UKCAT Revision – The Best Techniques


You should start your UKCAT revision by getting a UKCAT practice book, updated for 2018 is best – more questions mean more practice so get the UKCAT book with the most questions!

As recommended, do 2 hours a day for 4-6 weeks with 1 hour on different sections. Alternate this every day.

Note down which questions you get wrong and you will begin to see where your weaknesses are. If you have time, focus on your weak areas with extra practice questions.

Learn the question archetypes and understand how best to approach them e.g. for Verbal Reasoning questions you want to read the answers first then scan the text for keywords. There are time-saving tips like this that can be applied to every archetype.

You should manage your time wisely, both in the test and out. Do some timed runs of UKCAT past papers to get a feel for the time per section and how you stack up against it. If you find yourself struggling for time on certain sections, then work on those sections.
