UCAT ONLINE TUTORING 99TH PERCENTILE (SCORE 3250) 99.80 ATAR STUDENT

Sydney tutor in UCAT

ONLINE CLASSES AVAILABLE!

Hi there! My name is Phillip and I have just graduated from Sydney Boys High School, having just finished my HSC exam. My UCAT exam was completed in July, in which I obtained a score of 3250, in the 99th Percentile (top 1%). In addition, I have received an ATAR of 99.80.

From my UCAT score and ATAR, I have received Medicine Interviews from the University of New South Wales, Western Sydney University, University of Adelaide and the University of Newcastle. I am currently attending at the Bachelor of Medical Studies/Doctor of Medicine Program at the University of New South Wales. I have had significant experience in tutoring, having participated in teaching initiatives in school, and tutoring numerous other students in Mathematics and English.

Why Prepare Now?

Though the UCAT seems like another ordinary test, the skills in each section are vastly different from textbook learning, requiring intuition and general aptitude. These abilities are not quickly learned over a few weeks, but instead over many months of repeated practice for familiarity, beginning with the right approach to be further applied fluently in an exam.

Even my own preparation for my UCAT exam was not done over a few weeks, but instead over many months of consistent practice to perfect my exam technique. I also had some luck – as a child, I was interested in logic puzzles and numerical games, which developed skills paramount in my UCAT exam over many years. Therefore, UCAT Tutoring must be begun ASAP, to instil intuition and skills which will maximise exam performance.

Why Learn From Me?

In addition to scoring in the highest percentile in the UCAT (99th percentile), I have many efficient approaches to maximise a student’s exam score. Furthermore, as one of the very few students with first-hand experience of this new exam, I have numerous resources that I have obtained from the official UCAT test itself. I also have personal resources combined with those of other top scorers to provide material accurately mirroring the exam. This cannot be offered by other older tutors and centres, them having no first-hand experience or knowledge of the resources or exam itself.

Furthermore, my teaching is unique to the generic style of other tutors and centres. My lessons will teach intuitive approaches to solving questions with techniques that I have personally achieved success with. I will also provide logic and numerical puzzles utilised in my childhood to develop my intuition and aptitude for the test. My lesson will be structured from what I have found to be successful throughout school and tutoring.

Most importantly, my students’ success comes first. As a student myself, I understand that students may not ask questions to not disrupt the class or embarrass themselves. Therefore, students can message me with questions anytime with a fast reply. Students can stay back after and ask me any extra questions, or place them in an anonymous box.

Lesson Structure (2hr 30 min. Bilateral teaching, with two sections taught a week. Verbal Reasoning and Decision Making is alternated with Quantitative Reasoning and Abstract Reasoning in the other week).

First 15 minutes: Quiz with questions from all sections with real UCAT timing, marked for students to keep.

Next 15: Quiz explanation with answers and detailed solutions.

Next 50: Verbal Reasoning/Quantitative Reasoning. Techniques will be taught over many lessons, with exam-like questions being provided and explained, referencing the techniques taught and their application in the question. Various question types will be repeated to ensure optimal learning, with extra time for intuitive learning.

Next 10: Break.

Next 50: Decision Making/Abstract Reasoning.

Next 10: Situational Judgement.

Times may vary depending on student requests and explanation times.

Lesson Days: Most days, depending on the time. Send me a message!
