If you are planning on studying medicine or dentistry, you are probably considering sitting for the UCAT.

UCAT preparation company UCAT masterclass, have put together some free resources to help assist you to prepare. Click here to access their UCAT handbook

 What's the format of the UCAT?
The UCAT is a 2-hour computer-based test consisting of 233 multiple-choice questions divided into 5 subtests - Verbal Reasoning, Decision Making, Quantitative Reasoning, Abstract Reasoning and Situational Judgement.

2. Should students train for the UCAT?

Students become busy during Year 12 with the demands of the HSC. Many successful students start UCAT study in the December-January school holidays to minimise the workload during their final year.
