Preparation Advice and Practice Tests

We advise you to prepare for the UCAT using the free official practice materials which have been developed by the UCAT Consortium.  We believe that all everyone should have access to free preparation materials to support their test preparation.  The resources and advice below have been produced by ourselves using feedback from previous high-scoring candidates.

 

Preparation Advice

We recommend you start by looking at the UCAT Preparation Plan video which provides a suggested approach and timetable for preparing for your test.  You can also view a printable version of the Preparation Plan here.

Please also read the essential Practice Tips before you go any further with your preparation.  These relate to important test features such as the onscreen calculator, keyboard shortcuts and the noteboard and pen available, and you should be familiar with this information before sitting your test.

You can now start your preparation using the resources below, we recommend you view these resources before moving on to the Practice Tests.

TOUR TUTORIAL

This tutorial illustrates all the functions used in our computer-based test including how to answer questions, call the calculator, move from screen to screen, and also how to utilise the flag and review function.

UCAT YOUTUBE CHANNEL

The official UCAT YouTube channel has a number of videos to support preparation. High-scoring, former UCAT candidates share advice on their preparations for the test, plus a selection of University Admissions Tutors share their thoughts on the use of the test. There are also videos showing what to expect in a Pearson VUE test centre and a playlist of videos from our member universities.

QUESTION TUTORIAL

This interactive tutorial includes advice on how to approach the test, an overview of each of the different question types within the UCAT, as well as giving useful strategies on how to approach and answer questions in the Verbal Reasoning, Decision Making, Quantitative Reasoning, Abstract Reasoning and Situational Judgement subtests.

CANDIDATE ADVICE

You can also read helpful advice from past high-scoring candidates on our Candidate Advice Page and also on our Instagram @ucatofficial.

 

Practice Tests

All example questions and practice tests on our website are produced by the UCAT Consortium and are representative of the live test.  We recommend you use these official materials to prepare for your test.  Don't forget to read the Practice Tips before you start using the practice tests as these contain important information regarding the on-screen calculator and keyboard shortcuts available which you should be aware of before you begin.    

QUESTION BANKS

These official UCAT question banks contain hundreds of example questions from all five subtests. Use these to familiarise yourself with the type of questions you will see in your test. Answer rationales are also provided for all questions.  These are intended to be viewed on desktop rather than mobile devices, so as to accurately reflect the live test experience.

 

OFFICIAL MOBILE APP

Download the UCAT Official mobile app for Apple and Android users. This cannot replicate all question types from the live test but is a useful preparation tool to complement our other resources.  You can practise questions on the go and it's great for when you only have a few moments to squeeze in some UCAT preparation.

PRACTICE TESTS

Our official UCAT tests, which mimic closely the testing experience, are an essential part of your preparation.  Produced by the UCAT Consortium, these can be taken under timed or untimed conditions and are the closest representation of the live test you can experience.  These are intended to be viewed on desktop rather than mobile devices, so as to accurately reflect the live test experience. Please note that when you take the live test your correct and incorrect answers will not be reported.
