8 Week UCAT Challenge

Are you finding it difficult to pace yourself or stay on top of your UCAT study? With the UCAT Masterclass 8 Week UCAT Challenge, we provide you a weekly guide to complete your UCAT theory and quizzes to ace your exam!

Do you struggle to commit to study? Do you need a goal, or competition, to rise to your best? Our 8 week UCAT challenge will whip your marks into shape. This is like a bootcamp, but for your UCAT skills.


What is the 8 Week UCAT Challenge?

Our unique 8 Week UCAT Challenge is designed to help you prepare for your UCAT exam and ace it. The challenge sets you a series of goals for each of the 8 weeks in the lead up to the UCAT exam.

Steady preparation means no last-minute stress! No nasty exam surprises!


Overview of the 8 Week Challenge

Let’s see what each week requires you to do!


During the challenge, we provide you with our Theory Modules. Each Module explains a different subtest and provides you with examples and strategies to tackle them.

Then, once you’re ready, you can complete the quizzes to test your skills for that subtest!

Each time you do a quiz, you will receive a mixture of questions. This way, you’re applying your skills to a wide variety of questions. If you want to focus on a particular question type, you can select that question type for the quizzes.

You can access your quiz results immediately. We provide the solutions and explanations for all the questions so you understand how to get the right answers. Our intelligent reporting will give you a breakdown of how you’re going in each question type and, also, how you compare to everyone else. This helps you identify your strengths and weaknesses and direct your learning.
