Pretty intense, right? Alright, let’s explain what makes UCAT Masterclass so effective.

 

Theory modules

Theory modules explain what the subtests are and provide you with techniques to deal with every question type (with examples!).

 

Quizzes

Quizzes are built to test your knowledge and skill of every subtest. Every time you complete a quiz, you will receive a new set of questions. This ensures that you are always learning and being exposed to a variety of question types.

If you want to practice a certain question type, you can simply select that question type for your quizzes instead.

You can even design your own quizzes to specifically target any areas you really struggle with or worry about with our Quiz Builder.

 

Intelligent reports

Our intelligent reports give you immediate results and feedback. We provide you with answers and explanations for every quiz question.

Intelligent reports provide you with a breakdown of your progress for each question type and compares your results with other students. This will help you identify strengths and weaknesses and focus your learning.

Intelligent reporting ranks you against your peers and the thousands of users that sat the UCAT MED. This is essential as it gives you realistic expectations for your performance.

2. Target weak areas

It is critical that you are targeting your weaknesses earlier rather than later in the UCAT journey.

At this stage, you should be familiar with most questions types already. However, we know that there is always more room for improvement.

Our quizzes and mock exams will help identify your weaknesses and hone your skills to deal with more challenging questions.

After every quiz or exam, our intelligent reporting system will show you:

  • Your overall score
  • The time taken to complete the quiz/exam
  • Your results for each question type
  • Your performance for each question
  • The answer and explanation for each question
