Is the MedEntry UCAT workshop worth it?
This is a question which can be answered from various perspectives or angles: emotional arguments, and rational arguments using decision making theory.
Decision making theory
Give it your best shot!
Research on ‘What we regret’ shows that 54% of people regret education/career related matters (e.g. that they didn’t try hard enough). Compare this with the next most common regret: partner choice/romance which is only 15%! Do you want to be one of those 54% of people? Doing MedEntry course will be worth it, because it is less likely you will have such a regret.
Don't settle for second best
Some students engage in poor quality UCAT prep (by tutors, school based coaching, online, or 'free taster' courses) and think it is sufficient. Remember that if a service is free, you are not the customer but the product! Such students also assume that the MedEntry workshop will be similar. Nothing could be further from the truth. There is massive difference in outcomes of professional services (legal, accounting, health etc) depending on the service provider you choose. The improvement could be 0% to as high as 100%. The same is with educational services, in particular UCAT Prep. Invest in your future with a Trusted UCAT Prep institution.
There are several reasons why the UCAT Official site will not provide you with the full range of questions that are likely to appear, and will not advise you on efficient strategies for solving them. One reason is that the more you know, the harder their job becomes in creating difficult questions with a high point biserial coefficient.
The ‘UCAT Consortium’ recommends using up-to-date Prep material: books will not be up-to-date, wheres as online resources can be and are updated by MedEntry constantly and become live immediately.
