|No commercial preparation courses are endorsed by the UCAT and on their website they state "Candidates should be aware that whilst there are many commercial companies publishing books and offering coaching for our tests, the UCAT Consortium does not work with any of these companies or endorse the use of their materials. Taking advantage of these opportunities can cost candidates a great deal of money and we would advise you to be sceptical about claims they can help you do well in the test by coaching.
Commercial organisations will be using items that are not necessarily of the standard you will encounter in the UCAT and this may distort your performance whilst practising. Screen views may be different and commercial organisations are unlikely to include the new item types which you may encounter in your test. They may also not replicate the UCAT scoring and banding accurately and may give misleading indicators of your anticipated UCAT score."
Books and practice questions are acknowledged to be helpful, with the UCAT official guide and their website cautioning that only recently published or updated resources should be used. UCAT research also suggests that around 25-30 hours of preparation leads to higher test scores.
Free OFFICIAL practice tests which closely mimic the live test are available on the UCAT website here.
Substantial question banks, with over 1,000 example questions are also available on the UCAT website here.
The official UCAT website also provides numerous other free resources to help students prepare for the test, including detailed tutorials on the test, explaining each individual sub-type, a free App students can download, advice pages and tips from past candidates, and the annual UCAT Official Guide. These are all available here.
Familiarising yourself with the styles of questions has been found to be useful and some people recommend getting hold of some old 11+ style test papers for practice. Practice questions for each section of the UCAT can be found with each section.
Thanks goes to Lu-x (unless otherwise credited) for finding and collecting them all together.

This looks at how logically people can think about written information and whether they can arrive at a well reasoned conclusion.
You are given a passage of text to read and then presented with 4 separate statements. Your task is simply to judge whether or not the statement follows logically from information presented in the passage. The choices are 'true' if it does follow on logically, 'false' if it doesn't and 'can't tell' if you can't tell from the information you've been given.

Situational Judgement Test
The situational judgement test (SJT) measures your capacity to understand real world situations and to identify critical factors and appropriate behaviour in dealing with them.
