The UCAT does not assess a specific curriculum and the capacities measured lie in the general domains of verbal reasoning, decision making, quantitative reasoning, abstract reasoning, and situational judgement. The stimuli used for assessment in each section are non-specific and are selected to mitigate any potential biases.
The Institute of Medical Education UCAT programs focus on building specific competencies required for performance in the exam. Fundamentally, this involves developing an understanding of the approach to answering questions in each section of the exam. Students are demonstrated these approaches through on-demand lectures and then utilise these techniques in completing the formal UCAT practice materials.
With the Institute of Medical Education, all students receive unlimited support from expert UCAT tutors. Our Academic Faculty is staffed by many expert doctors and medical students with experience in medical admissions exams. The best way to determine your necessity to sit UCAT is to contact us today!
