Why are there no UCAT past papers?
The UCAT exam is a two hour computerised test, assessing your aptitude for Medicine across five sections – Verbal Reasoning, Abstract Reasoning, Quantitative Reasoning, Situational Judgement and Decision Making. As the test is computerised, there are no UCAT past papers – but there are practice questions and mock exams available online to help you prepare.
What can I use instead of UCAT past papers?
Every student will have a different way of revising – but most students find it useful to use a preparation book or practice questions in the place of UCAT past papers.
How Should I Use UCAT Questions to Prepare for the UCAT Exam?
UCAT has a selection of practice questions and mock exams on their website. You can also use our completely free UCAT Question Bank, which has thousands of questions to help you prepare for the UCAT exam. You can use this Question Bank in three stages:
1. Use individual UCAT questions
To start your UCAT revision, try tackling questions from separate sections to familiarise yourself with the types of questions that commonly appear in each one. You can use this to pinpoint the sections you’re not so confident with – for example, if you find yourself making frequent mistakes on the Verbal Reasoning section, you could spend some time on the answer explanations for each question to support your learning.
2. Try UCAT mini mock exams
Another good option in place of UCAT past papers is to try the two mini mock exams available on the question bank.
3. Try a full, timed mock UCAT exam
Finally, for a realistic idea of the exam, try our mock UCAT exam. Our full mock includes 233 questions across all five sections of the exam, lasting 115 minutes – perfect UCAT preparation in place of UCAT past papers.
