UCAT Preparation 2023 for 2024 entry
Here we have created a UCAT revision guide for the 2023 entry that covers everything you need to know about UCAT preparation, the best UCAT revision resources for 2023 and how to revise for the UCAT.
Many students often wonder how to start preparing for the UCAT and how long they need to revise. Generally, we recommend spending at least 200 hours preparing for the UCAT. This involves completing over 2000 questions strategically.
You must first learn all of the UCAT strategies, and then practice them with all the UCAT questions before trying to become quicker to improve your time management. Find out everything you need to know about the best way to prepare for the UCAT, the best UCAT resources available and our tried and tested UCAT preparation study guide.
How To Prepare For UCAT?
How long do you need to prepare for your UCAT test preparation? We recommend that you spend at least 150 - 200 hours preparing for the UCAT.
For most people, this involves answering over 2000-3000 questions. Looking back at 10 years of data, this is the work our most successful students put in for their UKCAT preparation.
We recommend starting early to prepare for the UCAT, for many people this involves doing a UCAT course or beginning UCAT tutoring with one of our expert tutors at least 2-3 months before your exam date.
This is because, before this point, you should be focussing on ensuring you achieve the best AS level or mock test results to help maximise your A-Level predicted grades.
Initially, begin familiarising yourself with the different types of questions that come up in the exam, especially unfamiliar questions such as those in decision making or in abstract reasoning. Do not begin timing yourself until you become more confident in answering the questions, and can answer questions with confidence in untimed conditions.
We normally recommend beginning timing yourself about halfway through your UCAT revision.
