We break down each section of the UCAT: Verbal Reasoning, Decision Making, Quantitative Reasoning, Abstract Reasoning and Situational Judgement. For each section, we’ll explain the most common situations or phrasing. We’ll go over the key concepts, then show you the fastest and most efficient ways to answer every question type.
We also ask you questions throughout to keep you on your toes. All lessons are fully repeatable and you can jump to any point. If you get interrupted or have to take a break, it’s easy to pick up where you left off!
5 UCAT Workbooks
Get 5 UCAT Workbooks, one for each section for the UCAT to help you become familiar with each question type.
Each one will help you work on a specific section of the exam, with a summary of all the key strategies at hand, all the practice questions worked through the UCAT React lessons and extra practice drills to get you comfortable answering so you can practice every question type.
UCAT Practice Test
2 full-length practice test help you solidify your knowledge under timed conditions, using software that looks and feels exactly like the real UCAT exam. We believe students get tricked by answering questions fast on paper or on a particular website, but once they are in the real exam, they are unfamiliar with the online UCAT calculator, the online navigation, flagging system etc. and everything takes longer.
Our software looks and works like the real deal, so you get no surprises on your exam day, with questions that look exactly like the REAL UCAT test. This means you’ll be familiar with all the buttons, placement and weird calculator before the big day. No surprises!
