What Our Users Think


Shiken is awesome! Your site helped me ace my med school exams and I've now started to create my own questions as an examiner to share with my friends taking the exams next year.

Dr Jack Hughes
Foundation Year Doctor

Learning using Shiken is amazing the analytics really helped me to see what I was avoiding revising and helped me stay focused. I'm not revising for an exam at present but still use the platform to stay up to date.

Personalised Learning

Prior to finding Shiken we were looking at creating our own question software which would have been expensive and lacked many of the great features of Shiken. Excited to see what features are released next!
