The 5 Biggest UCAT Myths

Myth #1: You can’t study for it People call the UCAT many different things. Is it an IQ test? A personality test? In reality, it is about applying skills you have developed to solve problems.

He believed that you couldn’t really get better at the UCAT. Unfortunately, this had consequences when he did not study and thus failed to meet the threshold for his desired course. My...
