How to Prepare for the UCAT in 2024

The UCAT is undoubtedly one of the most stressful parts of the medicine and dentistry application process. MedicHut’s step-by-step strategy to succeed in the UCAT is formulated by top 1% scoring candidates. You can get full access to this UCAT revision strategy in MedicHut’s FREE UCAT Revision Timetable!

4-Step Process for UCAT Revision

The 4-step process outlined in further detail in our UCAT Revision Timetable is as follows:

  1. Planning UCAT preparation
  2. Learning UCAT strategies
  3. Practicing UCAT questions
  4. Intense UCAT practice and official mock exams

How to Use the UCAT Revision Timetable

To most effectively use our UCAT Revision Timetable, you need a minimum of 6 weeks dedicated to solid UCAT preparation. You should read through the brief guide, then fill in your proposed dates for each section of UCAT preparation. You’ll need to use either the pdf for annotation, or print out a copy of the timetable so you can have it handy. You’ll also need to use this alongside other resources for the UCAT, like our UCAT crash course or one-to-one UCAT tutoring. This is to ensure that you fully understand and are able to implement the strategies needed for each section of this difficult exam.

Student Reviews

I used MedicHut’s Masterclass Package and got a UCAT score of 2890, followed by 4 interviews which led to 2 offers and 2 waitlists. I had access to the personal statement, ucat and interview masterclasses as well as monthly support sessions to ask any questions. For UCAT prep, I used the tips given in all sections and then practiced using the Medify subscription in the package. The tutors explained really well and answered any questions. I received offers from Sheffield and Barts, and was put on waiting lists for Liverpool and Leicester. It was all really helpful, thank you so much for the support!

I bought the premium package with MedicHut and I couldn’t be more grateful for their service! With fantastic tutors guiding me through the whole process I achieved a score of 3310 and band 1. I received detailed feedback on my personal statement and received interviews from all 4 of my medical schools. With the help of my team of university-specific interview tutors and a fantastic interview masterclass and MMI mock, I went on to receive offers from all of my universities post-interview! MedicHut helped me through every step, helping me secure my offer at King’s college London, St George’s, Queen Mary’s and Bristol.

‘MedicHut has got to be one of the best platforms out there for university application help. I achieved 3080 Band 1 and don’t think it would be possible without MedicHut. The UCAT sessions they did at my school were so helpful and I used their eBook and UCAT revision planner to guide my revision. Using MedicHut resources allowed me to break everything into small steps, and avoid getting overwhelmed. Their thought out planners and resources is what makes MedicHut stand out from other platforms. I’ve received an offer from my dream university, Kings College London, and would urge anyone who is applying to use MedicHut.’
