Welcome to the site.
Welcome to THE MEDIC BLOG! we are honoured to have you as part of our community. Over the last decade, competition for the most sought after medical and dental schools has been steadily increasing, which has led to the introduction of new measures, such as admissions tests. That’s where we come in:
Our mission to help 1-in-2 candidates each year smash the medical and dental admissions tests.
If it’s your first time here, we know all of the information can be overwhelming, so we’ve created this page, to help get you started.
Step 1 – Get to Know Us
The blog was founded by Michael O. Carter, who has helped hundreds of thousands of students to prepare for the UCAT (Formerly known as UKCAT) through his former blog, known as THE UKCAT BLOG, Michael created the TUB back in 2015 after scoring one of the highest UKCAT scores that year, since then TUB grew and was used by 1-in-2 candidates to prepare for the exam each year. To help reach a wider audience, Michael and a group of other medical students started the MEDIC BLOG to focus on providing tips and strategies to prepare for other medicine and dentistry entrance exams. On the blog we focus on the University Clinical Aptitude Test (UCAT), BioMedical Admissions Test (BMAT) and Graduate Medicine Admissions Test (GAMSAT).
