Preparing for the ECAA: How UniAdmssions can Help you

The ECAA course will help you tackle the parts you find daunting

The vast majority of MCQs are either problem solving, data handling or critical thinking. Whilst this section is renowned for being difficult to prepare for, we’ll teach you common shortcuts and techniques you can use to save valuable time on these type of questions. We go over common types of questions that tend to come up every year and show you how to get to the correct answer quickly and efficiently.

You have just under 2 minutes per question so most students are usually able to finish the majority of questions in time. However, some questions are very tricky and can be a big drain on your limited time. This is usually why people don’t finish and therefore don’t perform as well as they could in this section. Therefore, you are taught to identify which questions are going to be easy and quick to do. This allows you to score easy marks and not spend time on the difficult ones until the end.

Even good students struggle with ECAA Maths as it forces them to work under extreme time pressure which results in silly mistakes (compounded by not finishing the paper). As the start of the maths part of the course, we go through the key themes in ECAA maths like graphing, functions, basic calculus to make sure everyone is on the same level. We then focus on tricky questions and use them as examples to show how most maths questions have a ‘short-cut’ built into them to allow you to save time. The latter half of the session focuses on further time-saving techniques as well as finishing up with a list of core equations and identities that you must know for the ECAA maths section. Finally, there is a chance to put what you’ve learned into practice and consolidate your learning by reviewing additional ECAA questions.

The Essay is frequently neglected by lots of students, who choose to spend their time revising for the MCQs instead. However, it has a higher return per hour of work than Section 1 so is well worth putting time into. Whilst different questions will inevitably demand differing levels of comprehension and knowledge, it is important to realise that one of the major skills being tested is actually your ability to construct a logical and coherent argument– and to convey it to the lay-reader.

We will teach you crucial strategies and provide a framework that you can use to answer any essay that turns up in the exam. You’ll also see examples of good and bad essays- including introductions and conclusions so you can start to appreciate what the admissions tutors are looking for. If you’d like more help- we’ll be more than happy to help after the course too!
