Here are some further pointers to ensure your UCAT revision goes smoothly.
Book Your Test Early. Whether you want to take your UCAT early or late in the testing cycle, get it booked! The sooner you do this, the more choice you will have – and the more likely you can secure the date that suits you best. Take a look at our UCAT Dates and Prices page to find out about booking.
Familiarise Yourself with UCAT. Start with the basics: make sure you understand what UCAT is, whether you need to take it and what it means for your application. Our UCAT guide should help. Aim to get a solid grasp of how the test works and what it consists of.
Revise Section-by-Section. Learn about each section and think about what it’s assessing, then try to build your skills in that area.
Don’t Restrict Your Revision. Don’t just use Practice Questions (though, as you will see, these will be an essential part of your preparation). For instance, Verbal Reasoning is about quickly extracting information from passages of text. You can work on this by skim-reading magazines or newspapers.
