    The Kaplan test is a UKCAT preparation course
    They're having a sale which ends tonight. It's 10% off. It costs £330 usually so it will cost £297 during the sale. It's a one day course btw
    Is it worth it? I want to get a really high UKCAT because I don't have any work experience and so I won't be able to apply to personal statement heavy unis.
    Will it be a waste of money? If it helps a lot then I'm willing to pay for it especially since it's 10% off at the moment. But if the course doesn't make a difference then I won't bother.

    It really isn't worth it. Use medify and buy the kaplan book second hand. The course isn't going to give you any extra insight, it will simply be someone talking through whats in the book.
    You're best just using something like Medify to practice a lot.

    Practice is the key, not a course. Although if you want to succeed at interview you'll probably need some work experience or volunteering, so a good ukcat won't sort everything.

    You could literally buy every UKCAT book and subscribe to every question bank and it would still be cheaper than that - and give you a lot more practice. You're getting ripped off dude.

    Why haven't you got any work experience?

    No it's not worth it at all. Medify is much better as in practice wise.. The rest really depends on the day

    Definitely not worth the money. You are better off buying books and practicing constantly, than to rely on those shady stuff.
