Kaplan and medify were the 2 courses I used, they were very helpful and was even able to score full marks on one of the sections , tons of practise questions and full exams.

Hi there!

We already suggested some preparation resources on your other thread (ie 50 free UKCAT questions; our UKCAT Guide) but also thought you might find it useful to read our blogs:

- 4 Things To Know Before Booking your UKCAT
- The UKCAT: an introduction
- Step by Step Guide: Booking your UKCAT

Hope this helps!

I would book your test now. If you wait until your ready it encourages procrastination! Book it for a time where you can have a freeish 2/3 weeks of prep before it.good luck.

Hey there :-) We advise our students to avoid delays when it comes to booking the test. This is because places at local test centres can fill up pretty quickly and besides, you can always postpone the test up until a few days beforehand.

In terms of how much to prepare, we usually say 4-5 weeks, 2 hours a day of timed practice (the time pressure is the main difficulty of the UKCAT and so your practice should prepare for this). The ISC book and Kaplan's Score Higher on the UKCAT are pretty good but don't forget that the test is on a computer so any online question banks are also useful. Feel free to check out our question bank UKCAT Ninja (https://ukcat.ninja/)

Best of luck, try not to worry too much about it and feel free to let us know if you have any other specific UKCAT queries :-)

The 1250 questions is for 2018 entry, so that's the one you want.

You can start with the questions that are freely available on the official UKCAT website. There are free practice questions + 3 mock interviews. Explanations aren't always great but the questions are good to get your head round the techniques you need to use
