UCAT Preparation Courses

The UCAT is an important test for prospective medical students, and with the number of applications increased, it’s becoming more competitive. This means your UCAT score is vital to help secure you a place at your dream university. At UniAdmissions, we’re on hand to prepare applicants for the exam, ensuring you receive all the tuition and support you need to achieve the highest score.

What Is The UCAT Exam?

The UCAT (University Clinical Aptitude Test), previously called UKCAT, is a 2-hour computer-based assessment that tests a range of skills for medicine and dentistry degree programmes at many UK universities. It helps admissions tutors best select applicants based on the abilities, attitudes, and professional behaviours required in doctors and dentists.

The UCAT is split into 5 separate timed subtests — Verbal Reasoning, Decision Making, Quantitative Reasoning, Abstract Reasoning, and Situational Judgement — consisting of 233 multiple-choice questions in total.

How To Prepare For The UCAT Exam

Preparing for your UCAT exam is imperative in order for you to pass and increase your chances of getting into your first choice medical school. We recommend learning about the styles of questions involved in the test and understanding the theory behind them, as well as practicing questions at your own pace before attempting the timed conditions.

You can improve your chances of scoring highly by working with an expert tutor here at UniAdmissions, guiding you through the process and offering experienced insight into the UCAT.

Frequently Asked Questions

We work with a limited number of students each year to ensure we can provide the best support suited for their particular needs.

Our Programmes have a structured syllabus, however, we tweak elements of the syllabus so the student is able to gain the most out of our support.

As we work with a limited number of students, we have a limited number of places available for enrolment on each Programme.

The best way to find out whether there are still places available is by booking a free consultation here or contacting us via Livechat, where our expert Admissions Consultants will be able to advise you further.

We do have ideal start times at points throughout the year, however, the syllabus can be adapted to suit your particular start time if you are accepted onto the Programme. Our Admissions Consultants can help you understand the Programme timeline in your specific case – all you need to do is ask.

First and foremost, we assess whether the potential student has the right academic capabilities and profile to be realistically accepted to study at Oxford or Cambridge.

Secondly, we assess whether the student is capable and willing to put in the time required to create a strong application for Oxbridge.

Finally, we assess the student’s attitude and reasoning behind applying to Oxford or Cambridge. This is one of our most important considerations.

If a student has below-average (but still realistic) grades for Oxford and Cambridge, but the correct attitude, we would consider accepting them onto our Programme. Unfortunately, if the inverse is the case, it’s unlikely the student would be accepted onto the Programme.

UniAdmissions is committed to giving the very best service to every student. Our talented tutors are the key to the excellent service we pride ourselves on, passing on not only their expertise, but also their enthusiasm to inspire the next generation to succeed.

All tutors are either current senior students, recent graduates or from a professional background. Our selection process ensures only the best tutors work for us, in roles most suited to their skill-sets.

You’ll get access to all of our online resources and paperback books relevant to your admissions test all packed with powerful strategies and techniques to help you prepare, improve and boost your score.

Tuition sessions are held online via video chat. Times for these sessions are arranged between you and your tutor to best meet your needs. 

In exceptional cases, in-person tuition may be offered. 

Absolutely, and we’d encourage you to do so.
Make sure you give your tutor enough notice (at least 5 days) for them to prepare the appropriate materials.
