Simulated UCAT Day Workshop

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 one of the NIE's popular workshops, known as ‘The Simulated UCAT Day". Please note, this event is in-high-demand, places are strictly limited, and registration is required. 

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 newly introduced 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 new 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 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 - a sitting of the UCAT under strict exam conditions. Just like during the actual test, each section will be timed separately. Students will not be allowed to write on the test paper and will only use 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 - 6.00pm , we would like to invite students' parents 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.
