Getting Started with the Online Learning Platform
The Online Learning Platform contains all of your UCAT resources (full length practice exams, practice questions, video guides, interview resources, university admissions information and much more).
Login and click the ‘Launch Online Platform’ button.
When you first login, you will be asked to read and agree to some terms and conditions. You will also be asked if you would like to take a tour of the platform (we suggest that you do, so you know where to find important learning resources).
4 tips to get the most from the Online Learning Platform
1. Understand what is available to you
As a MedEntry student, you have access to a plethora of resources. Please watch this brief video which will take you through the most important ones:
2. Plan your preparation
We know from experience that the highest performers in UCAT plan their preparation. We suggest you use the MedEntry study planner and associated guide (in the ‘Plan’ section of the online platform) to create a personalised study plan for UCAT. Prepare for UCAT regularly, as distributed practice is important.
3. Focus on your weaknesses
We suggest completing a full length practice exam under timed conditions early in your preparation so you gain an understanding of your strengths and weaknesses. From there, you can improve in your weakest subtests and question types by reviewing learning modules, using the question bank, and practicing with the skills trainers. The online platform will provide you with feedback to help you target your weak areas.
4. Simulate the UCAT test experience
UCAT is a computer-based test. In the live UCAT, you will have access to a desktop computer, keyboard and mouse. If you do not have this equipment, we suggest that you consider purchasing a keyboard/mouse/numberpad that you can plug into your laptop. In the live UCAT you will also have access to a Noteboard and marker pen (students attending a workshop will receive one of these). Simulating the live UCAT as closely as possible in your preparation will give you the best chance of success on test day.
