If you wish to study medicine or dentistry, chances are you need to sit UCAT. UCAT is an important component of entry into most medical and dental degrees across Australia and New Zealand. UCAT is a very difficult, time-pressured test, very unlike school or university exams. Quality UCAT preparation, and choosing the best UCAT preparation course, is therefore essential.
It can be difficult to choose the best UCAT preparation course, when there are so many available. Here are some factors to consider:
1. Who runs the UCAT preparation course?
Unfortunately almost all UCAT preparation courses are run by individuals with few or no relevant qualifications. Their websites and marketing may be slick, but there is very little substance. The implications are that the UCAT preparation courses are poor quality, or even worse, provide misleading advice.
It is important to choose a UCAT preparation course run by doctors and academics with experience in psychometric testing. MedEntry’s UCAT preparation team is made up of doctors who are leading in their field, and have excelled throughout their undergraduate and postgraduate training. They are active in medical and educational research, and lecture at leading medical universities. No other UCAT preparation course can make such a claim.
2. Does the organisation specialise in UCAT preparation?
Many organisations provide UCAT preparation as only one part of their service to students. They also provide tutoring, and/or preparation for other entry tests. How can a company provide high quality UCAT preparation when they are focused on other projects?
It is important to choose an organisation that focuses solely on UCAT preparation and medical entry. All of MedEntry’s extensive staff and resources are focussed on one thing: providing you with quality UCAT preparation.
3. Does the organisation offer a UCAT workshop?
Many UCAT preparation organisations do not offer a UCAT workshop. Even worse, some offer boring, time-wasting content run by unqualified people or students.
UCAT workshops are important for many reasons. They are the most effective and efficient way to prepare for UCAT. They cover all of the important strategies and techniques for optimising UCAT performance. When run effectively, they can give you a significant advantage over other candidates.
4. Does the organisation have a large number of independent reviews?
Most UCAT preparation companies have few reviews, or reviews that are curated by their organisation rather than independent. No other UCAT preparation organisation has as many or as high reviews as MedEntry. Our reviews are better than (so-called) leading universities! In fact, MedEntry has a quality guarantee: find any educational organisation with more or higher reviews than MedEntry, and we will offer our UCAT preparation course free!
5. Does the organisation offer an accurate and up to date online simulated platform?
UCAT is a dynamic test. Unfortunately most UCAT preparation organisations do not bother updating their materials to reflect the changes. MedEntry forensically analyses the live UCAT and implements changes immediately onto our online UCAT platform. Our UCAT simulated platform exactly replicates the live UCAT.
All UCAT questions are quality controlled using item response theory and principles of psychometric testing.
