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,...

Why are medical interviews so important?

Medical interviews are perhaps the most underestimated part of the medical entry admissions process. Many students do not prepare for them, either because they do not recognise the importance of medical interviews, or do not understand how difficult they are. At many universities, medical interviews are worth as much, if not more than your high school / university performance and your UCAT! For example: The Adelaide University medical interview, Curtin University medical interview and University of Western Australia medical interview are all worth 40% of the admissions criteria The Monash University medical interview is worth 33% of the admissions criteria The...

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...

Bonded Medical Program Changes

Changes have been made to the Bonded Medical Program, which will affect students applying to study medicine in 2020 and onwards. The key change involves graduates needing to work in rural or remote areas for three years, rather than the previous one year. The purpose of Bonded Medical Programs is to meet the demand for doctors in areas which have workforce shortages, particularly rural and remote areas of Australia. The Government provides students with a Commonwealth supported medical place in return for a commitment to work in areas of need for a specified period. There are two schemes in the Bonded...

UCAT Learning Forums

You will find numerous forums on the internet discussing UCAT and medical entry. Many of them are run anonymously and contain a lot of misinformation, posted by ‘nameless-faceless people’ with vested interests, so it is important to be sceptical when reading posts on such forums. You may find that MedEntry is not mentioned on third party forums, because we have our own learning forums. 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...
