6med started up in 2013 with the BMAT Crash Course, designed to fill the gap in the market for appropriately priced BMAT preparation courses. It was originally supposed to be a fun, summer job to pass the time during the endless University summer holidays, and to avoid having to work at Tesco. The course’s success was far greater than we could have ever imagined, and in 2014, we expanded creating the UKCAT Crash Course and the Interview Crash Course, both of which were met with great reception from the hundreds of students who attended them.
We’ve been running these courses for 3 years now, and we’ve taught over 3,000 students. We’re a small, tight-knit company, built and run entirely by medical students while doing our degrees. Juggling our time between our studies and 6med can be challenging at times, but we all really enjoy teaching, and love helping out students who are in the position we were in only a few years ago.
Our knowledge, expertise and course materials have touched the hearts and minds of students all over the world. We’re incredibly proud of what our company has become in just a few short years, and can’t wait to see what the future holds. Wow, that sounds so pretentious.
