Give yourself the opportunity to make the exam as realistic as possible:
That’s right, it’s just like the real UCAT exam!
Keep an eye on the timer as it’s easy to lose track of time. Check the time periodically, this will give you an indication of whether you need to speed up or slow down.
Make sure you are a master with the onscreen UCAT calculator.
There is no negative marking in the UCAT. To maximise your UCAT score, make sure you answer every single question even if you guess.
You will not have time to fixate on any single question. If you find yourself being stuck, guess and flag the question and return to it at the end of that section if you have spare time. Remember, the goal of UCAT is not to get all questions right but to get as many questions right as you can in the given time.
It may be useful to skim the actual questions before reading the given information, particularly if it is a long passage with a lot of text. This will give you an idea of what the question is looking for.
