“I’d just like to say that I found the UKCAT Crash course that you organised incredibly informative and engaging. You were both jovial, approachable and very competent throughout the entire event. Since the course, the UKCAT Crash Course handbook has been my bible and I have been utilising many of the techniques that you taught us, and my marks have significantly improved!!”

“My advice to any UKCAT candidate is to attend one of these courses! I was really struggling with my whole UKCAT preparation, and had entered the panic stage where I was so stressed out about everything. On the course everything I couldn’t do was explained so well, with examples and questions to practice on. The tutors had prepared a booklet of notes and questions for us to take home as well, which meant that we could go over everything again at home. The tutors themselves were really friendly and knowledgeable, and were happy to help, and to slow down and recap things that people weren’t sure of. Overall it was a really great experience and helped me to achieve a score of 747.5 in the 2014-2015 cycle.”

Computer Resources


Everyone who attends the course gets a free copy of our UKCAT Strategy Guide, which contains general advice about the UKCAT, dedicated chapters for each of the five sections, and example questions that we’ll go through on the day to illustrate the techniques you’ll be taught.

UKCAT Crash Course Handbook

The 250-page A4 book we produced for 2015 was a masterpiece (or so our students thought). We’re updating it for 2016 to include even more tips, tricks and practice questions to make it even better value for money. For an idea of what the book contains, check out the Course Materials page. Or alternatively, you can visit our our Reviews page to see what some of our students had to say about it.

I attended the UKCAT Crash Course you held at Imperial this year ready for 2015 entry and you asked us to let you know how we got on. I took my UKCAT today and was absolutely over the moon with 2940 and Band 1 and this really was so much down to the course I attended, so I just wanted to say thank you so much. The best part about UKCAT Crash Course is the massive and incredibly personal booklet you get given. Unlike other UKCAT books, there’s a voice behind the words written so it makes you feel like you are being guided through how to go about answering the question, even weeks after you’ve done the course! You’re also just really nice people and the way in which you teach is so good at keeping the room engaged because it’s non-stop flipping between learning from you and then applying the knowledge to the question in the timed 2 minutes before we move on. I found DA and SJT the most useful to be taught by you, as both are very difficult to teach yourself. I also went on a BMAT Crash Course, and that was just as helpful, so just my BMAT to come now! Thank you so much, as you really brought out the best in me.

We’ve been running our BMAT Crash Courses in Singapore for the past two years. Having received several emails from Singaporean students asking about a similar UKCAT course, we’d like to set one of those up too. The course is provisionally planned for the first week of September. We’re still working out the logistics, but if you’re a student in Singapore and would like to know when we’ve got more information, please join our mailing list below.
