COVID-19 UPDATE - At NIE, client safety, as well as our staff safety, is at most important. Therefore, during these difficult times, we will most likely conduct the face-to-face component of our workshops as Live Online Workshops. Please note that the content and quality of these workshops will not be compromised and students will gain the exact same benefits that they would from attending the face-2-face workshops. This policy will remain in place until further advice from the Australian government in relation to mass gatherings and the COVID-19 status in our communities. 

Are you in year 10, 11 or 12 and considering a career in medicine or dentistry?

Then you are invited to attend and participate in our "Simulated UCAT Day". 

This event will be conducted by the National Institute of Education in partnership in partnership with UCAT Preparation AustraliaMICAS (Medical Interviews and Career Advise Services) and PTTI (Pro Training Tutorial Institute). 

The workshop is designed to cover fundamental techniques in navigating all five section of the UCAT test. Students will spend the days with one of our specialist teachers in the field and will be able to ask questions and address any concerns they may have about the test.  The 5 sections of the UCAT test, which will be covered at the workshop are listed below:

Verbal Reasoning - assess your ability to critically evaluate information presented in a written form.

Decision Making - assess your ability to make sound decisions and judgements using complex information.

Quantitative Reasoning - assess your ability to critically evaluate information presented in a numerical form.

Abstract Reasoning - assess your ability the use of convergent and divergent thinking to infer relationships from the information.

Situational Judgement - assess your ability to measures the capacity to understand real-world situations and to identify critical factors and appropriate behaviour in dealing with them.

Just after lunch comes the challenge - Participants will be sitting a UCAT mock test under strict test conditions. Just like the actual test, each section will be timed separately. Students will not be allowed to write on the test paper and will only use a notepad and calculator where required. The primary purpose of the SUD is for students to attempt a full test in real-time conditions and see exactly how they would perform. Students will be provided with answers and explanations to the test from which they can complete further study in their own time.  Sitting the trial test will give the candidates more time to better prepare for the real UCAT, and to better address their weaker areas. 

In the final part of the day, 4.30 - 6.00 pm, we would like to invite student's parents and guardians to join us for about 1.5 hours, during which we will be discussing some of the other important aspects and processes to do with the undergraduate pathways into medicine. We will discuss some vital intricacies that candidates often overlook when planning and applying for medicine, as well as discussion around future plans etc. This will be also a forum to answer any general questions that students and parents may have in relation to the pathways into medicine. 

Our face-to-face UCAT workshop is an excellent chance for you to assess yourself (while being assessed!) and discover what areas need the most attention.

  • Workshop Duration: 9am - 6.00pm.
  • Lunch will be provided, which includes vegetarian, non-pork halal, and kosher options. Please note, if your requirements are more specific, we kindly ask that you bring your own food for the day. Students are encouraged to bring morning tea and any extra snacks as it is a long day of training.
