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...

The UCAT – A Test of Endurance

The UCAT is so commonly viewed as a test of intelligence and aptitude, that we forget how crucial it is to improve our mental endurance for this exam. In fact, the endurance required for the UCAT is much greater than that required for any end of year school exam. Not only is the UCAT as long as or longer than any school exam (2 hours), but the nature of each individual question requires much greater focus. This need for enhanced application to each question is due to our inability to draw upon a year’s worth of content and knowledge, as is...

The Truth about UCAT prep

As a customer, it is difficult to choose from various UCAT course providers, especially when outlandish claims are made through slick and deceptive marketing strategies. As in most cases, 'Word-of-mouth' recommendation is the best. Please ask around for the impressions of students who have attended a UCAT course. Quality of products Your performance in the UCAT will only improve if you practice on questions which simulate the real UCAT. Practicing on questions which are unrelated to those in the UCAT or questions that have a different structure to those in the UCAT may adversely affect your performance. It is like preparing for a Physics exam but finding at the exam...

Is the UCAT even relevant to medicine?

Sometimes it can feel like the UCAT has got nothing to do with being a doctor. It can feel like just another one of the oddly-shaped hoops one must jump through in the medical entry process. However, this mindset that the UCAT is just a barrier to doctor-hood can be demotivating and counterproductive. In this post, I’ll give some real life examples of how the UCAT relates to skills I’ve had to develop in medical school, and how UCAT preparation is related to, or perhaps even beneficial to, the study of medicine.

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,...

Preparation, Preparation, Preparation: the key for UCAT success.

UCAT: a multiple guess or multiple choice test? You choose.   A university lecturer of mine, once made the comment prior to us all about to sit an exam, that he would cry if we didn’t answer every question because: ‘guys, it’s a multiple choice paper, so even a monkey could get one in every four questions right’.  Although I’ve never personally seen a monkey sit the UCAT exam, statistically speaking, it was a fair point to make, and for the record: not one student failed that paper.   Why prepare for the UCAT or do UCAT preparation courses?

My friend got into Medicine without doing a UCAT course!

My friend got into Medicine without doing a UCAT course!   Many students who undergo training for UCAT do not admit it for several reasons (for example, it increases their competition).

If they had done our course, they would have obtained a higher score, say 99th percentile (and perhaps been awarded a scholarship to study medicine as well). Even those who may obtain...
