Course reviews from former Kaplan students

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

As I was the only student at my school sitting the UCAT, 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 UCAT 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 UCAT 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 UCAT (UKCAT).”

Rupert took the UCAT 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 UCAT (UKCAT)"

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

Charlotte P : "Strategies to overcome really difficult questions"

Charlotte was recommended our UCAT (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 UCAT (UKCAT) I'll have the right stategies and know what to do"

Cherry-Jade appreciates the importance of a high UCAT (UKCAT) score as part of a good medical application. She decided to take the Kaplan UCAT 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 took the UCATSEN (UKCATSEN) and found it particularly useful that the teacher was able to adapt the course content so that no student was left behind.

Sambhavi Kumar, 2018 UCAT (UKCAT) Student, scored 3220, Band 2

I found Kaplan very helpful and definitely could not have scored as highly as I did without it. The classroom course was really well delivered, engaging throughout and quite motivating as well.

The online resources were also very good for practise and were brilliant for familiarising myself with the test format.

Shavanni scored an average of 743 on the UKCAT and band 2 for situational judgment.

"Thanks to Kaplan I had lots of practice and online resources - I felt much more confident going in to the exam"

Victoria scored 840 on the UKCAT with band 1 in situational judgment.

"I found Kaplan's realistic practice tests and comprehensive answer explanations incredibly helpful as they helped me learn from my mistakes and build up my confidence"
