UCAT Revision Tips

2020-04-07

Did you know that Medify’s UCAT ANZ Online Course features a timed practice mode? In this blog, we show you how to use the timed practice mode to improve your UCAT ANZ scores.

What Is Medify’s UCAT ANZ Timed Practice Mode?

Medify’s UCAT ANZ timed practice mode allows you to choose how many questions you want to practise and to answer them within UCAT ANZ based time-limits, just as you would in a section of the actual UCAT ANZ test.

You can select a group of 10, 20, 30 or 40 questions, and choose one of the five UCAT ANZ sections to practise. The timed practice mode will keep on dispensing new questions that you’ve not attempted before. Once you’ve gone through all the questions, it will go back to the beginning and distribute random questions that you would’ve seen before.

Explanations are provided for answers to all questions.

You can also review your incorrect questions at a later time or date by clicking on the “Performance” tab and clicking individual sections and topics. This tab also gives you an overview of your performance on different sections and topics.

How Does Medify’s UCAT ANZ Timed Practice Mode Help me?

The UCAT ANZ only allows you to spend between 14 to 64 seconds per question on average, depending on the section. During the early stages of your UCAT ANZ preparation, untimed practice sessions may be useful for familiarizing yourself with the different types of questions and solving the questions correctly. However, as you become more prepared and the UCAT ANZ test date approaches, you should start using the timed practice mode to get the most out of the UCAT ANZ preparation course.

The timed practice mode gives you a true reflection of your performance and allows you to identify your weaknesses more accurately. With untimed practice, you may look at the results of your practice sessions and be satisfied that you’ve answered a certain proportion of questions correctly. However, with timed practice, you quickly realize that it is just as important to solve your questions quickly, as well as correctly. To put things into the perspective, it is much better to answer all questions and get 70% of them correct, rather than to answer half of the questions and get 100% of them correct.

Under timed conditions, you are able to simulate the condition of the actual UCAT ANZ test and this trains you mentally to handle such pressures. Given that the number of mock exams and mini-mocks are limited, you should make a good use of the timed practice mode. Furthermore, timed practice sessions prompt you to apply educated guessing when needed, which you may be more reluctant to do under untimed conditions.
