But don't just take our word for it, check out the hundreds of glowing Google and Facebook reviews of our workshops posted by our happy and successful students. We have more and higher ratings than every university in Australia! MedEntry's global offices have over 3000 reviews at a star rating of 4.9+, far exceeding that of any university. It is common to hear the following feedback: 'The best lecture I have ever attended'.
Three of the main benefits of the MedEntry workshop are:
The study guides on the online LMS (Learning Management System) do provide detailed approaches to different UCAT question types, but it is always more effective to be taught this information than simply to work through it yourself – after all, according to the psychiatrist William Glasser, we learn 10% of what we read, but 50% of what we see and hear!
The UCAT workshop highlights what kind of approaches to questions are the most important, and what types of UCAT questions are the most common. This allows you to make the most of all the resources provided by MedEntry, and perform as well as possible on the UCAT. In evaluations, MedEntry students say that they either did not use the resources on the LMS, or did not know how to efficiently and effectively use them, until they attended a MedEntry UCAT Preparation Workshop.
Additionally, some inside knowledge and information that is not available elsewhere is provided at the UCAT workshop. You will also find that many of the skills that you learn at the UCAT workshop are transferrable, and useful for school and university study.
Attending a MedEntry UCAT Preparation Workshop provides motivation to perform well on the UCAT, as it can make the whole UCAT process feel clearer and more real.
You will also meet fellow students with similar interests and passions. This is a fantastic opportunity to develop your thinking skills and to form new friendships and study groups, as well as being a great source of motivation.
Attending the MedEntry UCAT Workshop and the MedEntry weekly classes for UCAT is a unique opportunity for many reasons. Never before would you have attended a class where your peers are from all over Australia, New Zealand and the UK. This is also the only opportunity for you to check out your competition: motivated and able students from all over Australia & NZ. Remember that your scores on the live UCAT will be compared with this cohort.
Additionally, you will hear from current medical students about how they used MedEntry to obtain excellent scores on the UCAT, as well as what to expect from studying at university. It is an invaluable opportunity to hear first-hand tips from people who have gone through it all before, and to be able to ask any burning questions you might have about the UCAT or university!
The course aims to demonstrate the best principles and strategies needed to succeed in the UCAT. Students attending the workshop attempt short mini-tests in each UCAT section to give the students hands-on experience and allow the lecturer to clearly demonstrate the application of speed and accuracy techniques to each type of question found in the UCAT.
Further benefits of the MedEntry UCAT workshop include:
Attending a MedEntry UCAT Preparation Workshop is an invaluable opportunity that will allow you to achieve your best possible score on the UCAT.
A timetable is available for the MedEntry UCAT Workshop.
Starting and finishing times are subject to change so you should refer to the email that is sent to you before your UCAT course for exact times.
The course aims to maximise the amount of time demonstrating principles, techniques and strategies to tackle the UCAT questions, and how best to use the online platform for UCAT Preparation. Students attending the workshop will therefore attempt a short Mock UCAT so that the lecturer can demonstrate techniques to optimise speed and accuracy.
A couple of days prior to your workshop, you will receive an email with details that outline the start/end times of your workshop.
You can find a preliminary timetable here (Note that timings are subject to change):
To find out which Workshop you are enrolled in, please follow these steps:
If a workshop is shown as "Full" and you feel that is the only workshop that you can attend due to other commitments, please enrol in another "Open" workshop and email us with a request to transfer you to the workshop shown as "Full".
We will make every effort to ensure that your request is accommodated.
Yes, you can change the date of your Workshop, as long as the Workshop you would like to move into is not full.
In order to change the workshop that you are enrolled in to a different workshop, please follow these steps:
Note: once a workshop has started, you will no longer be able to change your booking. If you are unable to attend, please contact us and we will move your booking to a more suitable date.
Please do not panic. There is no need to phone us either.
Please simply send an email letting us know which workshop you would like to attend instead, and we will arrange it for you.
Similarly, if you are running late, there is no need to call. Just show up when you can and see the Lecturer during the next break.
Some students feel that they need to attend the workshop before they begin the work on the Online Platform.
This is generally not a good idea.
To gain the most from the workshop, we recommend that you complete some work on the Online Platform first (including completing 1-2 full length practice exams).
However, if you are in younger year levels, you would like to gain a general insight into UCAT or would like motivation, attending a workshop first may be suitable.
