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, 2017) 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 on October 3rd 2017, so sign up early and make the most of your access.
What if I want more Practice tests?
Should you work through the practice content or want access to additional video lessons on the more challenging aspects of the UKCAT exam, we have our UKCAT Plus option - ONLY AVAILABLE TO ENROLED STUDENTS. This supplementary course option provides 3 additional practice tests (all with detailed explanations and score reports) and 5 extra video lessons on the more challenging question types.
