Doctors Academy Preparation Course for UCAT

Saturday 24th July 2021

Virtual Course Held via Zoom


Given the disruption to the A-Level exams and the continued unpredictability brought by COVID-19, obtaining a high score in the University Clinical Aptitude Test (UCAT) is even more essential for those applying to medical school in 2022. This interactive one-day course will provide focused information on how to approach each section of the UCAT.

Through a comprehensive discussion of 100s of questions, it will highlight how to answer each type of question, how to answer within the stipulated time, and how to avoid common pitfalls. It will also help the attendee to develop his or her own strategies to answer the various questions that appear in the test.

It is envisaged that, with adequate structured and focused revision by the attendee until the test, the course will enable him or her to aim for a score between 675 and 750 in the Verbal Reasoning, Decision Making, Quantitative Reasoning and Abstract Reasoning sections (for a cumulative score of 2700 to 3000), and Band 1 or 2 in the Situational Judgement component.

The course will discuss:

  • Verbal Reasoning
  • Decision Making
  • Quantitative Reasoning
  • Abstract Reasoning
  • Situational Judgement

Eligibility Criteria:

  • The applicant should have obtained a minimum of 9 GCSEs, which includes at least 6 GCSEs at 'A*/A/9/8' grade and 3 GCSEs at 'A/B/7/6' grade.
