Let's see how our students think about us!
Teresa is a very friendly tutor and very knowledgeable about the admissions process. I got a lot done in a few hours as the deadline approached. She gave me a lot of great ideas in my personal essay that I wouldn't have thought of myself. I'd definitely recommend it to students looking for help with their college applications!
I always had difficulties with my studies, but Sunny didn't give up on me and helped me achieve an A* in IGCSE at age 9! He never looked down on me and did his best to support me during the exam.
I've been learning from Serene through my IGCSE and IB years, and I'm so grateful for her guidance! Serene has really helped me understand all the topics I've struggled with, from motors in Physics all the way up to stop me from pulling my hair out in HL Maths AA! Her meticulous and caring teaching truly helped me understand the concepts for exams, alongside many past paper questions and continuous help even outside the classroom! Thank you so much :D
Sunny's classes were really helpful. He managed to identify and improve my weakness. The tedious concepts were delivered in a comprehensive way. I was able to be clearer about the content after every class and eventually achieved an ideal grade. Now I'm studying at my dream university, and I would not have done that without his help.
I only consider Lancing school if I want to study in the UK. I am very grateful to Pivot Academics for helping me to get the best results!
When I decided to go to the UK, most of the schools have passed the deadline, and there are certain restrictions on where I can go to study, but after the Pivot Academics counsellor took over my case, they still tried their best to get me into the region and the top school. And finally, I was successfully admitted. My family and I were ecstatic. The counsellor would still pay attention to my study journey in the UK and maintain close contact. This kind of thorough care, It's hard to find elsewhere.
Most unique to Pivot is the wide network of mentors and students, meaning that for virtually any query, there is likely someone who has had a recent experience with the issue at hand. Pivot also holds frequent sessions spanning various aspects of the application process and provides a well-rounded approach to medical applications. Arrangement of work experience is also of great help to students, who may otherwise struggle to find the tailor-made work experience opportunities that Pivot offers.
In my opinion, the biggest strength that Pivot Medical Programme provides, and what distinguishes it from other programmes that support aspiring medical students, is the “whole-package” style, individualised support to the applicant. Applicants are followed through from their GCSEs, through A-levels, up until they get into medical school, so mentors have a full understanding of the applicant’s profile from academics, motivation, work experience, UCAT, BMAT, etc. and can therefore provide the right kind of support and guidance at the appropriate times as needed or as requested (e.g. when decisions have to be made on subject choice, or when deciding whether to take the UCAT/ BMAT or both). This also proves to be especially helpful in personal statement writing and university selection, as the mentors’ holistic understanding of the applicant allows them to provide better guidance when working with them on their personal statement; as well as choosing the right university to apply to, as all the strengths and weaknesses of the applicant’s profile are taken into account. For interview preparation, practice sessions are available on-request, which is extremely helpful as medical school interviews come closer, and the experienced mentors are able to provide realistic mock-interviews, as well as invaluable advice like “red-flag” mistakes to avoid and points to work on.
Pivot Medical Program mentoring by doctors who are very passionate about teaching aspiring medics, know the NHS very well, available anytime for advice and support. Regular interview training was extremely helpful!
The strengths of the Pivot Medical Programme include access to work experience with good variety in both primary and secondary care, personal statement coaching with tailored statements for different medical school admissions, and mock interviews, covering MMIs, interview techniques and professional development.
Over the past two years, Billy (Dr Leung) and Alex (Dr Man) have been excellent mentors for me and a tremendous inspiration to me. There is no doubt to say that their guidance has brought me further in life. I couldn’t recommend anyone better to have both as a guide and mentor.
The Pivot Medical programme helped massively with my medical school application, especially with interview training and constructing a good personal statement. All the mentors are passionate about helping students achieve their best with personalised feedback and support.
A very detailed and personalised medical programme which ensures everyone can receive holistic support in terms of their strengths and weaknesses. Personally, I really enjoyed the packed sessions with different mentors that cover all aspects of the selection process from preparing a personal statement to MMI interviews. Without the help of excellent standards, my application process could have been a lot more challenging.
The holistic support from the Pivot Medical Programme. I was able to receive advice on every aspect of the university application process from different mentors. Also, I was able to meet peers who are in the same process as me and form this support network.
