The Blue Peanut One Day Intensive UKCAT Course

  • We provide independent textbooks so that you have everything that you need for your preparation. Update March 2017 - We are looking at UKCAT 2016 by Wren, Succeeding in the UKCAT by Green and How to Master the UKCAT by Bryon.
  • We will teach you proven methods that you can use in all areas of the UKCAT exam to boost your scores in each area of the exam.
  • There is intense time pressure in the exam. We will teach you how to revise and make a revision plan, as well as techniques to help you answer questions more quickly.
  • The UKCAT exam can and must be prepared for correctly. We will teach you where the examiners try and deliberately trick you and where students make mistakes. This is harder to learn on your own from a textbook.
  • We do our own research and develop our teaching based on our own analysis of thousands of UKCAT questions, our own expertise in medical education, our experience in teaching medical students, as well as looking at a huge number of sources. Let us do the hard work for you, so you can concentrate on revising.  
  • You are taught by a medical school undergraduate tutor who is also a practicing doctor in a small classroom just like at college. There is no better qualified person to teach you. 
  • Our courses are from only £169
  • Included in the course fee are your textbooks, refreshments, lunch and a whole day of intensive training.

Don’t take our word for it. Our qualifications and experience as doctors and medical tutors is clear to see, but also see the testimonials of previous students below. Have a look at our Facebook page where we have uploaded real medical school offer letters from our students and photos from previous courses. Our students get results!

Here is some feedback from students which we have taught for the 2016 UKCAT Examination:-

    Ethics and video consultation session was really useful. Never come across this before and now know specific answers. Will help me greatly at interview. 

    Dr Khan sat down with me and we went through a mock MMI interview and worked with me on areas I need to improve. I’ve now realised why I did badly last time ...

    I really learnt a lot, and had much to take away with me. I hardly ever feel that I’ve gained so much from a session.

     Taught me a lot that reading books for months have failed to teach me with regards to my interview technique.

    I have passed my interview last week and got an offer. I wanted to say thank you for all your help in preparing me for my interview.

    Excellent teacher. My confidence greatly increased and the tips were really useful. Could not have gained my place without this.

     Thank you for all your help. Saved me a lot of time as all the work was done for us.

    Many opportunities to learn and practice my skills with the doctors. The teaching I received was invaluable when it came to the interview.

    Thank you once again for an excellent session. Learnt lots of skills and I now know what I need to do in the interview.

    I’m glad to tell you that I got an offer. Your teaching was invaluable as the stations in the MMI were almost exactly what we went through.

    Dr Mannan is a fantastic teacher and friend who has played a major part in my becoming of a GP partner.

    Dr Mannan  was very approachable and friendly and gave good insight and explanation of what to expect during my training years.
