EducationGradReady was founded in 2010 by a group of University of Melbourne medical students. Our original aim was to help students in their GAMSAT (Graduate Australian Medical School Admissions Test) preparation. We had found existing GAMSAT courses to be overly didactic, inattentive to differing student needs, and lacking in online tools.
Using our experience in education and IT, and leveraging the expertise of former lecturers at University of Western Australia and University of Otago, we founded GradReady, an education provider that is in sync with evolving educational philosophies.
By the end of 2014, our first program – GAMSATReady - had become themost widely used GAMSAT preparation program with over 1000 studentseach year. Moreover, we were able to help our students achieve manymilestones, including an average rise in percentile ranking of 25 percentage points and 100% medical school admission rate for our 2014 InterviewReady students.
Subsequently, we asked ourselves - “can our tools and methods help to bring the same level of success to undergraduate medical students?” The answer was a resounding 'yes!'
In response, we created our second program – UMATReady – with the aim of bringing the same success stories to undergraduate medicine.
How is UMATReady Different?
We believe in the value of classroom interaction and learning through understanding and application rather than rote. We put basic concepts in video form, allowing our dedicated tutors to focus on teaching you how to apply what you learned, and to understand the reasoning behind difficult concepts. In addition, by spreading the material over 3 weeks, we give you the opportunity to reflect upon and digest the information - which is vital to effective learning.
A key to effective learning is knowing how to identify and work on your weaknesses. Unlike traditional paperback MCQ banks, our Online MCQ System tracks your performance and identifies your weaknesses. Then, using our Cross Referencing system, you can easily locate the appropriate material to help you in your trouble areas. Finally, our expert tutors will teach you a range of approaches and critical reasoning skills that get results.
EFFECTIVE ONLINE TOOLS
Our technology creates a smooth and integrated learning experience that is the first of its kind in Australia. Not only are you able to easily identify your weaknesses, you have all the specific resources - neatly organised and indexed -at your fingertips, whether it is specific videos, targeted MCQs, or tutor advice. Accessing what you need has never been this easy.

Our tools and methods have been proven to achieve results for even one of the most challenging exams a student will face – the medical school entrance exam.
The average GradReady student scored 63.1 and ranked in the 75th percentile of the 2015 March GAMSAT. The average GradReady student re-taking the GAMSAT improved from: Score: 59.3 to 64.3 Rank: 50th percentile to 80th percentile. The improvement remained statistically significant even when assessed using 99% confidence intervals.
We look to bring the same results to our UMAT students.
All tutors have scored in the top 5% of the UMAT, most have scored in the top 1% in
their subject of expertise.
