How To Choose The Best UCAT Prep Course


how to choose the best ucat prep course

UCAT is an extremely important, ‘high stakes’ test. That is, the results of UCAT have the potential to determine whether or not you will be a doctor. It makes sense that you should choose the best UCAT preparation course to give yourself the greatest chance of success.

UCAT courses vary considerably in quality. This blog outlines five key factors you should look for when choosing the best UCAT prep course.

1. The best UCAT preparation course is run by experts

When researching the best UCAT course, it is important to know who is behind the organisation. Surprisingly, many UCAT prep courses are run by laypeople with absolutely no medical knowledge, no formal teaching qualifications, and no understanding of the complex theory behind aptitude testing. These preparation courses have a very superficial understanding of UCAT and the strategies required to succeed.

MedEntry is the best UCAT course, and is run by a team of practicing senior doctors, academics and psychometricians. We are the experts in UCAT and medical entry.  

2. The best UCAT course provides quality preparation materials

It is a difficult and expensive process to create questions which accurately replicate the style, difficulty and subtleties of UCAT questions. Most UCAT preparation courses take a very basic approach to creating questions, which lead to poor quality or even misleading UCAT questions. Furthermore, most UCAT prep courses have only a cursory understanding of the theory and principles behind UCAT, and therefore the strategies offered are rudimentary.

MedEntry takes the process of UCAT question creation seriously, engaging subject matter experts, psychometricians and experienced item writers when creating questions. We provide in-depth guides, video guides and video solutions to show students exactly how to approach each type of question in UCAT, and impart psychological techniques for boosting UCAT performance.

3. The best UCAT preparation course has an accurate simulated online platform

Many studies have demonstrated that the most effective and efficient way to prepare for any test is to accurately replicate the whole testing experience. It is therefore vital that you prepare for UCAT using an online platform that looks, behaves and performs like the live UCAT. It should accurately simulate every element of the testing experience.

One reason MedEntry is the best UCAT prep course is because the online platform is the most accurate simulator of the live UCAT. It exactly matches the live UCAT, so sitting the live UCAT will just feel like another UCAT practice test!

4. The best UCAT course has a proven track record of success

There are many ‘newbies’ in UCAT preparation. When preparing for such an important test, it is vital that you choose the best UCAT prep: an organisation that has a proven track record of success.

MedEntry has been training students for entry into medicine for over 20 years. We have trained over 20 000 currently practicing doctors. Most current medical students and junior doctors across Australia, New Zealand and Ireland have been trained by MedEntry. There is a reason why the best students prepare with MedEntry! 

5. The best UCAT preparation course has outstanding reviews

Ultimately, it is easy to choose the best UCAT preparation course: simply look at its online reviews! If a UCAT prep course has hundreds of independent five star ratings on Google and Facebook, it is the best UCAT prep course you can choose.

MedEntry’s Sydney, Melbourne and Ireland offices have over 2000 reviews at a star rating of about 4.8+, far exceeding that of any university. It is common to see the following feedback: 'The best lecture I have ever attended'. In fact, we are so confident in the unbeaten quality of our teaching, philosophy and ethos that we offer this guarantee to you: find any educational institution with more and higher ratings on Google and Facebook than MedEntry, and we will offer our course for free!
