AN UPDATE ON HOW THE UCAT SEASON ENDED ON OCTOBR 2, 2019

The proudest moment for a training center is the result day! The past 8 years have been a long, arduous uphill journey for Option, but a journey dappled generously with the fruits of hard work, passion and commitment. We have set records, broken them and redefined the meaning of worthwhile student-teacher interaction. From perfect scores on the SAT, ACT, SAT SUBJECT and AP and jaw-dropping success stories that re-wrote the academic story of many students to expanding our offering of courses and growing as an entity, Option did it all and much more.

It is then befitting for me to say a big thank you to all the students who took up the UCAT 2019 with us and to complement each one for the huge growth he/she registered in terms of diagnostic test to real test scores. I thank also my amazing team – teachers and support staff- that make all this possible by coping with the unrelenting demands of good training. Good luck and cheers for the year ahead!!!

The UCAT (University Clinical Aptitude Test) is a 120 minute (2 hour) computer-based test (CBT) which tests cognitive abilities and ethical attitude expected of future doctors and dentists and which medical and dental schools consider as one of the most important examination to assess aspiring medical students. About 27, out of the 34 UK Medical Schools, require the UCAT as part of their application process and so the importance of the exam is unquestionable.

Introduction

The test is in five sections, each timed separately. The subsections are as follows: Verbal reasoning, Quantitative Reasoning, Abstract Reasoning, Decision Making and Situational Judgement. The initial 4 sections are scored on a scaled score of 300 to 900. However, Situational Judgement section is scored on a band from 1 to 4, with 4 representing the least score and 1, the highest.

Students will always get a minute to read the rubric for the Standard UCAT & more than one minute for the UCATSEN. However, candidates are not recommended to take a break in between the examination as TIME is a crucial aspect in this test when compared to any other examination.

At Option Training Institute, Knowledge village, Dubai, we aim to offer a result oriented UCAT test preparation through a strategy based prep course. We provide each student with intensive one on one sessions in order to maintain the effectiveness of the training and to work on the individual student’s strength. Since the UCAT trainers follow Cambridge standards in terms of teaching, we can certainly provide students with the best in- class training with an engaging and productive class environment wherein students appreciate the quality of the knowledge being shared.
