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.

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...

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.

UCAT Speed Reading Trainer Launched!

When sitting the UCAT, you will have an average of less than 30 seconds to answer each question.

To read quickly, you need to avoid subvocalization, and engage in ‘chunking’, which involves reading multiple words simultaneously.  MedEntry has developed an exclusive UCAT Speed Reading trainer that helps you to reduce subvocalization, helps you ‘chunk’ and significantly increases your reading speed. You can set the...
