MedEntry's online resources are delivered via the Learning Management System (LMS), which uses the latest learning technology tailored to the UCAT. The LMS is far superior to printed 'books'.
There are a number of reasons why MedEntry chooses to provide preparation materials via an online based system:
You will not be able to print the materials and practice exams on the LMS for two main reasons.
Firstly, providing printed materials would mean that certain invaluable features of the LMS would not be available. As UCAT is a computer-based test, it is essential that you practice answering questions on this platform. Answering questions on paper is not an effective or efficient way to prepare for UCAT. Furthermore, key features such as percentile rankings, detailed feedback, timing information etc. would not be available if materials were printable.
Secondly, MedEntry has been compelled to make materials unprintable due to several breaches of copyright law. The breaches of MedEntry's copyright resulted in MedEntry suing the offenders in the Federal Court (and winning).
You can attempt each practice exam only once, to ensure feedback provided is reliable and accurate. However, you can re-attempt questions you answered incorrectly up to four times. Also, you can review all questions, answers and worked solutions as many times as you wish.
You can attempt all drills, practice questions and other resources as many times as you like.
You can enrol in MedEntry at any time, and in any year of schooling or university. Your enrolment is valid from the date that payment is made until the end of the date of UCAT (please see 'How long do I have access to the LMS for?' for more information).
Note that the earlier you enrol, the earlier you gain access to all your materials and the longer you will be able to prepare. Earlier enrolment also gives you greater choice of workshop dates.
However, if you are focussed and willing to work hard, you can improve your performance in the UCAT even if you enrol in MedEntry's UCAT preparation package very close to the UCAT test period.
The UCAT Consortium do however limit when you can register to sit the live UCAT. Students must be in their final year of schooling or older to be able to sit the exam.
If you are a student who is not in your final year of school, and you would like access for multiple years, please visit our customised Multiple Year Packages page to get access to discounted extended access all the way up until your UCAT test.
If you purchase a standard UCAT package (i.e not through the link above), you will have unlimited access to the LMS until the end of of the next UCAT testing window (July each year). At this time, access to the UCAT resources will be suspended. You will continue to have access to the Interview and University Admissions resources until after the admissions process (in January of the year following the UCAT test).
The MedEntry Team has extensive interview expertise and knowledge of the types of questions likely to arise at each university, which we use to provide you with focussed training.
Our interview guide comes with all of our packages, or can be purchased separately. It is packed with information on interview technique, common themes in health science interviews and how to tackle specific questions that will be asked.
Students attending a MedEntry UCAT workshop will have an afternoon of interview preparation to get them started. Remember, interviews cannot be 'crammed' for; you need to start thinking about them and developing skills early.
MedEntry also offers Interview Training Sessions that are tailored to specific universities and courses, since each university has a unique interview style and set of questions. The session is a day-long program facilitated by an expert. It covers interview technique, specific questions likely to arise and strategies that can be used to answer them, as well as mock interviews.
South Koreans spend 12% of their disposable income on coaching (equivalent to about $8000 per year in NZ). The expense of educating children for "the test" is one reason why South Korean women give birth to so few of them resulting in lowest fertility rate in the OECD (The Economist, 26/10/13, page 14). The proportion of income spent on coaching for tests in NZ, is very small compared to other countries.
Please note that MedEntry offers several discounts.
If you have not previously been able to access the LMS, please see how to disable some of the most commonly used popup blockers. Please only send an email to MedEntry AFTER you have tried the detailed instructions in the PDF.
Very occasionally, technical problems with the website and LMS may arise. Usually these problems resolve within a couple of hours. If you are unable to log into the LMS, but have previously been able to, please try logging in again after about an hour. If it is still not working, please contact us and we will endeavour to fix the problem as soon as possible.
The best way to access the LMS from your phone is to use the new MedEntry Smartphone App, compatible with all iOS and android devices.
Through the app you will be able to access all the drills, guides and forums found on the LMS.
In order for your LMS progress to sync between the app and the desktop LMS, please launch the LMS through your browser first and accept our terms and conditions.
