How to get the most from our UCAT Study Guides



If you’ve picked up one of our UCAT resources, thank you! If you haven’t, you can find our entire collection at our store.

We’ve spent the last five years creating affordable resources to help aspiring medics and dentists pass the University Clinical Aptitude Test (UCAT). Thus giving them the best possible chance of succeeding in their application.

To this end, we’ve created three main UCAT resources. Find their titles below with a list of tips on how to get the most out of each one.

  • Follow the challenges in the order they are laid out.
  • Do not skip any of the exercises.
  • Expect the challenge to take longer than 30-days.
  • Take breaks and reward yourself when you complete a challenge.
