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.
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.
