Timed Conditions Feedback toggle

When ­­­completing any Exam, Subtest Mock or Drill on the MedEntry LMS, you are presented with heaps of instant feedback, including the portion of students who chose each multiple choice option:   MedEntry has added a new feature – allowing you to toggle the popularity by whether or not the Exam/Subtest Mock/Drill was completed under timed conditions:   Note: these popularity bars only show the options chosen in your first attempt at a certain question. This is to prevent weighting towards correct answers due to subsequent attempts.

IMPROVE YOUR UCAT TIMING WITH MEDENTRY’S UCAT TIMING TRAINER

Timing is of the essence in UCAT. If you were given sufficient time to answer UCAT questions, the majority of students would perform very well.

The Timing Trainer displays how long you have spent on a UCAT question (or unit of questions), in comparison to...
