5 reasons to start your UCAT preparation now!

1. Master the UCAT Learning Curve The UCAT is a test unlike anything you have ever sat before. UCAT Verbal Reasoning is loosely connected to traditional reading comprehension texts and UCAT Quantitative Reasoning is mathematics-based, but both the style and time pressure is truly unique. Furthermore, it is highly unlikely that you will have ever encountered formal testing in the areas of UCAT Decision Making, UCAT Abstract Reasoning and UCAT Situational Judgement. Naturally, it will take an adjustment period to learn how to answer all the many different types of UCAT questions, recognising how long you have to answer each UCAT...

The 5 Biggest UCAT Myths

Myth #1: You can’t study for it People call the UCAT many different things. Is it an IQ test? A personality test? In reality, it is about applying skills you have developed to solve problems. 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. He believed that you couldn’t really get better at the UCAT. Unfortunately, this had consequences when he did not study and thus failed to meet the threshold for his desired course. My...
