Three Common Interview Questions and How To Approach Them

Is UCAT getting more competitive? Will UCAT 2021 be even harder?

The UCAT score required for a given percentile has gone up in 2020 compared to 2019. For example, last year a score of 2850 translated to 90th UCAT percentile whereas a score of 2920 was required for the same UCAT percentile ranking in 2020. This is in spite of a small drop in the total number of students sitting UCAT.There are many reasons which contributed to this increase. They include a better prepared cohort of students due to a better knowledge of the UCAT, and Pearson Vue underestimating the level of preparedness of the candidates sitting UCAT this year. Does this mean...

4 Tips for Medical School Applications

 1. Know where you’re eligible forSome students won’t be eligible to apply for all undergraduate medical schools. School leavers are eligible for most, but some schools have some odd stipulations if you’re not coming straight from school. For example, UNSW doesn’t admit students over 25, the University of Adelaide doesn’t want students who have a university academic record from anywhere but Adelaide, and James Cook only has 10 places for non-school leavers. So it really pays to know what you’re actually able to apply for! When I was applying I made myself a table and colour-coded for schools that I was...

Distributed Practice and the UCAT: What you need to know Part 1

Which Subjects Should I Choose in Years 12 and 13?

Your academic score is just as important as your UCAT score when it comes to applying for medical schools in New Zealand and especially Australia. Because of this, a lot of discussion around choosing subjects for senior high school/college remains. It often centres around which subjects will scale the best and which ones are required for applying to medicine. Of course these things are important when thinking about applying for a medical course, but it may also be worthwhile to start thinking about which subjects will help you once you are a medical student and also which subjects will help you...

My UCAT Experience: A Candidate who scored >3000 in UCAT Shares his Tips

My UCAT exam was at 8am, and so I had to wake up at 5:30am to comfortably get ready and travel to the UCAT testing centre, accounting for the 30 minutes waiting time. However, I woke up feeling refreshed and ready to tackle the UCAT exam, and my mental energy was in no way compromised. How? It was simply due to the fact that I had already been waking at 5:30am sharp every morning for the 2-3 weeks leading up to the UCAT exam, and so I was already accustomed and primed to be in top mental and physical condition on...
