Dear Medical School Applicant,

They say you can’t prepare for the UKCAT exam as it’s a ‘natural aptitude’ test and there is no knowledge requirement or defined curriculum.

This is not strictly true – the more you practice, the faster you get - and speed is crucial as you are expected to cover 173 questions in 93 minutes. That is about one question every 32 seconds!!

There are multiple passages, tables, graphs, shapes and scenarios to cover as well in this time, so it helps to be familiar with tackling UKCAT questions at a fast pace. Not preparing at all or only using UKCAT practice books will leave you well short of the mark.
