Each test has it’s own style and the universities that you choose to apply to should also reflect your choice in which test you think you will score highest in.

 

\’Choosing a UKCAT University.

So you know which entrance exam you need to prepare for, what next?

Well, as mentioned in part 2, you need to get clinical experience. This is vital for most medical school applications but will also help for you to get a better understanding on the real side of medicine. This can give you a real ‘leg up’ on most applications and will also help you should your selected medical school hold interviews as part of the selection process. Try to arrange as broad an experience as possible. A shadow shift with your dad’s friend is great but if you can also get in some volunteer work for St Johns Ambulance or actual work in a hospital, you will be able to stand head and shoulders above the competition.
