Your time would be much better spent focussing on understanding what was taught, rather than attending additional tutorials. These
additional tutorials create more busy work (i.e. listening to someone else) and detract from refective work (i.e. actual study, active
learning and thinking and making sense).

'Testimonials provided by such companies are typically from people whose applications to medicine were successful (and probably
would have been anyway even if they did not support these extra tutorials). What about all the other students who paid to attend these
sessions but never got anywhere? Do their testimonials ever make it to the websites?
These companies have no liability if they teach you the wrong information / ofer you poor advice.
