Verbal Reasoning

This section test’s your ability to critically reason statements and how they relate to the passages given.
We’ll be introducing you to the different types of statements, and going over techniques that’ll speed up your comprehension of the text and help you find the right answer in the shortest amount of time.

Decision Making

In Decision Making, you will have to use a number of different techniques to answer the different types of questions.
We have carefully taken apart this section and created a set of techniques for each question type. This section isn’t easy, but we’ll make it as bearable as possible and give you the best shot at doing well in this section.

Quantitative Reasoning

In this section we will quickly yet effectively run through every possible mathematical principle tested and make sure you have a strong grasp of these before tackling exam-style practice questions with interactive feedback.

Abstract Reasoning

Identifying patterns in pretty shapes is a welcome break from the stress of the previous two sections, and with a solid system in place, you can really raise your score here. Patterns can be painfully obvious, or ridiculously obscure and as usual, the objective is to beat the clock.

Situational Judgment

This section of the UCAT doesn’t contribute to your overall UCAT score, but instead, a raw score in this section will be expressed in one of four bands, with band 1 being the highest.
We’ll go through the correct approach for all SJT questions and how to work with a strategic framework that will help you become more confident in putting down an ethically robust answer.

All UCAT Sections

Every section of the UCAT exam has a chunky section set aside in the workbook. You’ll get the basic information of the section to start and an understanding as to why the section is required. You’ll then move onto advanced tips and strategies to ensure you can get the highest possible score, along with tons of practice questions and fully worked solutions.

UCAT Preparation

Before anything else and teaching you the main strategies for tackling the UCAT, we want to give you the best advice on how to prepare on your own at home. This ‘Preparation’ chapter contains helpful tips on what you should be focusing on when preparing, making a study plan and general productivity. A solid game plan for your UCAT exam is something every test-taker should have.

UCAT Strategy

The ‘Strategy’ chapter will go through some of the most important principles and techniques you should know for the UCAT. There’s a clear overarching strategy that you should follow on top of the more specific strategies discussed within the individual sections: this crucially includes time management, when to discard and move on, and general approaches to questions

UCAT Practice

Much of exam success comes down to smart practice. Too many students fail to properly reflect upon their practice sessions and identify important areas to work on. You have to be your own coach when practising at home, and this means knowing what to look out for. This chapter will emphasise ways of maximising what you get out of every practice section.

Hundreds and hundreds of students have attended our courses and loved them. In this page, you can find their unedited reviews of our courses.

FAQs

Got some questions about the UCAT Crash Course? You might just find the answer here. If not, you can always reach out to us and we’ll be happy to help!

Glad you asked! We certainly think it is, though our opinion is probably slightly biased. 

If you want a more impartial opinion, we can tell you that we give a feedback form to students at the end of each course, and our years of teaching UCAT, every single student has answered ‘Yes’ to the question ‘Would you be inclined to recommend the course to a friend?’ We’ve also got a tonne of reviews that you can read on our reviews page. 

By all means, if money’s no object then do please attend whatever courses you feel will help you. However, if you’re looking for the best value-for-money option, then there’s really nothing that beats us. We’ll give you a whole day of teaching, provide everything you need to prepare for the test, and in the end, hopefully help you get into a great university. No other company provides all that for the price that we’re offering. 

Your course instructor will be a super knowledgeable medic who has sat the exam and scored in the top 10%. They will have first-hand experience of the test, and have taught many students to follow in their impressive footsteps!

We take great care to make sure our tutors are the best of the bunch. We’ve got an average tutor rating of 4.93/5 (with over 4,000 reviews!) so we think we do a pretty good job of this.

The course is held live on Zoom. You’ll be sent over a link and a companion guide so you can follow along with ease.

Even a jam-packed full-day course like ours won’t teach you everything you need to know for the UCAT. What it will do is provide a solid foundation and a springboard for the rest of your revision.

Getting a high UCAT score isn’t something you can rely on a silver bullet for, but we hope our Crash Course is as close to a silver bullet as possible!

You will be given a 300ish page course e-book, containing all you need to know to do well and packed with practice questions and detailed solutions. During the course itself, we will be referring constantly to this book and interactively going through it as a class. This book should become your best friend every day until test-day (after which you can burn it!). 

You’ll also get the course companion guide which will take you through the course on the day.

It’s true, we’re not examiners or anything (if those even exist). We’re just a group of medical students who have successfully been through the process. As such, you won’t get any insider knowledge from us (nor will you from anyone else), but what you will get, is arguably the most important perspective – the student’s perspective. Because we know what kinds of things you’ve covered in school, we’re able to tailor our teaching to suit you, in a way that no one else really can.

Along with this, we’ve worked very hard to bring you the best strategies and techniques that have worked for us and we know will work for our students. 

It goes without saying that we constantly test and improve upon strategies year on year, and cover any new changes to the exams. We know how hard the tests are, having taken them ourselves very recently, so we can share with you the tips and tricks we learnt which we found helpful. And at the end of the day, it just really helps to be taught by people you can easily relate to – it makes things far more enjoyable. 

Book today and watch your UCAT score skyrocket.

All of our resources and courses are created and led by tutors who have recently gone through the process and passed with flying colours. We’ve helped thousands of students with their UCAT exam. Will yours be next?
