UCAT CALCULATOR: HOW DO THE UCAT PRACTICE EXAMS DIFFER FROM THE LIVE UCAT?

UCAT Speed Reading Trainer Launched!

When sitting the UCAT, you will have an average of less than 30 seconds to answer each question. Therefore, increasing your reading speed is an essential skill to develop, particularly in the Verbal Reasoning subtest. Two common causes of slow reading include subvocalization (or reading words aloud in your mind) and reading each word individually. To read quickly, you need to avoid subvocalization, and engage in ‘chunking’, which involves reading multiple words simultaneously. MedEntry has developed an exclusive UCAT Speed Reading trainer that helps you to reduce subvocalization, helps you ‘chunk’ and significantly increases your reading speed.You can set the number of words...

This feature can be used in all UCAT Drills and UCAT Subtest Mocks.The Timing Trainer displays how long you have spent on a UCAT question (or unit of questions), in comparison to the recommended...
