"Doing 1-1 medicine interview practice with Akash provided me with the content, structure and confidence to succeed at my interview. Breaking up what I needed to do with helpful pointers to direct my practice proved invaluable when it came to medical interviews. I would recommend him to anybody wanting to secure their place at Medical School"

"My best advice is to get in contact with The UKCAT People (Akash & Sonal in particular) as soon as possible. Without your help I wouldn't have gained medicine offers from King's, Birmingham, Manchester and Sheffield for Dentistry! They went over and beyond!"

Benjamin, London

UCL Medical School

"Akash went through my medicine personal statement in immense detail, offering suggestions that none of my teachers had even thought of. He knew exactly what was needed to enhance my personal statement, and went through the tips logically."

"I travelled from Dublin to London for the UKCAT course run by Sonal from The UKCAT People, and it was definitely worthwhile! I'm now looking to continue with some UKCAT Skype lessons closer to my exam."
