UCAT Abstract reasoning practice

Two blocks of 2 by 3 squares, called Set A and Set B. There are then several questions displaying a single box with the question, To which Set does this figure belong, or is it To Neither Set.

First Step – Identifying Set A’s features

 

  • Number

There are 3-4 figures within each square.
Hence, the numbers of figures within each square is unlikely to be part of the overall pattern that unites the six squares in Set A.

  • Size:

There is one large shape and many smaller shapes shown in each of Set A’s squares. The fact that there is one larger shape may be the key to this block of Abstract Reasoning questions.

  • Shape:

The shapes appear to vary quite randomly within each square and across the six squares in Set A. Hence, the shape of figures within each square is unlikely to be part of the overall pattern that unites the six squares in Set A.

  • Colour:

Some of the figures are black and some of the figures are white. However, the largest figure is always coloured white.

  • Position:

The figures appear to be positioned quite randomly within each of Set A’s six squares. Hence this feature is unlikely to be part of the overall pattern that unites the six squares in Set A.

  • Miscellaneous other characteristics:

There are no additional characteristics of the figures in Set A that indicate an underlying pattern across all six squares.

 UCAT Abstract Reasoning Test Practice Part II

Second Step – Identifying Set A’s repeating patternConfirmation that the repeating pattern is that the largest figure is always white in Set A.
Third Step – – Identifying Set B’s features

 

  • Number

There are 2-4 figures within each square.
Hence, the numbers of figures within each square is unlikely to be part of the overall pattern that unites the six squares in Set B.

  • Size:

There is one large shape and 1-3 smaller shapes shown in each square.

  • Shape:

The shapes vary within each square and across the six squares in Set B. Hence, the shape of figures within each square is unlikely to be part of the overall pattern that units the six squares in Set B.

  • Colour:

Some of the figures are black and some of the figures are white. However, the largest figure is always coloured black.

  • Position:

The figures appear to be positioned randomly. Hence this feature is unlikely to be part of the overall pattern that unites the six squares in Set B.

  • Miscellaneous other characteristics:

There are no additional characteristics of the figures in Set B that indicate an underlying pattern across all six squares.

Abstract Reasoning UCAT Test Practice Part III

Fourth Step – Identifying Set B’s Repeating PatternConfirmation that the repeating pattern is that the larger figure is always black in Set B.
Fifth Step – Identifying the theme that Set A and Set B have in commonThe repeating pattern that unites Sets A and B is that the largest figure is always white in Set A and is always black in Set B.

 

Sixth StepThe largest shape in Question 1 is a rectangle. This is coloured white. Hence the correct answer is Set A.
Answer and Reasoning for Example item 2The largest figure in this question is a white arrow, thus the correct answer is (A) for Set A. Please note that Steps 1-5 are only required for the first question in each question block.Sixth Step

 

  • The largest shape in Question 2 is a double-headed arrow. This is coloured white. Hence the correct answer is Set A.

Free UCAT Situational judgement test practice

Firstly, there is no need for medical knowledge, the UCAT SJT scenarios test integrity, team working and several other competencies. Thus, the specific UCAT SJT rationale is to test medical applicants’ understanding of ethics. Plus, other key aptitude areas, such as being able to work in a team and to manage high workloads.

Next, the SJT approach has the advantage of assessing in a fair and face valid way. There has been consistent research evidence demonstrating the high reliability and validity of SJTs over the last 45 years.

UCAT Situational Judgement Test Tips

Here are our tips for the UCAT practice situational judgement test:

– The new UCAT SJT test format means you can give the same rating to all response options. If, for example, two were Inappropriate and two were Appropriate that’s fine.

– Timeframe is very important to the correct answer. Consider how appropriate each response option is to both the short-term and to the long-term.

– Even when there are 4 response options this does not mean that one is Very Appropriate, Appropriate, Inappropriate and Very Inappropriate.

UCAT Verbal reasoning test practice 

Let’s begin with the excellent reading and verbal reasoning skills which all doctors and dentists.  complex medical facts and advice needs to be communicated to patients in a way that can be clearly understood. Plus, doctors and dentists need to understand research papers and to interpret medical findings and recommendations.

UCAT Quantitative reasoning test practice 

So, doctors regularly analyse data presented in medical research statistics. Also, numerical reasoning skills are used to make accurate drug dosages and to manipulate data such as patient weight and height – as well as age-related health risks.

So, doctors review patients’ symptoms together with the results of various tests. Also, a judgement is made on the complex mixture of information sources by focusing on the key information. Thus, the process involves abstract reasoning skills.

Free UCAT Practice – UCAT Decision analysis 

So, the Decision analysis test in the UKCAT assesses the effectiveness of making decisions. Particularly, when information is ambiguous or presented in a confusing way.

Just as a doctor pieces together info from a variety of sources before making a medical diagnosis.

UCAT Verbal Reasoning Subtest Format

First, you need to read the passage very carefully. To gain an understanding of its contents/messages. Then to attempt to answer questions associated with that passage.

Next, each question is a single statement and you will need to decide if that statement is true or false. Hence, the third answer option is to answer that you Cannot Say.
