Why are Summer Schools important?
Summer Schools are fantastic for comprehensive UCAS application preparation and preparing students for university life! They are more successful than attending individual courses, because it ensures that you get comprehensive support resulting in university offers. For example, attending one UKCAT course might improve your score, but you may not get an offer because of the rest of your application. On average, 10-15% of UCAS applications to individual medical schools, result in acceptance (data taken from UCAS records). Other UCAS figures suggest that the chances of securing a place in at least one medical school could be as high at one third. Current figures from the Medical Schools’ Council represent a range of applicant to place ratios, from 6:1 in Cambridge (a 16.7% success rate) to 14.3:1 at BSMS (a 7% success rate). Last year over 80% of our medical summer school students had at least 1 offer.
We offer dedicated Dentistry and Veterinary Summer Schools, both of which are also highly competitive courses.
Who can attend?
The Medic Mentor Summer School is incredibly popular and fills up fast! So please register early to avoid disappointment. You can register for the summer school up to 3 years ahead of time, which also means that you can spread the cost with an interest-free monthly instalment plan. The earlier that you register, the lower your monthly repayments will be.
