These percentiles compare your performance against other UCAT candidates who have completed the same UCAT practice exam.

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.

What can you do now to enhance your UCAT performance? Tip 2: Brush up on your maths skills

  UCAT will take place in July 2019. However, there are a few things you can start doing now to enhance your UCAT performance. Our second tip is to brush up on your maths skills. UCAT is not a maths test, it is a test of your reasoning skills. However, many of the questions in the Quantitative Reasoning and Decision Making subtests of UCAT require mathematical manipulations. Although you are provided with an on-screen calculator in UCAT, it is cumbersome and time consuming to use. It is much quicker to make calculations in your head, or on the noteboard you are...

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...

Is it too late to start preparing for the UCAT?

The short answer is no. Studying for the UCAT is possible and no matter how late you start, you will still be able to improve, just like with any other subject. The long answer is: it depends on how much time you put in and how effectively you do it. At this stage, it’s important to study SMART. Trying to do as many UCAT papers as you can will also take up a lot of your time.

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...

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...

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...

Why practice exams are the best UCAT preparation

Be under no illusions: the UCAT is the single hardest and most important test you will ever sit. This is a scary (and for some maybe terrifying) thought. So what can you do to make it less daunting? The answer may seem counter-intuitive: the best way to make UCAT seem do-able is to face it over, and over, and over again. How? By completing high quality, full length trial exams under timed exam conditions. UCAT is scary because it is so different to any other test you have done in school – it is much harder, longer and much more time-pressured,...

IS THE UCAT STRESSING YOU OUT? HOW TO USE STRESS TO YOUR ADVANTAGE
