To effectively prepare for UCAT, it is essential that you understand your strengths and weaknesses, and that you track your progress as you work through UCAT resources. It is not enough to simply complete UCAT practice questions or practice exams; you also need feedback on how you have performed, and advice on where you should focus your future UCAT preparation efforts.
MedEntry makes this easy with a tool that helps you view detailed information about your UCAT progress, including percentile rankings and a breakdown of which question types you should focus on to boost your performance.
Accessing the Check Progress page
The UCAT Check Progress page can be accessed in the following places:
Click on the Exams or Drills progress bar on the home page of the LMS.
Click on the “Check My Progress link”, found on the UCAT Learning Curriculum homepage.
Data available on the Check Progress page
On the Check Progress page, you will find detailed data on your UCAT performance to date. This includes your overall UCAT performance, as well as your performance in each UCAT subtest and type of question.
The tool is split into three parts:
Tab 1 – Overview
Here you will find:
- Your total number of MedEntry UCAT trial exams completed
- Your total number of MedEntry UCAT practice drills completed
- A detailed overview of your performance in each UCAT subtest, broken down by question type. These results are based on your attempts at MedEntry practice exams and drills.
For example, the screenshot below demonstrates a student who has completed 8 Decision Making - Strongest Argument questions, answering three correctly.
Tab 2 – Exams
This tab displays data relating to your MedEntry UCAT practice exam attempts.
You will be provided with your UCAT percentile rankings overall for each practice exam, as well as percentile rankings for each individual UCAT subtest. This information is invaluable in tracking your progress and giving you an indication of how you are likely to perform on UCAT test day.
Note that in UCAT, scores are based on your performance compared to other students. This is why percentile rankings for UCAT are so useful.
Tab 3: Drills
Here you will find data relating to how many drills you have completed for each UCAT subtest, as well as your performance in each drill. You can filter drills by UCAT subtest.
This will help you plan your future UCAT preparation, and understand where you should focus your remaining preparation.
