Here at Blue Peanut we do things differently…
Based on our research, we cover over 90% of the curriculum used in UK medical school interviews. We cover Scottish, Welsh, N Ireland, English, Oxbridge and private medical schools. MMI and Traditional.
Our doctors teach medical students from UCLAN, Manchester and Lancaster medical schools. We have extensive experience in helping students that are struggling and need extra help or are academically gifted but lack confidence.
We have added course topics relevant to dentistry applicants (for example manual dexterity). We work with experienced dentists in designing our course.
We could sit on the medical school interviews panels in which we teach but this is a conflict of interest. It is not fair for us to teach you and then interview you.
We welcome applicants at all stages of their career - from years 11,12,13 students to graduate entry candidates.
We cover over 50 topics, based on our own research as medical school tutors and feedback from thousands of students over the years.
We include regular refreshments, a top lunch and breakout sessions where you can talk to the tutors and other students. This is the most enjoyable way of preparing for the exam.
Feedback has been positive from all our students as well as teachers and parents with satisfaction rates of over 99%. We have posted some testimonials for you so don’t take our word for it! We are a 5 star provider of medical education.
Last year (2019 entry) was our best cohort yet. A record 98.2% of students reported offers. Record numbers of students with 3 or 4 offers. Students having offers reduced from AAA to AAB because they did so well at interview. Come and join them on one of the most successful interview courses in the UK!
THOUSANDS OF STUDENTS, TEACHERS, PARENTS AND DOCTORS TRUST BLUE PEANUT AND ITS DOCTORS AND TUTORS TO HELP MEDICAL SCHOOL APPLICATIONS SUCCEED.
Our MMI Circuits are designed AND invigilated by fully qualified doctors who teach at UCLAN, Manchester and Lancaster medical schools. No other provider uses tutors with our level of expertise.
During each session, you will experience 20 MMI stations. These are designed to assess the same topics used by UK medical schools in actual MMI interviews.
Each circuit lasts half a day. The topics will change in the afternoon so it is possible to book two sessions and practice two different MMI circuits.
We will base the topics on the choice of medical schools candidates have chosen on the UCAS form. We strongly recommend you attend our medical school interview course first before you book your MMI circuit.
