5 Tips for UCAT Abstract Reasoning

Struggling with UCAT Abstract Reasoning questions? Check out this blog which outlines 5 top tips. 1.  Identify the pattern first When you are first starting out with Abstract Reasoning UCAT questions, it can be tempting to focus on the test shape and try to ‘match’ it to the sets. This wastes valuable time and is unlikely to lead you to the correct answer. Instead, start by examining the sets and looking for a pattern. Once you have identified the pattern, it will be easy to determine which set the test shape fits into.  2.  Choose your own perspective Some questions are...

Is UCAT getting more competitive? Will UCAT 2021 be even harder?

The UCAT score required for a given percentile has gone up in 2020 compared to 2019. For example, last year a score of 2850 translated to 90th UCAT percentile whereas a score of 2920 was required for the same UCAT percentile ranking in 2020. This is in spite of a small drop in the total number of students sitting UCAT. There are many reasons which contributed to this increase. They include a better prepared cohort of students due to a better knowledge of the UCAT, and Pearson Vue underestimating the level of preparedness of the candidates sitting UCAT this year.  Does...

UCAT ANZ 2020: A CANDIDATE SHARES HIS EXPERIENCE

Arrival Arriving at the UCAT test centre was a vastly different experience to arriving at a normal school exam. There was no congregation of students or any prominent signs explaining where to go. My UCAT testing centre was in the Melbourne CBD – at a normally busy office building which was completely deserted due to the current COVID-19 (coronavirus) pandemic. Due to building security, I could not use the elevator. After several stressful minutes of walking around (during which time I thought I was at the wrong place), I found a small sign displaying a phone number that I had to...

UCAT ANZ 2020: MY UCAT TEST DAY EXPERIENCE

Arrival and registration I took the UCAT exam at a Pearson VUE centre in Melbourne. I arrived about 25 minutes before my scheduled UCAT start time. At the door I was turned around and told to read the instructions outside the door concerning COVID-19 and UCAT. Once I made it in through the door, I was immediately told to sanitise my hands using the handwash inside the door before grabbing a number. Having done this, I was told to sit in one of the nine socially spaced chairs for people waiting for UCAT registration. I was provided with a copy of the...

Top 5 Under-Rated UCAT Preparation Strategies

1. Learn how to speed-read Not enough students are working on improving their speed reading. There are a lot of resources out there that can help you with this and I highly recommend delving into some of these (such as MedEntry’s UCAT Speed Reading trainer). The major problem I see time and time again is that in their UCAT preparation, students try to learn how to speed-read but do not end up doing so efficiently. They either fail to absorb content and miss key details or do not read at a particularly fast rate. This UCAT strategy is pertinent to the...
