Course Features

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:

New UKCAT Channel

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.

10 hours of recorded lesson videos

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.

Decision Making material

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.

6 Practice Tests

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.

500 Mastery Questions

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.

30 Section Focused Quizzes Questions

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.

Personalised reports

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.

2 Months' Access

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.

FAQs

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, 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.

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.
