            I had 6 hours of 1-1 with Medic Mind, which have been incredibly helpful. Everybody is friendly, knowledgeable and keen to help even if you are short for time.

            Maryam A

            These have specific strategies that really improved my scores. Not only that, but it is very affordable (especially compared to the majority of courses for the UKCAT and BMAT which are heavily overpriced) and the price is for unlimited access to the courses.

            Sophie A

            With the recent change from UMAT to UCAT, we were worried about how much companies in Australia would know about the UCAT. This is why we turned to the UK and were lucky to find Medic Mind!

            The teacher was supportive and friendly when coordinating the UCAT session and helped in clearing any doubts about anything.

            Megan A

            It gave important information on the UCAT that I wouldn't know otherwise. I would like to pass on my thanks to Medic Mind!

            This course provided great tips and tricks for the UCAT exam, I would recommend it for any med-school applicants. It helped me understand each aspect of the exam and went through in detail how to answer each question style.

            Syed H

            I thought the UCAT course they have for offer was exceptionally beneficial, entailing towards students similar to me. The speaker was confinement and spoke in a clear and considered way and projected their voice very well.

            Haider S

            The question sets were motivating and challenging, while still remaining similar to the real thing. In order to improve I would personally recommend spending more time on individual slides to give a better chance for mentees to make important notes.

            Gonn A

            Absolutely inspiring! The help and advice given is nothing like you can find anywhere else.

            Sahil R

            I have seen literally every video on YouTube with the keyword ‘UCAT’ and I can honestly say nothing else compares to the help provided as it gives actual techniques for each section that I can apply to good use in the test.

            Karen C

            As a parent who did not have experience of UCAT previously the advice and support that was demonstrated by medic mind was second to none. Their approach was one of nurturing and care as well as achieving results.

            Lydia really enjoyed the lessons for Ucat and we noticed an instant improvement on her scores in Medify. Thanks to her tutors she was able to improve on her scores and get an offer as she did really badly the year before.

            Jonathan A

            What I liked most was that they told her what to do outside of the lessons and gave homework which helped guide her revision.

            The thing that I liked most about it was that they know how to identify your weakest areas and provide constructive advice on how to improve. I previously had group and online courses with other UCAT exam prep providers, but I felt that 1 to 1 tutoring benefited me more.

            Heshan M

            The UCAT Medic Mind course was game changing for me! Before, I was struggling with speed but after the 1 to 1 tutoring and the online course, I learned some really useful techniques to boost my speed and score.

            Verbal Reasoning

            17 Lessons
            44
            21

            Verbal Reasoning is officially the hardest UCAT section – in 2019, the average UK score was 565. In our in-depth lessons, we will teach you the optimal approach for each question type, whether its a long scientific passage or a tricky statement question.

            Tutorials

            Lesson 1
            Introduction to VR

            To begin with, your UCAT tutor will give you a short overview of Verbal Reasoning, discussing the different types of questions, the UCAT timing and the key challenges you’ll face

            Lesson 2
            True, False, Can’t Tell

            Your UCAT tutor will teach you the easier True, False, Can’t Tell questions. We’ll discuss what each of these terms actually mean, and practice some questions together.

            Lesson 3
            Using Inferences

            Inferences can change a UCAT statement from Can’t Tell to True. Being able to understand when you can and cannot make an inference is essential to scoring well in Verbal Reasoning.

            Lesson 4
            Extreme Language

            Here we will introduce one of our most effective Verbal Reasoning techniques – Extreme Language. We’ll discuss mild and extreme phrases, and how to spot them in the UCAT.

            Lesson 5
            Keyword Approach

            To answer a Verbal Reasoning question in 30 seconds, you need to use the Keyword Approach. Your UCAT tutor will introduce this vital technique and then practice using it in UCAT questions.

            Lesson 6
            Passage Adjustments

            Often there can be slight adjustments between the passage and the statement. Your UCAT tutor will teach you how to spot these, and avoid falling into these common Verbal Reasoning traps!

            Lesson 7
            Writer Questions

            Here we discuss how to approach longer, subjective Writer Passages, including how to quickly find the writer’s conclusion in a long UCAT passage.

            Lesson 8
            Type 1 Statements

            In this tutorial, we tackle the more difficult Statement questions, discussing a range of techniques for time-saving and efficient working.

            Lesson 9
            Type 2 Statements

            Here, we teach you how to apply our Verbal Reasoning techniques on the most difficult and long-winded questions in the UCAT – Type 2 Statement Questions.

            Lesson 10
            Factual Passages

            In this tutorial, we teach you how to successfully tackle the more complicated, abstract passages containing multiple numbers, facts and fine details.

            Lesson 11
            Timing Strategies

            In this tutorial, we consolidate all of the timing techniques we’ve learnt thus far, alongside introducing some new tips for beating that UCAT timer in Verbal Reasoning!

            Lesson 12
            Reverse Questions

            Reverse or Negative Questions often trick UCAT students up. We’ll teach you how to spot them and answer them well in a limited amount of time.

            Lesson 13
            Timing Contingencies

            What do you do if you have 10 questions left to do in 5 minutes? Don’t worry, we’ll guide you through our contingency Cheetah and Rabbit strategies just in case things go wrong!

            Lesson 14
            Causation vs. Correlation

            It’s easy to make assumptions on links and correlations between UCAT statements. In this UCAT tutorial, we’ll go through some tricky examples to teach you an important skill.

            Lesson 15
            VR Test Day

            In this UCAT tutorial we’ll give you a week by week plan for your Verbal Reasoning preparation. We’ll also discuss how to perform at your best on UCAT Test Day.

            Lesson 16
            Tips from the Experts

            We close up the Verbal Reasoning course with some final tips from our UCAT experts, all of whom scored above 850 in the exam.

            Lesson 4
            Venn Diagrams I

            Lesson 5
            Knowing Your Role

            When you are faced with a scenario, you have to identify the status and profession of the person involved. E.g. capabilities and responsibilities of a GP will be very different to that of a Medical Student.

            Lesson 6
            Key Principles

            Your UCAT tutor will give you an overview of the principles of situational judgement including patient safety and professionalism. You will learn which of these are most important in a clinical setting.

            Lesson 7
            Patient Safety

            The most important thing you are taught as a medical student is to always be safe! It is drilled in and is the most important quality in medicine. Your UCAT tutor can share their own experience on the hospital wards to add to the tutorial!

            Lesson 8
            Working with Remits

            This applies in particular to situations revolving around medical students – Medical students are not authorised to make decisions surrounding medical care or give any treatment. Your UCAT tutor can share their own experience on the hospital wards to add to the tutorial!

            Lesson 9
            Confidentiality

            Confidentiality is important for many reasons – this includes patient trust in the profession. Patients are often anxious to come to doctors and so when they do inform them of information they expect that it will not be told to anyone else

            Lesson 10
            Professionalism

            Doctors and dentists should be responsible in healthcare setting and outside healthcare settings. This means that all students and doctors should act responsibly as they are representing a whole profession

            Lesson 11
            Honesty & Integrity

            Everyone makes mistakes and it’s important that if mistakes are made that we follow the right protocol to identify them. You should not directly influence patients’ decision – the modern model of healthcare is patient centred – we want patients to be at the heartbeat of their decisions.

            Lesson 12
            Teamwork & Respect

            No one is above anyone else – it’s why doctors and nurses wear the same type of scrubs. We go through common SJT scenarios around this and help you spot key patterns in their questions. Your UCAT tutor can share their own experience on the hospital wards to add to the tutorial!

            Lesson 13
            Duties of a Doctor
