UCAT will take place in July 2019. However, there are a few things you can start doing now to enhance your UCAT performance. Tip 3 is to work on your speed. The questions in UCAT are not particularly challenging, and most students are be able to answer the majority of questions correctly if given sufficient time. However, UCAT is extremely time pressured, and many students are simply unable to answer the questions within the time limits.

UCAT Workshops: Why They Should Be Run By Doctors

With the inclusion of the Situational Judgement Test in UCAT, it is even more important that UCAT workshops are run by medical professionals. Situational Judgement questions require an intimate understanding of issues such as teamwork, professionalism, ethics and integrity within a medical context. Questions are based on real-world medical scenarios with which doctors will have had first-hand experience. Only practicing doctors have a detailed understanding of such issues, and the big picture thinking required to perform well. It is worth noting that Subject Matter Experts (SMEs) used when scoring Situational Judgement questions are medical professionals. There are other benefits to having...

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!

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...

It's Time to Plan Your UCAT Preparation

By finding this blog post, you have already realised that, despite what many people tell you, studying for the UCAT is possible. I was also sceptical prior to using MedEntry’s UCAT workshop.

The MedEntry resources will give you everything you need to succeed for the UCAT, and I will explain how to use them to your advantage. In terms of the online LMS, I started by reading the guides, and doing related drills intermittently; this helped...

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.  ...

Group versus individual study for UCAT

Should I prepare for the UCAT with friends or alone?  It’s a question many students ask themselves leading up to a major exam, including the UCAT. Although the answer will vary depending on personal preference, this article will endeavour to discuss some of the benefits and drawbacks of both group and individual preparation. For most, the answer lies somewhere between the two – ideal preparation involves a combination of both individual and group work. Tackling practice questions on your own is an essential part of preparation. In the exam, you won’t have a group of friends with which to discuss the...

UCAT Tip: Educated Guessing

UCAT Tip: Educated Guessing in the UCAT When sitting the UCAT students may face a difficult question that they can’t quite get their head around or they are running out of time and still have some questions they haven’t answered yet. Some people choose to leave the UCAT question blank. This is a problem because there is very little time in the UCAT exam to return to previous UCAT questions and UCAT candidates will often leave a UCAT question so that they can go back to it later but then run out of time.

UCAT test tips

Ignore these Two Voices in Your Head We want to warn you that during the test, two tiny invisible fairies will be sitting on your shoulders, whispering in your ears. You’ll hear only one of the fairies, and you won’t be sure which one it is until the test starts. One of the fairies whispers gleefully, “I can’t believe how easy this test is.” The other fairy whispers ominously, “This is by far the hardest test I’ve ever taken.” There aren’t really fairies whispering in your ears, of course, but we promise you that you will hear one of those two...

UCAT test tips from MedEntry UCAT Prep

Tips for the actual exam: MedEntry UCAT Course Tips Pace yourself as you go. If you find yourself losing focus in the last subtest think “finish strong” rather than “I’m almost out of here”. Don’t allow yourself to switch off until that final answer is filled in. Never give up until the computer screen closes!Don’t change your answers without good reason, only change them when you’ve reviewed the whole problem and discovered a mistake. For example, “this answer can’t be A, the last two were A” and “it can’t be this one, it’s too easy” are not good reasons to change your answer.Don’t...
