How to Improve Verbal Reasoning for the UCAT

The Verbal Reasoning section of the UCAT (University Clinical Aptitude Test) is one of the most difficult. The questions in this section don’t require any external knowledge but rather solely rely on your ability to comprehend, analyse and make inferences from the information provided. The Verbal Reasoning section is the second shortest with only 21 minutes provided to answer as many of the questions as you can. For this reason, you may want to practise speed reading, knowing when to flag and return to a difficult question, and becoming familiar with the different question types so you know what to expect. You can learn more about the UCAT here, or, even better, get in touch with The Profs’ specialist UCAT Tutors. Our tutors can identify and focus on areas in which you need extra support, such as Verbal Reasoning. They also have insider knowledge of the admissions test and years of experience with the UCAT and the wider biomedical admissions processes.
