Generally, the Registration commences at 9:00 am and the Course ends approximately at 4:00 pm on both days. Some workshops may begin earlier or later on either day. Please check the letter and email that is sent to you regarding the workshop carefully.

The course aims to maximise the amount of time demonstrating the principles and strategies to tackle UCAT. Students attending the workshop will therefore attempt a short Mock UCAT so that the lecturer can demonstrate techniques to optimise speed and accuracy.

However, students will also be attempting a further full length mock UCAT on a simulated computer platform at a specific time (with results made immediately), exactly as in the real UCAT. They will also have access to fully worked solutions to all questions and video solutions to the more challenging questions.
