Our online course is specially tailored from our classroom course to benefit students that prefer to study on their own, or are unable to take one of our Classroom or Live online course options. This is also a great option if you are looking for more thorough and up to date preparation than UKCAT prep books.
Our Self Study Course includes:
Free live streaming of extra UKCAT sessions and Medical School preparation guidance from a range of Kaplan experts, including practicing doctors, current medical students, and admissions guidance representatives. Over 20 hours of live instruction, also recorded for access whenever you want.
You will be provided with the recorded lesson videos of your course. These will help you to recap on anything you need to review, as you work through your practice materials.
All students will receive a 1 hour recorded video lesson outlining this new section of the exam. We will guide you through the different question and the Kaplan methods and strategies designed to approach them, through worked examples and sample questions.
You will have access to 6 online practice tests that will increase your familiarity with UKCAT exam questions and build your testing stamina. All our tests can be adapted to fit additional time required by students taking UKCATSEN.
You will receive 500 mastery practice questions. These will help you practice each of the Kaplan methods in an un-timed format, helping you work on your general understanding of the material, before you work on your timed practice.
Structure your practice with 30 quizzes: 6 quizzes for each assessed section of the UKCAT with over 700 questions. You will be able to sharpen your skills on specific test sections in order to improve your overall score.
Instantly track your progress on your practice tests and quizzes, view your average pace, performance by question type and access detailed explanations for every question. Your home screen will provide your test statistics for instant retrieval.
You will have access to your online study materials for 2 months after your course has finished. This should give you more than enough time to work through the material before your test, although extensions are available if you would like additional access.

What's the difference between the Self Study and the live course options?
The Self Study course covers the same material as the live course options. However, it consists of online video content instead of live teacher instruction. The Self-Study course offers greater flexibility for study, as you can access it 24/7. However, it requires more independent study, as you would not interact with Kaplan teachers.
All courses, however, come with the complete suite of online practice tests, questions and quizzes; including score reports and detailed explanations.
When will my 2 months' access period start?
You can choose when to start your 2 months' access period (earliest start date available from June 01, 2018) and will have the option to extend your course access, should you feel that you need more time to review the material and work through the practice content.
Please Note: All students' access will expire after the final UKCAT test date, so sign up early and make the most of your access.
