UCAT revision plan

Hello, I will take the UCAT in early July, aiming for 2600-2700. Is 10 weeks enough to prepare? How can I create an effective plan? I got the Medify subscription, I will be able to solely focus on the UCAT from June 1 and onwards as my exams will be over by then. Any help would be appreciated tysm 🥹

thats loads of time just bang medify and you'll be fine

start with learning how each section works / differs from the rest (e.g. timing, type of question, etc) - medify has some videos to help you learn
then start practicing some questions untimed to get a gist of things before progressing to trying to do them with speed
^all of that can be like the first week

then for the remainder you wanna grind questions under timed conditions, picking up the speed day by day and spreading your time out for each of the 4 sections, throw some mock tests in there on weekends maybe and do section mock tests throughout (bare in mind medify only lets you do a specific mock test once)
eventually you'll work out your strengths and weaknesses so you know what to work on the most (for me it was VR)

good luck with everything

Hey more than enough and with Medify you will be good. Take one mock first to see where you are at for each section and really don't aim for 2600-2700 but maximize your score. I'd say the DM and QR are the easiest sections (most likely to get the right answers). And I agree with George's advice. Do remember to take days off tho cause Medify burnout is a real thing. Learn to make good use of your calculator + keyboard shortcuts and do use rough paper for working out/writing key question details (helps w DM/QR) so you don't tempt yourself to re-read em questions. Ultimately target your weak sections (for many of us this is VR). It's ok if you can't up your score too much in this section. Instead try to play to your strengths. Knowing patterns for AR is useful = symmetry/colours/positions/angles/direction/no of corners etc. Good luck!
