Questions
Questions are kind of our speciality here at QUPI! See below for the most common questions medical students ask us about our platform:

How Qupi Helps You Pass Your Exams

Does QUPI Help me prepare for the United States Medical Licensing Examination (USMLE)?

Of course! We know that for American medical students, the USMLE is the big one. We’ve taken great care to select questions that are specifically relevant for this exam, not only in terms of the content, but also in terms of the style of question that you’ll be asked. This means that when the big day of your exam comes, thanks to QUPI you’ll already be familiar with the style, and will be able to tackle the USML with confidence.

Does QUPI Cover the Medical College Admission Test (MCAT)?

QUPI has questions covering all levels of medical education, from before you enter medical school right up until you take your final licensing exam. Most QUPI users are already at medical school, however many students believe in getting the best possible preparation right from the start. If you’re studying for the MCAT, you’ll find QUPI a useful and relevant tool to give you the knowledge and confidence you need to pass.

Does QUPI Cover the Medical Council of Canada Qualifying Examination MCCQE?

If you want to practice medicine in Canada, you’re going to need to practice the MCCQE. While there are unique aspects to this exam, the core competencies required by the licensing board overlap to a large extent with America’s USML and Britain’s PLAB/MLA exams. QUPI is a results focused platform, meaning we take into account the requirements of these exams so the questions that you are practicing are directly relevant in both content and style

Does QUPI Cover the UK’s Professional and Linguistic Assessments Board (PLAB) Medical Licensing Exam?

Yes! QUPI has many users in the United Kingdom, and the British licensing requirements are constantly taken into account as we are curating and updating our library of 10,000 practice questions. With one of our original founders from Edinburgh and members of our advisory board from across Europe, we are constantly tapped into developments in the world of medical exams, and make it our priority to ensure that our practice questions give you what you need to practice your medical knowledge and tackle the exams with confidence.

Does QUPI Cover Exams for Other Countries and Licensing Boards?

The majority of QUPI users are based in the United States, Canada, Europe and the United Kingdom, however we have members of our advisory board who have studied medicine across the globe, broadening our relevance and base of knowledge to regions as diverse as the Caribbean Islands, India and China. While requirements for specific exams do vary, medical core competencies broadly remain the same worldwide. After all, a medical fact is a medical fact, regardless of whether you’re in Seattle or Shanghai! Using QUPI, you will be able to practice your medical knowledge in a fun and compelling environment, giving you confidence for your exams.

Where Does QUPI Source Its Questions From?

To give you the most up to date and relevant practice questions, we gather our content from a wide range of difference sources. This includes our large team of advisors which is comprised of both qualifying doctors from around the world, as well as medical students who are still undergoing their studies. This combinations combines both the authority of doctors who have already qualified, with the “in the trenches” relevance of medical students who know exactly what is or is not useful for your studies. We also incorporate user submitted questions into our database, pending review from our expert panel. This means that QUPI’s users around the world contribute to our question bank and keep it constantly up to date and growing organically.

What Medical Subjects/Disciplines Does QUPI Cover?

In most countries, qualifying as a doctor requires you to display competence in 12 core medical disciplines, which include: Anatomy, Biochemistry, Behavioral Science, Pharmacology, Histology, Immunology, Microbiology, Neurology, Physiology, Pharmacology, Pathology & Pathophysiology. QUPI has hundreds of unique questions covering each of these 12 topics, specifically calibrated based on the kinds of questions that normally come up in medical licensing exams such as the USMLE.

What Other Resources Does QUPI Provide to Help Me Pass My Exams?

QUPI’s main feature is our carefully curated and constantly updated question bank. With over 10,000 practice questions, you’ll find it easy and fun to practice your medical knowledge – all you need is a computer and an internet connection! But QUPI is not just a platform, we’re an international community of medical students and doctors passionate about medical education. With our blog, newsletter and educational videos we aim to demystify medical knowledge and give anyone with the passion and drive the resources they need to become a doctor.

Is QUPI Affiliated with any Medical Universities?
