UCAT Tip: Educated Guessing

UCAT Tip: Educated Guessing in the UCATWhen 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.

The best thing to do when faced with UCAT questions...

UCAT test tips

Ignore these Two Voices in Your HeadWe 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 messages. Whichever voice...

It’s a good idea to dress in layers so that if the room is too hot you can take...

UCAT : The day of the UCAT test

Waking Up on the UCAT Test MorningWhen you wake up, consider taking a shower or doing some brief calisthenics or other exercise to get the blood flowing—especially to your groggy brain! If someone is taking you to the test site, make sure he or she is up, too.Eat a normal breakfast, but not too much or you’ll be groggy. If you’re used to consuming some form of caffeine—tea, coffee, cola—then doing so is probably a good idea this morning. But only if you’re used to caffeine; if you’re not, now is not the morning to start.Make sure you have everything with...

UCAT Preparation: Getting into the Right Frame of Mind

At the end of a season and leading up to the championship, athletes go through a “tapering phase” to make sure they perform at their peak when it counts. In a sense you’ve been a mental athlete, and you want to make sure that you perform at your peak when it counts: on the actual UCAT.For you, tapering consists of scaling back gradually the amount of preparation you’ve been doing so you can give your mind a chance to rest and rev up your motivation. During this week you should do much less work, but of a much higher quality. Instead...

How to Guess in UCAT

When You Need to Guess in UCAT, Beware of Your HunchesYou know that whenever you can make a quick guess on a question to avoid leaving it blank, you should take the shot. The key word here is quick; you can always afford to guess, but you can never afford to waste time.So, how should you guess? Let’s be clear about something: guessing does not mean selecting a choice at random. But it also doesn’t mean selecting the choice that seems to be right. Guessing means selecting the choice that has the greatest chance of being right, regardless of whether that choice “looks right”...

UCAT Tips: Learn to make intelligent guesses when necessary

Another tip in scoring well in the UCAT test is to try to eliminate as many responses as you can. Here’s why it is important to eliminate at least some choices when you’re guessing. If you get to a question and you’re not sure of the answer, of course you’ll have to guess. Whether you’re guessing among all four choices or you’ve eliminated a couple of obvious wrong answers, it still feels the same. But this is one time when you shouldn’t listen to your feelings.Let’s say that two test-takers each encounter questions they aren’t sure about during the exam. One of the...

UCAT test tips from MedEntry UCAT Prep

Tips for the actual exam: MedEntry UCAT Course TipsPace 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 waste...

Time management in UCAT

Timing is perhaps the most stress-inducing factor of the UCAT exam. If the UCAT were at take-home test, you would all score well. Managing time is the key. Most of your MedEntry UCAT practice will include timed sections, allowing you to become more familiar and comfortable with the pacing of the exam.The UCAT is not a test of intelligence. Although it is used as a predictor for success in medical schools, it isn’t infallible. A poor performance does not necessarily reflect ineptitude nor does a poor score mean you should not apply to the medical school. It may merely limit your choices.You need to maximise...
