Find out what other Kaplan students thought this year...

Lauren B, a Birmingham Classroom Course Student, scored 3020, Band 3

As I was the only student at my school sitting the UKCAT, I felt I had little help and was concerned about how I would score. I feel taking part in the Kaplan course helped me massively as it provided me with skills and tips to allow me to succeed in the exam and get a score high enough to apply to the University of my choice. I can now happily say I start my Medicine degree at this University in just over a week - this may not have been possible without my help from Kaplan.

Yue W, a Live Online Course Student, scored 3220, Band 1

I really enjoyed the UKCAT prep. It gave me some very useful advice particularly with triaging but the best thing about this course was probably the confidence and reassurance it gave me that it is possible to do well by putting in effort and it's not a game of luck.

Alice S, a London Classroom Course Student, scored 2790, Band 1

Kaplan was fantastic; it gave me the skills to tackle each section in a logical way, but also the teaching and the resources we were given meant that I continued to practice in a productive way. The methods I learnt from Kaplan, and the practice tests, meant I knew exactly what to expect from my UKCAT test and how to approach each question. Without Kaplan, I definitely would have not got the score I did.

Sammy G : "You can see the teaching is actually working."

Sammy was referred to us by a current medical student who took a Kaplan course. She found the Kaplan strategies to be a helpful boost to the prep she did in advance.

Rupert V W: “It’s a great way to kick-off my learning in the UKCAT.”

Rupert took the UKCAT exam last year but didn’t get the high score needed for medical admission. This year he chose to take a Kaplan course based on recommendations, to boost his score.

Arjun M : "I would really recommend it to someone who's deciding to do the UKCAT"

Arjun was struggling with his UKCAT preparation before he learned Kaplan's techniques and strategies as part of his UKCAT course. He really enjoyed the course and recommends it to anyone taking the UKCAT.

Charlotte P : "Strategies to overcome really difficult questions"

Charlotte was recommended our UKCAT course by a friend. She found the Kaplan teacher's experience and advice invaluable over just studying from a book.

Cherry Jade L : "When I go to sit the UKCAT I'll have the right stategies and know what to do"

Cherry-Jade appreciates the importance of a high UKCAT score as part of a good medical application. She decided to take the Kaplan UKCAT course after discovering that many medical students found the test harder than expected, and that the Kaplan course helped them to get a better result.

Ronan L : "What we have been learning in the course is extremely beneficial"

Ronan is taking the UKCATSEN and found it particularly useful that the teacher was able to adapt the course content so that no student was left behind.
