How to get 900 in UCAT
The UCAT is a widely required exam for prospective medical students not only in the UK, but more recently in other countries as well, such as Italy, Poland, Australia and New Zealand, and even the Caribbean. It is a multiple choice test composed of 5 subsections which aim to evaluate your capacity to understand real-world situations.
For example, the Abstract Reasoning subtest assesses your ability to recognise patterns from an unfamiliar set of information, which is an important skill for a doctor to develop, while the Situational Judgement Test (SJT) asks you to identify critical factors and appropriate behaviour in an ethical situation and decide what the best course of action is.
As such, the UCAT doesn’t cover any theory that you need to study for, but there are still techniques and strategies you can develop to make sure you get an excellent UCAT score. We have compiled our best tips for you, so if you are after that coveted 900 score, continue reading this UCAT guide!
