Planning time for UCAT preparation

A very common question asked by aspiring medical students is “ How do you balance your school work and UCAT practice?”  Given that UCAT can be equally or even more important than ATAR in the medical school selection process, it is crucial that students devote sufficient time in preparing for the UCAT, without neglecting their high school or university. The key to finding this balance is planning your time. Many students attempt to fit in UCAT study in their ‘spare time’, which is hard to find the final year of schooling. It is more productive to set aside blocks of time...

Is It Too Late To Start Preparing For UCAT 2019

The short answer is: no. Improving your performance in UCAT is possible, no matter how late you start (unless you start preparing the night before UCAT, of course!).

Mind games: motivation for UCAT study.

Yes, we’d all rather be on Facebook or YouTube, or twitter, or asos, but before you throw your hands up in exasperated defeat and open another tab in your internet browser, consider this…    If you do well in the UCAT exam, you will only have to sit it once. It’s 2 hours of your time which can open the door to a lifelong, rewarding and satisfying career in medicine and/or the health sciences.  If you do not study for the UCAT, you may have to re-sit it or be forced find alternative pathways to reach your health career goal. This...

MAKING TIME FOR UCAT: EAT THAT FROG!

Eat a live frog first thing in the morning and nothing worse will happen to you the rest of the day. – Mark Twain Brian Tracy’s 5 minute YouTube video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FKOMTZ7PPLg discusses a time management strategy that has changed many people’s lives (including mine!). It discusses time management in the context of the workplace, but the strategy is applicable to UCAT and high school/university study too. This blog summarises the key points.  As Mark Twain said, if the first thing you do in the morning is to eat a live frog, you’ll have the satisfaction of knowing that’s probably the worst...
