The Story So Far...

Ali Abdaal

Founder of 6med and Chief Ninja

Our story begins with Ali Abdaal and his team at 6med (you may have heard of them). Built from a desire to provide affordable but effective support for medical school applicants, 6med was born in 2013 by a team of driven Oxbridge medics.

We expected to get ~20 students in our first summer, but we ran 5 sold-out courses across the south of England. Apparently we did something right as we had parents ringing us every night asking for spaces. It was impossible to keep up with demand so we started thinking… 🧠 🧠 🧠

“How we can provide the same, high-quality support for a low cost for the UCAT and BMAT…?”

The answer was BMAT.Ninja and UCAT.Ninja, a pair of question banks designed to provide no-nonense tutorials and access to tons of practice questions, alongside an accurate exam simulator. We first launched these question banks in 2016.

On release, both of these platforms were a roaring success and helped 1000s of students each year, instead of the 100s we were able to help through our physical courses. To date, 2/3 BMAT applicants use BMAT.Ninja and UCAT.Ninja has 1000s of users each year! 😀

But why Ninjas? Ninjas embody the key qualities sought after in aspiring medical professionals. Ninjas symbolize skill, agility, and precision, aligning perfectly with the attributes required for success in medicine. 

So here we are now – seven years later!

We still focus on the UCAT and BMAT exams, but have since expanded over to other admissions tests from Medicine to Maths to Law!

It’s free to register, and incredibly cheap to upgrade for full access. Hopefully, we see you on a ward round soon! 🏥

The UCAT.Ninja platform is split into three distinct areas:

The Training Temple is home to our collections of expert tutorials. Each Ninja has its own specially made syllabus covering everything you need to know about the exam format and all the required knowledge within the exam specification. 


In the Practice Dojo, you can take on practice questions, each designed by an expert to mimic the questions you’ll find in the actual exam. Every question also comes with a worked solution that explains the answers if you get stuck.


Lastly, you’ll be able to practice everything you’ve learnt in the Exam Arena! Take on a full mock exam paper in realistic exam conditions, including all of the official time limits. When you’re done you’ll get an automatic and accurate score!
