Why You Should Start Preparing For UCAT Now

For those in year 11, UCAT may seem like a distant hurdle. However, if you want to be a doctor, UCAT is vitally important. In many cases it is as important, if not more important, than your high school score in determining entry into medicine! Furthermore, UCAT is very different to standard knowledge-based exams that you have encountered at school or university. UCAT is an aptitude test which assesses your skills. Skills are best developed over time, with a little bit of practice on a regular basis. In fact, it is very difficult to learn a skill by cramming. For example, could...

Why are medical interviews so important?

Medical interviews are perhaps the most underestimated part of the medical entry admissions process.

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 which are specifically...

Furthermore, many posts on such forums are made by UCAT companies posing as students and spruiking their own courses. It is important for students to consider only trusted reviews (for example, Google and Facebook) when researching potential UCAT...
