This paper is the second part of a dissertation, investigating the effect of coaching and online coaching on the result of the Flemish Medicine Admission Test (FMAT). The dissertation also examines the self-selection variables into coaching, as individual differences between coached and uncoached participants could potentially mask the coaching effect. Firstly, a brief introduction refreshes the main topics of the first paper. Then, the used method of research is discussed, with attention for the sample, the content of the admission test, the content of the questionnaire and the used variables. The next part displays the results of the statistical analyses. Finally, the discussion interprets the results through the initial hypotheses before stating a few limitations and attention points for further research.
