Online Learning Platform
You will have access to the UCAT section of the Online Learning Platform until the end of the upcoming UCAT testing period (end of July), irrespective of the date of purchase (unless you have enrolled in a multiyear package). You will have access to other sections of the online learning platform (interview materials and university admissions resources) for a further 6 months afterwards.
The My Journey page outlines your medical entry journey, including the steps we suggest you follow to maximise your chances of obtaining a place in medicine. We suggest that you start on this page and follow the path provided.
It is not the number of hours that you spend on UCAT preparation that is important - rather, it is what you do during that time which matters. The most efficient way to prepare is to complete a full length exam under timed conditions early in your preparation, identify your weakest areas, and work on them. In general, however, we suggest setting aside about 10% of your study time for UCAT preparation.
