New UCAT Feature To Help With Timing

Most students would agree: by far the hardest part of UCAT is the timing. Very few students are able to complete every UCAT question within the time limits. In fact, every year in some subtests of the live UCAT, 1/5 of students run out of time to even make a random guess! Understanding of time management in UCAT is therefore essential. MedEntry makes this easy with personalised UCAT data analytics. After completing a UCAT exam, you will be provided with the following information: The time you spent on each UCAT questionThe average time spent on the UCAT question for those students...

Persisting Through Underwhelming Marks

Many of you may have started your preparation on MedEntry and found that you may not be achieving the scores you hoped for, and let me tell you, you’re not the only one! Many people at the start of their UCAT preparation lose confidence in themselves and can’t see themselves achieving the scores they need. I know this for a fact because I was one of those people not too long ago. When I first started my UCAT preparation with MedEntry I was doing quite poorly and that too for a significant period of time. When doing drills I was consistently...

WHY UCAT PRACTICE DOESN’T NECESSARILY MAKE PERFECT

In life, we are told that ‘practice makes perfect’. The more you practice a particular skill, whether it be playing the piano, swimming or writing essays, the better you become at it. So, in theory, it should be the same in UCAT – the more practice questions you do, the better you are at UCAT – right? Not necessarily. Just like any skill, to do well in UCAT you first need a basic understanding of what it is, what it tests and how to approach the various types of questions. Without this understanding, you may still be able to improve by...

Maximise each UCAT practice question (and your study time!)

So you’ve decided to spend x hours per week preparing for the UCAT. Well done on making a commitment! But it doesn’t end there. The next step is to squeeze as much as you can get out of those UCAT preparation hours. One way of doing this and making the questions work for you is to carefully review solutions. When going through UCAT practice questions, it’s very tempting to avoid reading the solutions for one reason or another. As someone who achieved 99th percentile in the UCAT, I’ll try to make a case for reading the solutions all the time.  ...

Making Friends with UCAT Practice

In the game of UCAT practice, consistency beats brilliance. It is important that we not wait until we have lots of motivation before we start practicing. Good UCAT skills come about in the context of practicing in a more routine and ordinary manner, rather than sporadic bursts of insight. The goal should be gaining meaningful and valuable UCAT skills every time you practice. Expecting anything more may create too much pressure and lead to debilitating blocks and limitations. To be successful at the UCAT, you need to develop UCAT practice as a practice or discipline. UCAT = Meditation? In this sense,...
