If you are in Year 10: Books are a great place to start if you are currently in Year 10. At this stage, your preparation towards UCAT and interviews should be relaxed but regular enough to ensure a higher level of readiness by the time you sit the UCAT. We recommend that you work on your communication skills while keeping medical interviews in mind. As for the UCAT preparation, it is recommended that you spend about 30 minutes, twice per week, going through some practice questions. Speak to our team for advice on which titles would be the best for you to start with at this stage.
At NIE, we offer a range of workshops and seminars, depending on your individual needs.
