Is It Too Late To Start Preparing For UCAT 2020

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!). The long answer is: it depends on how you prepare for UCAT. At this stage, it’s important to study smart. This involves being focussed, and preparing in ways that will make a difference to your UCAT performance. Trying to do as many UCAT practice exams as you can will take up a lot of your time, and may not be the most efficient way to prepare. You are also likely to be busy...

The 5 Biggest UCAT Myths

Myth #1: You can’t study for it People call the UCAT many different things. Is it an IQ test? A personality test? In reality, it is about applying skills you have developed to solve problems. People say: “you’ve either got it or you don’t,” but like any skill, UCAT technique can be practiced and honed. One of my close friends is one of the naturally brightest people I know. He believed that you couldn’t really get better at the UCAT. Unfortunately, this had consequences when he did not study and thus failed to meet the threshold for his desired course. My...

Want to be a doctor? Here’s 5 things you should know

1. There are A LOT of students in the same position as you It really is remarkable how many people want to study medicine. This is both good and bad news for you. The bad part is how small most medical cohorts are, which makes medical entry extremely competitive. Don’t let this weigh on your mind too much though, because you simply need to accept that there will be people with a better chance of getting in than you and people with a worse chance of getting in than you. The only aspect of this process under your control is how...

5 Tips for UCAT Success

The UCAT is not an easy exam. It is intense both when you prepare for it and when you undertake it. It requires every ounce of mental concentration and effort to do well, even more so, for me at least, than my HSC 4 Unit maths exam. However, you need not be worried about this: the conditions apply to everybody and what determines whether you will do well in UCAT is if you can perform better than your peers. Always remember that a large portion of students are going into UCAT without proper experience of questions or experience of the conditions...
