About UniAdmissions UKCAT Tuition
What our Students Say
Throughout 2017 we helped over 2,000 students with their University admissions. 53% of students we helped were successful in their Medical School admission – that’s three times the national average! Take a look at what some of our UKCAT students had to say about their experience with UniAdmissions.
The tutor I was assigned was really professional and understood everything I was going through. That really helped me to get through my test.
I was struggling with the time limits in some of the sections and I was starting to panic, until I went through UniAdmissions. Zenab was great and taught me lots of little time saving techniques that really helped.
I really liked my tutor and the work we did together but the resources were really helpful too, and it meant that I could study in my own time as well.

Tackle those Problem Areas
Bespoke tuition sessions are a two-way process and the more you put in- the more you’ll get out. Whilst tutors are happy to cover topics that will undoubtedly be useful, you will gain more from the sessions if you come prepared and armed with questions. Students who tend to improve the most are also the ones who persistently ask their tutor for focus on their weaknesses, week after week! We asked our UKCAT tutors to give some examples of past sessions that they’ve conducted to give you ideas about what is possible.
Verbal reasoning is a common challenge. Often low results in mock papers increase the worry about the Section 1 score even more. To start off, I first go over what each of the important keywords mean e.g. True, False, can’t tell and how to differentiate between them. Then I show relatively simple examples to aid slowly building into the more challenging examples. Pointing out keywords that are usually ‘hidden-away’ in the passage that often changes the answer. I do timed drills to see if they can use the skills they’ve acquired under time pressure. This does wonders for their confidence and I finish the session with some homework that includes more verbal reasoning questions that we review in the next session.

This is a common issue and not surprising given that you have to do 36 questions in 25 minutes (approximately 41 seconds per question)! However, there are a number of fairly straightforward techniques that can be used to improve speed dramatically e.g. knowing when to use calculators, reading the options before the data. Depending on each students mental maths capabilities, I will pitch my teaching appropriately to help each student improve their abilities to make rapid calculations. Not only is it useful for the UKCAT, it’s even more important for your studies and for medicine. We then start looking at how to approach this section strategically, finishing with some practice questions from the UKCAT book for the next session.
David, Senior UKCAT Tutor
The UKCAT Abstract Reasoning section is my favourite. There is always initial confusion and frustration over the section because it cannot ‘be solved.’ However, by following a simple system, the answer can be found for approximately 90% of the questions within the time limit. Before the session, I students to read through the Abstract Reasoning Section in the UKCAT book which introduces the system with some worked examples. We then start off with simple patterns (e.g. number of edges, direction of arrows) and then slowly build up to the more complex second order patterns. At the end of the session, I set them 20 more questions to do for the next session to help practice the system.
