVENING (FEBRUARY) (FREE)

For years, I ran a public, free, & highly popular Sunday seminar, Special Medicine Information Evening, every February/March, at CabraVale Diggers, Cabramatta.
Senior Students, Parents, Friends welcome!
The aim of the night is to enlighten & inspire students wishing to become Doctors and Dentists.

I've presented at High Schools. If you'd like me to attend your High School, do shoot me a message!


βœ… 2. EVALUATION-PLANNING SESSIONS

Medical Entry can be so perplexing that you may feel lost and astray. Overwhelmed.

πŸ’¬ '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.'
πŸ’¬ '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.'
πŸ’¬ '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.'
πŸ’¬ 'I want to feel I have a strong game plan!'

Is this you?

An Evaluation-Planning Session puts you on the correct path.
I give you a map, ship, binoculars, and flashlight to navigate sailing through the choppy medical journey sea.

We review your situation & 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.

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 & your peers are likely unaware of.
We'll create an Action Plan. Learn what decisive actions you need to take now.


βœ… 3. UCAT TRAINING

Although you may have UCAT papers, they're useless if you do not understand them.
I can help you understand & 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'm happy to mentor you, via 3 Services:

πŸ”₯ A. Intensive UCAT Course (Group)

πŸ’¬ 'I am new to UCAT, and I'd like a thorough introduction.'
πŸ’¬ 'I want to learn problem-solving techniques to work quickly and accurately - reading comprehension, critical thinking, maths calculations, puzzles and patterns finding, judgement skills'
πŸ’¬ 'I have some experience with UCAT preparation, but I am not consistently getting strong marks. I want to learn from a leading UCAT Mentor some advanced UCAT skills.'
πŸ’¬ 'I want to feel confident with UCAT!'

Is this you?

Background.
Why - UCAT stands for University Clinical Aptitude Test.
It is a 2-hour computer-based, 223 MCQ admissions test in July & August, for many Medical & Dental schools in Australia.
Year 12 students & University students are eligible to sit the exam; Year 11s are ineligible.

UCAT is an aptitude (skill-based) test designed to be difficult, selecting for applicants with the most appropriate mental abilities, attitudes, and professional behaviours required in Medicine & Dentistry.
Preparation is a must.

WHEN - During the first week of Autumn School Holidays (11-13 April, 2022), over 3 Full Days (Monday-Wednesday, 10am-5pm daily).

WHERE - Zoom (Live) – Your Comfortable Home or Office. Front Row Seat.

WHO - For Year 10s, 11s, 12s, 13s, Gap Year, University Students
Year 11s - you'll have 15 months to get ready
Year 12s/University Students - you'll have 3 months to get ready. Cutting it close, but it's not too late. Do not dawdle!

WHAT - At Ngo & Sons Academic Coaching, I lead a 3-Day Intensive UCAT Course, 11-13 April, 2022 (April School Holidays)

To a point where you feel you can self-manage. You feel confident.

πŸ’¬ 'I want to feel confident in UCAT and royally cared for. I want to feel like I can crush and power through my exam.'

βœ… 6. MEDICINE DENTISTRY INTERVIEW TRAINING

πŸ’¬β€‹ 'I think I will be getting or I have received Medicine, Dentistry Interviews, but I have little idea on where to do start, what I need to do. I need insights. Help!'
πŸ’¬β€‹ 'I want great burden lifted off of my shoulders, sharing my journey with "an older brother."'
πŸ’¬β€‹ 'I do not want big surprises. I want to know what has been asked in the past, what to expect at my Medicine, Dentistry Interviews.'
πŸ’¬β€‹ 'I do not feel my answers sound articulate. I want to practise with an expert and get honest feedback about my responses and performance.'
πŸ’¬β€‹ 'I am shy. I want to improve my communication skills and be more likeable, important skills that will last me through life.'
πŸ’¬β€‹ 'I want to maximise my chances with help from a leading Medicine, Dentistry Mentor who has helped 360+ Students get into Medicine & Dentistry.'
πŸ’¬β€‹ 'I want to walk into my Interviews feeling confident, self-assured, and grounded. And walk out feeling I have elegantly impressed my Interviewers.'
πŸ’¬β€‹ β€˜I want to improve my voice.’
πŸ’¬β€‹ β€˜I failed my Interviews in previous years. I want this year to be my year.’
πŸ’¬β€‹ 'I want to crush my Medicine and Dentistry Interviews, powering through all of them.'
πŸ’¬β€‹ 'I want to give powerful responses gracefully and come out feeling awesome.'

Is this you?

I am very confident I can help you with your Medicine & Dentistry Interviews.
Interview Training is my Superpower.

I help you with your Interview via 3 ways:
A. University-Specific Medicine Interview Courses
B. Strategy Sessions (One-to-One)
C. Comprehensive Mock Interviews (One-to-One)


When we train together, we deconstruct all aspects of the Interview:
+ Psychology behind your Interviews & Interviewers
+ Articulating your life experiences into concise, clear, compelling responses. By using a Structured Step-wise Approach, you'll become a raconteur, exuding charisma
+ Analyse likely Questions/Scenarios + Uni-specific Real Past Questions
+ Examine the University Course Structure, Medicine/Dentistry Career Path, Student Organisations + Discuss Interview structures (e.g. Semi-structured; Multiple Mini Interview [MMI]) + Master Delivery (The Principle of 6P's, Voice, Breathing) + Non-verbal Mannerisms (Posture, Gestures, Dress, Grooming)


πŸ”₯ A. University-Specific Medicine Interview Courses (Self-study)

πŸ’¬β€‹ 'I want a Medicine Interview Course that is specific to the university I am applying to, comprehensive, proven time and time again to help students to pass their Interviews. The best available.'
πŸ’¬β€‹ 'I am looking for more than generic interview courses offered by big mainstream companies, more than just going around in a circle sharing my answers with other students at my level (awkward and uncomfortable), more than getting trained by medical students 1 or 2 years older than myself, more than 2 minutes of feedback.'
πŸ’¬β€‹ β€˜I have limited time, which I do not want to waste, fishing for random, irrelevant online content, which is unhelpful.’
πŸ’¬β€‹ β€˜I would like to learn how to structure my responses, how to tell anecdotes, how to address scenarios in a compelling way.’
πŸ’¬β€‹ β€˜I want to learn how a Medicine Interview master who has been refining his craft for 15+ years thinks and what he would say.’

Is this you?

Highly University-Specific Courses, which include full videos and full notes.
We cover great breadth – FULL set of recent Past Questions. You learn mostly from me (my thought processes and solutions) and there are opportunities for Student Participation (optional). If we do Live, useful to see how other Students think and how you compare.

Past Students have shared positive feedback that the candidness, accuracy, and thoroughness of these Courses make it unequivocally the best in the country – beating other giant Interview Training companies' generic offerings. Unrivalled.

Past Students attribute a large part of their success to my Medicine Interview Training.

πŸŽ‰ 🎁 Valued Interview Course Students get VIP Priority Booking.


πŸ”₯ B. Strategy Sessions (One-to-One) - A Popular, Personalised, Premium Service.

I pioneered the concept β€˜Strategy Sessions, ’ before other competitor companies.

After you have self-studied the Medicine Interview Courses, we should arrange 1-1 Sessions for you to practise, polish, and perfect speaking. Just as you cannot play great tennis by reading and watching videos alone – you need to go hit balls – you cannot articulate well in interviews by reading and watching videos alone. You need to practise vocalising aloud and receive honest, professional feedback on your responses. You need 1-1 Sessions. Tailored. Bespoke.

We tackle your Interview questions and concerns. We workshop ideas that are compelling.

We will formulate & fine-tune your anecdotes, responses, & performance.
Down to every word, every sound, & every gesture. Precision.
Learn to convey charisma, authenticity, & integrity. Conviction, courage, and confidence.

Personalised – I'm all yours – you have my full attention, we focus on you.
I get to know my Mentees better than even their parents. We build immense trust.
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 & Full Session Notes.

Due to limited spots (not jesting, look at Interview Course 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 Sessions each day.


πŸ”₯ C. Comprehensive Mock Interviews (One-to-One)

We will simulate the REAL Interview using REAL Past Questions.

I ask you questions or role-play, you answer, I give you constructive feedback. You improve and gain confidence.

2-Day Thorough Process:
1. Using my Remote Interviewing software, you self-record your responses on pre-determined date.
2. I analyse your responses – thoroughly, multiple times, over a day.
3. I type out honest, Comprehensive Constructive Feedback, share Your Video Recording, & a Predictive Score.
4. We organise a follow-up Review Session (2 hours; 1-1) in the next 24-48 hours. We discuss & reflect.

Highly effective when done days before your Real Interview.

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 Sessions, 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 Sessions – 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)
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.’

"Hey Alex, I thought I should let you know that I ended up getting into Bond University! Thank you for helping me get to this point! Feels super surreal right now πŸ™‚ My family is really happy. Our sessions were beneficial because you filled in many of the gaps and picked up on places that I didn't realise I was lacking (especially in the why do you want to become a doctor question). You gave me lots of tips outside responses in the interview such as mentality, attire, volume of speech and general presentation which I did not consider and which NIE didn't necessarily do. (I really like these kinds of things sprinkled into lessons). Your psychometric testing resources I felt were significantly more helpful than NIE's. What made you different were: Lots of high quality typed notes and advice; Gave more than just interview question advice; Very professional. Overall, all my sessions with you were very eye opening to areas I needed work on. They also provided me with the motivation to pursue medicine and were very informative throughout. Thank you for all the advice and mentoring you have given to me throughout my journey so far. Couldn't have done it without you πŸ™‚ Derek :)"
