MedEntry runs UCAT Workshops throughout the year. To find out when the UCAT Workshops are being offered, view the courses page.

Please enrol in a UCAT Workshop that is available. UCAT Workshops are added periodically and you can easily change the date of your Workshop later (see the FAQ "Can I change the date of my Workshop" for more details).

We encourage you to attend a MedEntry UCAT Preparation Workshop. 

But don't just take our word for it, check out the hundreds of glowing Google and Facebook reviews of our workshops posted by our happy and successful students. We have more and higher ratings than every university! MedEntry's global offices have over 3000 reviews at a star rating of 4.9+, far exceeding that of any university.

Three of the main benefits of the MedEntry workshop are:

  1. Learn strategies for approaching the UCAT questions

The study guides on the Online Learning Platform (OLP) do provide detailed approaches to different UCAT question types, but it is always more effective to be taught this information than simply to read it yourself – after all, according to the psychiatrist William Glasser, we learn 10% of what we read, but 50% of what we see and hear!

The UCAT workshop highlights what kind of approaches to questions are the most important, and what types of UCAT questions are the most common. This allows you to make the most of all the resources provided by MedEntry, and perform as well as possible on the UCAT. In evaluations, MedEntry students say that they either did not use the resources on the OLP, or did not know how to efficiently and effectively use them, until they attended a MedEntry UCAT Preparation Workshop.

Additionally, some inside knowledge and information that is not available elsewhere is provided at the UCAT workshop. You will also find that many of the skills that you learn at the UCAT workshop are transferrable, and useful for school and university study.

  1. Motivation 

Attending a MedEntry UCAT Preparation Workshop provides motivation to perform well on the UCAT, as it can make the whole UCAT process feel clearer and more real.

You will also interact with students with similar interests and passions. This is a fantastic opportunity for developing your thinking and forming new friendships and study groups, as well as a great source of motivation.

  1. Mini-tests, and a further full-length online trial exam

The course aims to demonstrate the best principles and strategies needed to succeed in the UCAT. Students attending the workshop attempt short mini-tests in each UCAT section to give the students hands-on experience and allow the lecturer to clearly demonstrate the application of speed and accuracy techniques to each type of question found in the UCAT.

Students will also attempt a further full-length test on a simulated computer platform at a specific time, exactly as in the real UCAT.

This is immensely helpful for a number of reasons:

- You will have a much better idea of what to expect from the experience of sitting the actual UCAT exam.

- You will be able to see how your scores compare to fellow MedEntry students, and how they are predicted to compare to those of everyone taking the exam.

- You will be able to determine your strengths and weaknesses; on what sections you need to focus the most, how to plan your UCAT preparation, and how to plan your approach in the UCAT itself. Remember that wherever you are currently at is just a starting point; it’s incredible what it is possible to achieve with practice – and MedEntry provides all the resources to allow you to practice in the most effective way possible!

Further benefits of the MedEntry UCAT workshop include:

  • Learn how to use the OLP efficiently and effectively
  • Invest in your future by enhancing your thinking skills that will be useful throughout your career
  • Interact with other like-minded students which will help develop your thinking skills
  • Discuss numerous past UCAT questions and efficient, effective and elegant ways of arriving at the answer

Attending a MedEntry UCAT Preparation Workshop is an invaluable opportunity that will allow you to achieve your best score possible on the UCAT.

The UCAT and interview preparation courses are run by doctors and professors with decades of teaching experience and UCAT expertise. For more information on your workshop lecturer, please see our UCAT Workshop page.

A timetable is available for the UCAT Workshop.

Starting and finishing times are subject to change so you should refer to the email that is sent to you before your UCAT Workshop for exact times.

Please check your confirmation email for the times that the workshops commence and end, or contact MedEntry. 

Please remember to have handy:

  • Pens and paper
  • A calculator

To find out which UCAT Workshop you are enrolled in, please follow these steps:

  1. Login into the MedEntry website by clicking Login on the right hand top corner
  2. Click on My Bookings
  3. You should be able to view your UCAT Workshop date

If a UCAT Workshop is shown as "Full" and you feel that is the only UCAT Workshop that you can attend due to other commitments, please enrol in another "Open" UCAT Workshop and email us with a request to transfer you to the UCAT Workshop shown as "Full".

We will make every effort to ensure that your request is accommodated.

Yes, you can change the date of your UCAT Workshop, as long as the UCAT Workshop you would like to move into is not full.

In order to change the UCAT Workshop that you are enrolled in to a different Workshop, please follow these steps:

  1. Login into the MedEntry website by clicking "Login" on the top right 
  2. Click on "My Bookings"
  3. You should be able to view your UCAT Workshop date and location under the heading "booked event details"
  4. Follow the prompts to move into your desired Workshop

Please do not panic. There is no need to phone us either.

Please simply send an email letting us know which Workshop you would like to attend instead, and we will arrange it for you.

Similarly, if you are unable to join the Workshop at the start time, there is no need to call. Just join when you can.

You may attend any UCAT Workshop that is convenient to you. 

Some students feel that they need to attend the workshop before they begin the work on the Online Platform.

This is generally not a good idea.

To gain the most from the workshop, we recommend that you complete some work on the Online Platform first (including completing 1-2 full length practice exams).

However, if you are in younger year levels, you would like to gain a general insight into UCAT or would like motivation, attending a workshop first may be suitable.
