Getting the most from your UCAT practice exams


Have you completed a full length UCAT practice exam yet?

If not, it is essential that you do! It is the only way to understand the extreme time pressures placed on you during the UCAT. It is essential that you develop and practice strategies that will help you answer questions accurately within UCAT time limits.

Here are three tips to getting the most from your UCAT practice exams.


1.  Complete UCAT exams under simulated conditions

This is absolutely essential. On UCAT test day, you will be required to sit in front of a computer screen for two hours, without a break, answering extremely difficult questions under time pressure. This isn’t easy! However, if you’ve done it ten times before, it won’t feel so alien.

So, treat each UCAT practice exam as the real thing. Lock yourself in your room, no interruptions, no drinks or snacks. Ensure you are practicing on a UCAT computer platform that exactly simulates the real UCAT, like that provided by MedEntry.

Most importantly, stick to the UCAT time limits! Doing so will be scary the first time, but it is the only way to develop the skills needed to succeed. Remember that with MedEntry, you can review all UCAT practice exams as many times as you wish.


2.  Retry your incorrect UCAT questions

Retrying your incorrectly answered UCAT questions is an extremely efficient and productive way to prepare for UCAT.

There is a reason why you got a UCAT question wrong: perhaps you made a reasoning error, perhaps you ran out of time to answer the question, or perhaps you fell for tempting a wrong answer trap. Whatever the reason, re-trying that UCAT question will help you acquire strategies to ensure you do not get it wrong on UCAT test day.

Retrying your UCAT questions is the best way to practice, as you will be working on your weaknesses. MedEntry allows you to re-try questions in UCAT practice exams up to four times.


3.  Review and reflect on the UCAT exam

The best way to improve in UCAT is not to simply complete practice exam after practice exam. You need to carefully review all UCAT questions, including those questions you got right (maybe you got it right for the wrong reasons or because you guessed!). If you got a UCAT question wrong, reflect on why and how you can prevent yourself from making the same mistake on UCAT test day.

Also reflect on the whole experience of sitting a UCAT exam. What went right and what went wrong? How can you boost your performance the next time you sit a UCAT exam?

So what are you waiting for? Get started with those UCAT practice exams!
