Our UKCAT experts have put together a blog with our top tips for UKCAT Abstract Reasoning.
It goes over the question types, how to look out for patterns and more.
Ultimately, practice makes perfect. Have a look at the UKCAT official website and the Candidate Toolkit (if you haven't already!). There are video tutorials on Abstract Reasoning on this page (click on Menu and then Abstract Reasoning).
Hope you find the above useful,

I'm pretty sure that section is actually an elaborate practical joke

Yes, it's kinda weird. Surely there are better ways of seeing if someone can find patterns than to make them work out whether an arrow to the left means 4 corners and an arrow to the right means 3 corners.

I found this mnemonic on https://www.pastest.com/blog/applyin...act-reasoning/ which makes it a bit easier.
S – Shape: what type of shapes are used?
C – Colour: what colour/shading is used?
A – Arrangement/Angles: what type of angles are used, are they noticeably 90°/obtuse/acute?
N – Number: how many shapes are there? E.g. is there always twice the number of squares than circles?
S – Symmetry: are there any visible symmetrical patterns?
there's a more complex version of this i found on https://schooltomedicine.wordpress.c...nic-technique/ but there's quite a bit to take on board.
hope that helps!!
