The University Clinical Aptitude Test, or UCAT, is the younger, meaner version of the UMAT. It's a computer-based test from the UK used by Universities as a standardized intelligence and aptitude test for Undergraduate Medical Degrees and Dentistry Degrees.
Many undergraduate Medical and Dental Schools across the country require a UCAT result to be considered for an interview/entry, and often there will be a high cutoff depending on the university and the cohort of applicants. A list of universities can be found here, and each university will make it clear whether or not it is a requirement. So, if you’ve got an inkling to do either medicine or dentistry, I would highly recommend looking into the requirements for the Universities you’re looking to apply for.
Unfortunately, the UCAT is a nasty test that you'll be competing against some of the most driven people in the country to get the best UCAT score; meaning that you’re going to need to give it a red-hot crack. Overall, the UCAT isn’t a test you ‘study’ for, it’s more about developing strategies, perfecting processes, and mentally preparing yourself for it. That's why working with a UCAT tutor can be incredibly helpful in achieving your goals.
VR is all about extracting information accurately and efficiently from a passage of text. You need to skim read for keywords as per each question, and use the flag and return strategy. Our UCAT tutors have years of experience helping students develop the strategies needed to succeed in the VR section.
DM is your logic section. Use diagrams, flow charts, anything that is going to help you. DM has the biggest array of question types, many that you’ll find a breeze, and some that will absolutely stump you, again, flag and return. With the help of a UCAT tutor, you can learn the strategies needed to tackle this challenging section.
Quick Maths. QR is all about reading the question, understanding what they want, and getting the answer as fast as you can. There are a few simple formulas you’ll need to know, but usually this will be stuff you’ve learned all through early high school, so don't worry too much. Our UCAT tutors can provide personalized instruction to help you master the QR section.
The first time you see the AR you’ll think it’s stupid, you get 13 seconds per question, and you’ll be sending photos to your mates. The main strategy? Develop a systematic approach to each question, and use it every single time. Our UCAT tutors can help you develop your own strategy that works for you.
This is a weird one, most universities openly admit that they don't care about the SJT, and that it might only be used to split 2 applicants with the same UCAT, ATAR and Interview (if applicable). Pretty much everything in here will be common sense. While the SJT may not be the most important section of the UCAT, working with a UCAT tutor can help you prepare for this section as well.
The UCAT is nasty, it's intimidating, and it’s highly competitive. But, with enough dedication, you can achieve a good UCAT score. KIS tutors are here to help you with UCAT studies or even ATAR help, providing material on how to prepare for the UCAT exam as well as help you with UCAT marking. Whether you're in Adelaide or Sydney, our UCAT tutoring services can be tailored to meet
As a year 11 student doing ATAR, I was looking for a tutor that could help me with French. KIS Academics was incredibly helpful and fast at finding me a wace french tutor who could assist me with my studies. My tutor Eliza Carey over the past few months has helped me so much not only in French but in biology and maths as well. I’m incredibly grateful for the effort and commitment she has put into helping me be more comfortable and less stressed about the subjects I was having difficulty with. It’s been nothing but an honour to be tutored by Eliza and I strongly recommend her as a tutor

My name is Warren Du and I am a provisional medicine student currently undertaking my Bachelor of Science majoring in Mathematics with a current GPA of 6.9.
A little about myself,
✔️ Currently studying Mathematics and Medicine

✔️ 99th GAMSAT Percentile (100 Section 3)
✔️ Achieved ATAR of 99.15
✔️ Sydney Boys Graduate
✔️ Have 3 years of Private Tutoring experience
While I am all of the above, this is far from myself back in high school. I had to work through trial and error to see which studying habits work and what didn't. Furthermore, I was caught off guard by the changing syllabus. I also didn't really know what I wanted to study at the time, but I wanted options to be available.
But I pulled myself from being ranked 125 to a Top 10 student in a Top 10 selective highschool in NSW to averaging a 6.65 GPA in one of the most competitive universities in Australia.
Realising that taking notes and brute forcing them into your memory a few days before the exam is not only highly inefficient but also stressful. Understanding the principles and absorbing the content via active recall principles.
I'll be constantly testing you and giving you my cues and tips - exam time management, weekly time management, avoiding careless mistakes and written responses.
It's incredibly important that your learning is supplemented by a encouraging and empathetic teacher that can understand what you are going through. However, a student's success is determined 70% by the student and 30% by the teacher. I guarantee my 30% but you must give me your 70% and together we can succeed.
Hi, I'm Sophie! I absolutely adore maths and science and I would be delighted to have you as a student!

I do this by ensuring you feel comfortable and confident with your subjects through offering comprehensive sessions tailored to your learning style and needs. As someone who has always been dedicated to learning, I will strive to help you do your best and achieve your goals. I believe my enthusiasm and positivity towards these subjects, combined with my logical and structured approach, will help you to reach your full potential!
I graduated as dux of my school achieving an ATAR of 99.75 with VCE study scores of 50 in biology, 48 in further maths, 47 in both chemistry and maths methods and a 99th percentile score for the UCAT. I am now studying Dentistry at La Trobe University.
Throughout my high school years, whilst I undoubtably worked hard on my school work, I still ensured I made time for extra-curricular activities such as music, debating and dancing (as well as a full night’s sleep!). I continued this all the way through to year 12, where I was elected music captain. I found that involving myself in all these activities helped me study much more efficiently and effectively, requiring me to develop better study techniques and habits, and gave me a break from the stress of high school and VCE!
Hi there! I'm Maddie and I'm medical student at Griffith University. When I'm not studying, I enjoy playing saxophone, volleyball and catching up with friends.
I was Academic Captain of my high school and graduated with a 99.75 ATAR. Throughout high school, I was quite busy with various extra curricular activities, so acquired a lot of handy tips and tricks about efficient and effective study. I was also lucky to have a group of intelligent peers who were able to give me advice and help out when I was stuck, so I really understand the value of a helping hand. Whether it's providing strategies to tackle that confusing assignment, or helping you nail those dreaded exam questions, I'd love to be that helping hand for you so you can conquer ATAR and get into your dream course, all without giving up the things you love doing!
I understand there are countless different learning styles and methods, and am all about finding what works best for you so your schooling journey is as stress free and enjoyable as possible.
The UCAT stands for the University Clinical Aptitude Test and is one of the criteria used by a majority of the Universities in Australia to select students for medicine and dentistry. It is a two-hour-long exam that you complete on a computer and it focuses on different skills and abilities that universities have identified as being pivotal to success in practising medicine or dentistry. There are 5 sections in this exam: verbal reasoning, decision making, quantitative reasoning, abstract reasoning and situational judgement. The UCAT, alongside your year 12 results and a rigorous interviewing process is what will ultimately determine whether you will be given a place in an undergraduate medicine or dentistry course, so this exam is very important. For more information have a read of the official UCAT Consortium’s website.
The UCAT can seem like a very daunting exam to prepare for, and going into the exam without preparing at all is not advised. Whether you're looking for a UCAT tutor in Adelaide or any other state, a tutor for the UCAT can be of great assistance as they can guide you through each of the sections and help you improve the speed and accuracy of your answers. Without this guidance, it could still be possible to self-learn the techniques and skills required, but it would be a harder journey to travel and having someone there to support you along the way is an invaluable resource.
This is ultimately dependent on how you learn best. If you feel that you are a student who can learn effectively in small groups alongside other students and learn together, then a group setting would be ideal. This would allow you to learn from the questions everyone else would be asking as well and ultimately broaden your understanding as well. Whereas, if you are a student who prefers the individualised tutoring approach, one-on-one sessions will work best. However, for the UCAT, generally, tutoring can entail discussions on how to best approach questions and how to focus on the skills and techniques the UCAT Consortium wants future medical students should have. Due to this, a group setting would facilitate deeper and more meaningful discussions due to the variation in thoughts and points that would be raised.
