UCAT Calculator: Convert your UCAT Scores into a Percentile Rank

The following UCAT Percentile Calculator can help you determine your UCAT rank. 

Note: This calculator should be used as a guide only, as the actual UCAT percentile can be slightly different. Universities usually do not release the actual UCAT scores, UCAT percentile, and/or  UCAT rank cut-off scores until the actual academic year has started. That is, once everyone has been interviewed, and students have been accepted into the medical/dental courses, only then universities will know the actual Range (lowest-highest) accepted UCAT Score, UCAT Percentile, ATAR, OP, GPA for the given academic year.

Therefore, if you are wondering if your UCAT score or UCAT percentile, and your academic achievement is good enough to receive an interview offer, the reality is, that no one really knows, not even universities themselves as at this stage this information is simply not available.  Therefore, reflecting on the last 20 years of our experience in assisting students getting into their chosen medical courses, in order to increase your chances of becoming a successful applicant,  we highly recommend that you apply to all of the universities which offer undergraduate medicine and dentistry, choose ‘bonded placement’ (providing you are happy to accept ‘bonded place’ if offered), ensure you are ready for the interview well in advance of the actual interview period and see what happens at the end.  

Each university has different selection criteria and admission procedures, which can vary from year to year. We encourage you not to shut down your dreams of becoming a doctor just because you think that your UCAT score or ATAR is not high enough. If you don't apply, you will never know if you stood a chance of securing one of the university spots to study the course of your dreams.   

Use the UCAT Calculator to enter your 2019 UCAT scaled scores to find out your UCAT percentile ranking is.

UCAT ANZ 2019 Summary Test Statistics

(retrieved from UCAT ANZ / Pearson VUE, 2019)

The following table of summary statistics of the scaled scores for UCAT ANZ 2019 should assist you to understand your results in relation to those of other candidates. The scaled score range for each cognitive subtest (and the SJT) is 300 – 900 and the range for the Total Score (sum of the four cognitive subtests) is 1200 – 3600.

ucat score percentile rank results 

The following table gives the decile rank of ANZ candidates based on the Total Score. Each decile represents 10% of candidates based on their overall test performance (excluding SJTs). The 1st decile represents a score at the 10th percentile; the 2nd decile represents a score at the 20th percentile, and so on.

More detailed information will become available in September 2019 and will be published accordingly.

What does UCAT ANZ say about universities and how will they use UCAT Scores and UCAT Percentile?

UCAT results are made available before most of the university application deadlines and you should use them to help inform your university choices, otherwise, you might be wasting an application. 

Universities will provide information on their websites regarding application deadlines and how they use the test in admissions.  For some universities, the UCAT score is a significant factor in their consideration of applications. For others, it may be a less significant factor or only used in marginal situations.  Most universities consider the total score (i.e. the score after each of the cognitive subtest scores have been added together). Some, however, do look at individual subtest scores and may even have a cut-off score for a particular subtest. 

Some universities have a threshold score that candidates have to achieve in order to be considered further in their admission processes. This score is often determined each year but universities will usually indicate on their website threshold scores that have been used in previous years. 

Other universities use UCAT alongside factors such as academic achievement and interview performance. The factor may be significant or may contribute a small amount to the final outcome. 

Some universities use the score (sometimes in addition to the above uses) to discriminate between candidates who have ‘scored’ equally at some point in the process. The UCAT score provides an additional way of ranking such candidates in order to decide who can proceed to the next stage. 

A small number of universities use the test to provide opportunities to candidates who perhaps would not have progressed to interview (for example) using traditional selection methods. This may advantage candidates who have not have achieved the highest academic score but have performed particularly well in the UCAT.

What is AMIET?

The first of its kind in Australia, National Institute of Education (NIE) has launched its Advanced Medical Interview Entry (AMIET) Program in 2019, a preeminent and personally-tailored, psychologically sound, research-based program for developing aspiring doctors and helping them gain entry into medical school.

To put together this program, NIE educational consultants have joined forces with psychological scientists, presentation coaches, medical professionals, psychological consultants and university medical program admissions specialists to create a four-part training program that is as thorough as it is unique.

Available Online or In Person

The AMIET 12-hour program can be booked in full (as four separate 3-hour sessions, and receive the training via Skype or Zoom, or in-person near Bond University on the Gold Coast, Australia. Students can also choose to attend a mixture of session formats, such as enjoying three online sessions, and then having their final session on location, should there be booking available.

Sessions are jam-packed with information, industry secrets, personal analysis, mock interview practice, re-enactments, psychometric training, and personalised self-development activities – and the ratios of these parts are decided on a per-client basis, depending on the student’s strengths and weaknesses. 

The Bond AMIET Program is an intensively designed immersive learning experience and is encouraged to be experienced over a two week period. It can be carried out to prepare for this year’s intake (if there is only a short period of time leading into psychometric testing and interviews) or it can be taken over a longer period of time to prepare for next year (2020). It’s never too early to start! It is not advised to complete the program in anything less than a three-day period.

Qualified Psychological Tuition for High-Achieving & Gifted Students

Each AMIET Program is run by a qualified Psychological Consultant who specialises in medical entry programs and high-achieving / gifted & talented students. This is a once in a lifetime chance to learn about yourself in detail, prepare yourself for a bright and challenging medical future, and to focus with laser clarity on passing your Bond Uni psychometric test and your medical interviews.

The final results of your preparation are in your own hands as an applicant, yet joining the tailored AMIET Program designed for Bond University Medical Entry will give you the best chances of success. Personalised psychological preparation and practise is designed to bring out a side of every applicant that they never knew they had. Strengths are enhanced, weaknesses are neutralised or lessened, and strategic reasoning takes on a new level of profound awareness.

The same skill set that is learnt during this insightful journey are the same skills that will serve you so well during your medical degree. The most tried and tested parts of this program have been garnering successful results from medical interview applicants for years via NIE’s panel of experienced educational specialists. Reports are that this type of socio-emotional and behavioural training not only increases the efficacy of interview preparation but also leads to extra resilience, foresight and aptitude during one’s whole medical school career.

Advanced Training for Bond University Medical Interviews

The premier round for the AMIET has been designed for the Bond University Medical Program, which consists of Bachelor of Medical Studies (BMedSt) and Doctor of Medicine (MD). It has been tailored to address the Bond MMI and Bond Psychometric Test. Bookings for the Bond University AMIET Program via NIE opened on the 24th of January 2019 and training spots are filling up fast. 

“I wish I had gotten interview training last year. I actually thought I had done well in my Bond MMI at the time. I had answers, and I felt ok, yet I didn’t get an offer. Now I understand that I answered the questions they were asking on the surface, but I didn’t communicate any of the information that I really needed to. I feel pretty silly…”

                                                                      ~ Jeremy

The AMIAT is run differently for each individual applicant, although a breakdown of the general approach can be helpful for applicants to decide whether they would like to experience the whole suite of sessions included in the training program.

A typical Bond AMIET Program is outlined below.

Student Review (Session 1)

  • Session 1 (3 hours): STUDENT REVIEW. A review of the student and their history, accomplishments and psychological profile. This is followed by an exploration of the process, and context, of tests and interviews for Bond University. A surface examination of the marking criteria for entry to the Bond medical program is begun, using mock interview questions to gather personal information and create future program structures and activities. These activities are prioritised over sessions 1 and 3 (with psychometric training in between), with the areas requiring the most homework addressed first up. Mock interview questions, discussion and personalised activities are designed to include the development of:

  • public speaking techniques
  • lucid thought-to-speech (the connection between the mind and the mouth)
  • strategic interjections of accomplishments
  • relevancy of personal experiences
  • answering structures (intro, body, conclusion)
  • context
  • use of particular words as per student’s individual style
  • strategies for dealing with scenarios
  • immersive actor scenario tactics
  • communication of mental models (and knowing how to recognise when you are being asked to supply one)
  • answering when shocked
  • step-by-step exploration of criteria
  • understanding the ‘underbelly’ of questions asked
  • techniques for dealing with time and social pressure
  • authenticity
  • and many other personalised areas necessary for success during the entry process.

One of the most confronting yet valuable parts of Session 1 is the component that covers ‘How People See You’. It is often the truth that we do not know how others gauge us, and our most loved ones are also not the best judges of this. For example, when you answer questions, do you come across as contrived? Overly-academic? Friendly? Secretive? Unemotive? Calculating? Genuine? Manipulative? Single-minded? Socially versatile? Tactless? Motivated? Biased? Or do you change, depending on the subject matter? Past students have often found this part of interview training to be very valuable as something that helps them understand themselves and others better, long into their academic journeys.

Homework is set to enable full development of a suite of skills, starting with the most important – that is, anything the student is doing that will ‘red-flag’ their interview or their psychometric test. Personal development of areas that will increase scores are also tackled. And training furthermore takes into account the skills that will help the student most leading into their psychometrics, as learning is scaffolded throughout sessions, depending on a student’s ability to handle the cognitive load.

Disclaimer: If there is not too much time left for the student before testing or interviews, the setting of homework tasks and personal tasks targeting improvement may be limited. The Psychological Consultant issues the tasks at their own discretion based on how delicate the confidence of the student is, and how much time is available to fit all the tasks prior to the interview. Confidence on ‘the big day’ is a number one priority.

Deep Psychometrics Training (Session 2)

  • Session 2 (3 hours): DEEP PSYCHOMETRICS. In-depth psychometric test training, to explore the context of the psychometric tests, is conducted, and this is best explored off the back of Session 1. The Bond University AMIET Program includes discussion on what changes Bond could potentially make to their psychometrics, year-to-year, what psychometric tests for medical entry are designed to really discover, and how to know if your answer is appropriate or not. We discuss social desirability bias and the protections that such tests have in place to ensure students are not lying or cheating.

The training is broken up into focus on five different areas:

  • Psychometric tests and what they measure
  • Context of psychometrics at Bond University (and how to recognise what you are being asked)
  • Personality Tests along with practice items
  • Emotional Intelligence Tests along with practice items
  • What your psychometrics say about you

Homework is also issued for any particular areas of improvement in psychometrics that the student reveals themselves to be lacking in by the session’s end.

Personalised Skill Development (Session 3)

  • Session 3 (3 hours): PERSONALISED SKILL DEVELOPMENT. This follow-up section of interview-based training is a continuation from Session 1 and the homework tasks that were issued. These tasks allow the Psychological Consultant to reach a higher level of analysis when it comes to how the student may react under pressure, and also allow the AMIET Program to progress onto mock interview questions that cover areas the student may not have known about in sufficient detail previously.

Part of earlier sessions of the Bond University AMIET Program deals with students gaining valuable experiences that might be missing from their presentation – and although these experiences may just take 30 minutes to gain, they then need to be practised and referenced back to during Mock Interview. This is broached and practised in Session 3.

Mock interview questions are tailored off past questions and off those that allow a student to demonstrate areas of new proficiency. After students have completed homework issued during Sessions 1 and 2, it’s time to look at hard questions relating to the Bond Uni MMI, such as:

  • Have you been practising ‘bad’ interview questions?
  • Do you now have the ability to ‘spot’ which personality traits each question is really addressing?
  • Can you match questions with criteria?
  • Are you communicating the best you (including accomplishments, experiences, intimate thoughts, and themes)?
  • Have you short-wired your anxiety?
  • Are you showing a viable trajectory, from past to future points of emphasis?
  • Have you used the prior training to enhance your likability, memorability and trustworthiness?
  • How do you respond to a wide variety of question materials that may be broached?
  • When is overconfidence read as ‘not caring’?
  • Are you now up-to-scratch with crucial areas of knowledge – where lack of tactful and objective information on hand will reveal your innate biases?
  • Have you worked through any presentation or thought-process problems?
  • Do you have a firm grip on relevant vs non-relevant life examples?
  • Can you set yourself aside from the pack by offering Bond Uni what they really desire?
  • And most importantly, do you feel confident and valuable?

Homework tasks set after Session 3 are completely personalised and dependant on the calibre, quirks and most lovable traits to be enhanced in the student involved. Each intimate journey towards interview preparedness is different.

A typical example of Session 3 homework involves being issued questions that are tailored towards that student’s biggest weaknesses and strengths. The student is instructed to stick the papers onto one side of a simulated ‘interview booth’ door in their home. They are instructed to read each question for 120 seconds and go through the specific thought processes that have been designed for them to overcome their own personal difficulties. This activity encourages a student to bring home their teachings, as well as enabling excitement by anchoring those teachings to the physical motion of opening a door to opportunity. Some students require a step-by-step, criteria-led thought process. Others require mental checklists, visualisations, confidence exercises, mental simulations, or a combination of these tactics to ensure that they enter each MMI booth armed with all the sharpest tools at their disposal.

Fully Simulated Bond MMI Mock Interview Pairing (Session 4)

  • Session 4 (3 hours): FULLY SIMULATED BOND MMI MOCK INTERVIEW PAIRING. Although mock interviews and scaffolded learning questions have been practised at all stages prior to Session 4, this session is different.

Students are expected to attend their online (or in-person) training session in full interview attire, and having taken into account all the preparatory facets of presentation, demeanour, self-care and personal strategies that have previously been discussed.

Program participants are advised to be well-rested prior to the session, as two Mock Interviews are covered – with the first followed by an in-depth critical review that serves as a reminder of all areas covered in training, and which also challenges students to the most difficult types of questions that they can expect. This allows the Psychological Consultant to test the extreme bounds of the student’s capabilities and understanding, and it additionally ensures a last opportunity to offer specific advice should the most challenging materials arise. Although a student may only expect a limited number of very challenging booths at their real MMI (depending on what they personally find most challenging), it is safest to be prepared for the ‘very worst’ you might be thrown on the day.

“I failed my Bond MMI last year and decided to ask NIE to help me this year. I never would have guessed that preparing the wrong way could have been so detrimental before. Last year, I used my ‘Why I want to be a doctor’ answer up as soon as I entered the booth. By the time I was asked a similar question, I was all used up. I froze… I knew I was making it worse, and then my negative thoughts took over and it was all downhill. I lost my confidence in every booth. This year I am making sure none of that will happen to me again!”

                                                                      ~ Olivia

 

The second and last full mock interview is more standard, an immersive experience based on what the student will most likely experience. This allows the student to feel the confidence and elation of a successful Bond MMI simulated experience, after the earlier mock that attends to the subconscious fear of handling questions outside of one’s skill set. This approach has been found to be tiring however practical, safe, enlightening and confidence-enhancing.

This session can be summarised as including:

  • Extreme Bond MMI Mock Interview (full set – 8 booths) – containing the hardest types of Bond MMI Questions that could be asked
  • In-depth MMI critical review
  • Full Bond MMI Mock Interview (full set – 8 booths) – standard difficulty
  • Final tips and tricks

AMIET and the Bond University Interview Process

A number of things set Bond University’s medical entry process aside and make it the perfect premier case to demonstrate the proficiency and whole-person approach that can be attained by the AMIET.

Bond is very research-based in their entry process - which the AMIET focuses on. This approach gives benefits to students who are scientifically-minded, rather than disadvantages to scientifically-minded thinkers, as experienced in most emotional intelligence-based and MMI processes. Bond is often one step ahead of the competition. They were innovative in removing the UMAT test and in recognising the importance of research that showed the only section of the old test that predicted quality medical practitioners was the section built around emotional intelligence (‘Understanding People’).

Bond University Psychometrics

More recently, the Bond psychometric test was introduced in 2018, designed to authentically support Bond’s Graduate Attributes, and it has been personalised for both medical entry and for Bond University, making the practice of other online training psychometric tests obsolete, or even detrimental to applicants. The Bond Psychometric Test integrates some of the only psychological measures of ability-based emotional intelligence, to ensure that they are indeed gaining the right types of applicants that suit their course and their innovative approach to breaking new ground whilst remaining traditional invaluable aspects.

Both the 40 minute and 30 minute Bond psychometric tests differ in scope and measurable constructs. It is important for students to understand what types of applicants Bond is looking for, in order to really appreciate the sensitivity of these types of tests.

Some personality type constructs tend to tune into passing states rather than established traits, and so it is of high importance to be in a solid frame of mind when sitting the test. Emotional intelligence itself is situation dependant, and this means that there are no short-cuts to learning what a valuable medical student is and should be. Exploration of values, responsibilities, and risks and threats to the medical school are all necessary parts of psychometric training, should an applicant really want to excel in the way that only full understanding of context allows.

Self-confidence and over-thinking affects all mental types differently. Some students badly misrepresent themselves when faced with Likert scales, or get confused with wanting to show their best side, yet still, appear humble. Our best advice is to UNDERSTAND THE INDUSTRY. Understand what the psychometric tools are used for, in order to know the baseline for answering. Explore pictorial stimuli and what effect it has on you as a sitting applicant with your own personal biases and personal experiences. Learn when you should take notice of what emotional feedback and which parts of this feedback are socially appropriate to record in a testing environment. If multiple-choice answers come easy to you, but you can’t tell the difference between using them as a measure of self-awareness or a measure of situational judgement, you need psychometric training. The AMIET offers a standard background in psychometrics that you will have to understand in some speciality areas of medicine one day, regardless.

And then this information becomes personalised and practical, by allowing students to attempt psychometric testing items themselves while gaining immediate feedback, and its accompanying self-reflection that leads to rapid improvement of scores.

The AMIET is ground-breaking in its approach to industry standards. The 2018-2019 trend in medical entry is towards encouraging attributes that will lead to better quality medical professionals in an increasingly automated industry, and it is upon each Australian university to keep abreast of these developments. The Bond Psychometric Test ensures that successful applicants approach the next stage of the process with a well-rounded, organic skill set and a true understanding of emotions, people, context and self that takes much effort to develop. If medical interview training doesn’t change and authentically improve you for practising medicine, it’s not real training!

The high levels of critical thinking that have gotten students this far can often be their downfall in tests of this nature unless students can understand the true context of why and how critical thinking is important, and when and why it should complement, replace or dilute more empathetic reasoning. The personality tests that interact with the emotional intelligence component of the test measure some socio-emotional/behavioural traits of an individual that are instinctually desirable, however also some that are research-based and not obvious to the individual who is revealing their nature. Social desirability bias is also taken into account, and the AMIET covers the methods used to ensure that test applicants are not lying and are indeed revealing their true natures.

NIE encourages authentic self-improvement and industry learning in all regards. The AMIET puts a focus on discussions of research and information that makes learning points not only memorable but integrates them into the natural approach of the applicant in order to avoid the bane of practical ‘overthinking’. Although all final improvements and effort rest on the student, our decades of experience in the industry have found that high-achieving students are usually all too ready to work on improving areas relating to situational-based states and traits when they are given the chance. It’s not an easy approach, but it is easily understandable and helps to create the best types of medical students who will be able to withstand the arduous road ahead.

The ultimate and worldwide trend in medical entry techniques, reflected in Bond University’s MMI style, focuses on the intentions of educators to design coaching-proof measures of constructs to truly find the best applicants – and this means that most types of coaching will only get you so far. Most coaching methods are just that! ‘Coaching’ to teach falsity or manipulation to cheat results. However, times have changed – There are no genuine coaching programs that can avoid attending to the individual and their personal development as they improve themselves. You cannot ‘short-cut’ types of tests and interview methods that are designed to bring equity to medical entry. Medical applicants from all backgrounds are required in the medicine of tomorrow. Each of you genuinely needs to put in the hard work to learn what type of student you are expected to be and to BECOME that type of student. This requires motivation and sensitivity to self that can be encouraged through psychological training, industry knowledge, interview learning, and authentic practice. Ivy League level education universities such as Bond recognise all of this and more. They want the real you. Yet all assessment methods present motivated individuals with ways in which they can meet criteria and improve their scores with some solid, hard work.

The Bond Uni MMI is as forward-thinking as their medical degree. Once again, there are no shortcuts for dealing with the social pressure techniques that are applied, within interviews and within the meta-sense of the content focus of questions asked. The approach that Bond uses is very sufficient at detecting genuine empathy, and also for detecting which students perform well under pressure. It is not encouraged to try to prepare answers by rote for their style of interview, as subtle emphasis changes year-to-year can change the context of questions asked and re-prioritise the criteria applied to that booth.

As always, the best way to prepare well for the most important day of your life so far is to KNOW YOURSELF, know the university, know the interview style, know the context in which you are being asked questions, and prepare for a wide range of circumstances that can affect your performance on the day and your final result. NIE’s Bond University AMIET has been prepared to help aspiring medical doctors do this, whilst at all times coordinating the teaching of MMI materials and criteria with an individual and all that they bring.

The UCAT is over and now you are facing a final hurdle on the way to starting studies in the medical field. We are, of course, referring to the medical school MMI / structured and semi-structured panel interview processes, which will be offered to the lucky few.

NIE has been successfully conducting personalised one-on-one interview training sessions for over 20 years.

The one-on-one interview coaching is catered to each student's individual and specific needs, based on their past life experiences, family, cultural and social background, past study experience, and finally, the university for which they are preparing for. This is a very intense interview training session, which places the interviewee in the interview hot seat before they attend the real interview. 

Unlike many interview workshops conducted by various training organisations targeting specific university interviews, our aim is not to rehearse the questions and answers. In fact, we strongly believe and have seen this over-and-over again that, preparing for a specific University Interview is the first step towards failing the interview because the reality is that no one really knows, which questions will be asked at the real interview.  And universities reserve the right to change the questions or structure of the interview ad hoc. Instead, we closely study each individual's demeanour and their style of answering questions, communication skills, and general logics. The interviewer aims at fine-tuning and polish one's understanding of the interview process and how they should tackle different styles of questions. Once these skills have been mastered, no question will come as a surprise. Furthermore, based on each individual's performance during the mock interview, each student will be given constructive feedback that they will have to follow through with during the real interview.

Please note, the places for the one-on-one interviews are VERY LIMITED and Book out fast as they are conducted by the principal/head academic interview training staff of NIE. Therefore, we strongly urge those who are expecting to receive an interview offer to not risk going unprepared to the interview and take advantage of our one-on-one interview training session. 

Depending on availability, your session will be either face-to-face or via Skype video-conference. 

Face-to-Face (in-person) is available in the Gold Coast (Kingscliff) and Gosford region (NSW) 

Skype or Zoom video conference is available nationally and internationally. 

Skype/ Zoom video conference and face-to-face (in person) is conducted by our Senior 1-on-1 personalised interviews trainer, Luan Williams. 

Your interview session also includes a complimentary Interview Techniques manual which will be mailed to you upon your enrolment.

Can YOU benefit from Training for your Medical Entry Interview?

The time has come again where the focus is on Medical Entry Interview preparation. If you have been offered a university interview, or if you are hoping to be offered an interview in a future round or intake, don’t get caught out without a chance to prepare with professionals.

It’s never too early or too late to start. Have all your questions answered: 

  • What can you be looking up or learning in the hours, days, weeks or year before your interview? (Hint: it changes depending on the urgency of your preparation)!
  • When you look at practice questions, do you sometimes wonder where to start?
  • Do you fail to instantly recognise what each question is really asking you, beneath the subject matter?
  • How fast can you distinguish constructs that are being measured, and do you know which factors are a waste of time discussing?
  • Do you wish you had a safe, reliable way of organising questions types in your head to allow the logician in you to shine?
  • Are you aware of the common ideas you must avoid to not instantly be ‘red-flagged’ as a risk to the medical program?
  • Need some fall-back strategies to activate in case you freeze up, lose your train of thought, feel like you’re rambling, or simply don’t have any idea on how to answer?
  • Feel like you’ve spent years adding meaningful accomplishments to your resume which will now be wasted because you don’t know how to merge this information while staying on track?
  • Ever wonder how you come across to strangers? Are you viewed as genuine or fake? Likeable or unpleasant? Humble or proud? Intelligent or robotic? Empathetic or cold? Interesting or boring?
  • Why are they interviewing you in the first place, and who are you really competing with?
  • How can you avoid being overly-logical with your responses, while still ensuring you utilise strategic material that will maximise positive impact?
  • What is the strategic material that instantly makes you valuable to your educational institution of choice?
  • And what should you expect on the big day? Should you wear a tie? Shake hands? Introduce yourself? Speak formally? Abide by which social expectations?

AND MUCH MORE… Do you use an effective answering structure? How are you with double-barrelled questions? Are you sure you’re answering what you’ve been asked? Does your personal communication style need adjusting? How long can you pause and think for? Can you ask that a question be repeated? Should you prepare statistics, and if so, on what?

NIE offers exclusive 3-hour intensive one-on-one interview training preparation for your medical entry interview. If required, extra tuition can be discussed. However, the majority of students find that the 3-hour training session is sufficient for their upcoming interview.

Even more importantly, our specialist trainers tailor your intensive session to your own personal -

  • familiarity with NIE materials;
  • level of preparation;
  • speaking style, including grammar, language, vocabulary, pronunciation, annunciation and speech
  • personality type;
  • cognitive versatility;
  • prevalent interpersonal, oral and non-verbal mode of communication;
  • knowledge of social protocols;
  • individual presentation habits;
  • extracurricular accomplishment;
  • personal experiences; and
  • private strengths and weaknesses.
  • your individual answers to each question asked during the mock interview are deconstructed in detail. 
  • revolutionary interview formula that allows you to answer any question thrown at you during the real interview (this is very important if you do your research) 
  • body language, eye contact, etiquette, animation
  • personalised hints, tips and strategies.

During your intensive session, you will get to experience:

  • relevant strategic and theoretical training;
  • a mock interview;
  • a personalised critical review on every word, nuance, tactic and idea you use in your answers;
  • and individuated, intricate encouragement tailored to your own cognitive, linguistic and communicative talk patterns.

Medical Interviews Tune-up Session

Latest update:

IMPORTANT UPDATE AND ACTION PLAN IN RELATION TO COVID-19

As you are most certainly already aware of preventing the spread of COVID-19 is currently the most prominent issue in our society and is affecting the lives and day-to-day activities of every single individual. In an effort to ensure that we are doing our part and are following important instructions from the State and Federal Government bodies as well as recommendations from WHO (World Health Organisation), we have had to make necessary arrangements and also to implement some important rules in relation to our services.

Precautionary measures in relation to NIE Workshops (Inc. all UCAT & Interview workshops) until further notice:

Are the NIE Workshops still conducted?

Yes. Currently, all our workshops are still going ahead as planned, pending further advice from the Australian Government concerning public gatherings and activities.

What if I am feeling unwell on the day of the workshop?

If you are showing any symptoms of the COVID-19 (Click here for symptoms) on the day OR days leading to the workshopyou must notify us before attending the workshop. It would be important for you not to attend the workshop until you are cleared by an official health care provider.

In most major cities, we have multiple dates for our workshops and we can easily swap your workshop date until you feel well and are symptom-free. 

IMPORTANT:NIE must be notified of the reason for your absence, preferably prior OR on the morning (before 9.00 am) of the workshop at the very latest. The failure to do so will be treated as general absence and you will not be given an option to attend an alternate date.

What if my workshop is cancelled?

As much as this is something that we would like to avoid, in the current climate, safety of our students, parents, and teachers is our main priority and hence it could become necessary or even mandatory. But please do not be alarmed, as per NIE's Terms and Conditions we will provide alternate arrangements to still deliver workshop content in the event of any workshops being cancelled due to reasons beyond organisation's control. With the current and rapid developments around COVID-19 we have been made arrangements ahead of time to ensure that all our current and prospective client's needs are catered for. Should a workshop get cancelled or postponed, you will be notified by email and SMS, and you will have the following options to choose from:

  1. In most major cities, we have multiple dates for our workshops and we can easily swap your workshop date to another date from the list.
  1. NIE has been conducting training via online methods for many years. In an event that you are not able to attend a physical workshop, we have video conferencing and webinar platforms setup and on stand-by to deliver the same workshop content including the parent information session and conducted by the same NIE expert teachers that would otherwise run the in-person training. The only difference is that you will be able to complete the training via an interactive webinar platform. If you are to take this option, then the workshop mock test-paper would be either mailed to your address (or emailed to your NIE-registered email address). 

 

  • NIE respects privacy and will keep all personal information confidential and secure.
  • Where the term 'UCAT' is used 'we are also referring to 'UCAT', that is, the word UCAT and UCAT imply the same meaning in these Terms and Conditions. 
  • All correspondence between NIE and the applicant will be via the email address provided in the application form below. The correspondence will be in relation to UCAT news, updates, reminders and instructions for the face-to-face UCAT workshop, Starter and Update Pack emails.
  • Very important! To avoid our emails from being flagged or spammed, please add our email address  to your address book immediately after submitting your application. NIE will not be held responsible for sent emails not being read by enrolled students. 
  • Ensure that all the provided enrolment information is correct and up-to-date. It is the applicant’s responsibility to ensure that we have your correct mailing and e-mail addresses during the duration of your enrolment.
  • All NIE materials are posted with a tracking number. NIE will take no responsibility for the lost mail if the provided contact information is incorrect.
  • Contact us immediately if you have not received your materials within 2 - 5 working days from the date of purchase.
