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 UCAT prep books.
The UCAT is the new test name for the UKCAT, both tests are identical, and the resources we offer remain completely relevant & test-like for your preparation. Learn More
