UCAT Situational Judgement Tips & Techniques​

Advice & Insight From UCAT Specialists

GMC Guidelines

​There are hundreds of pages of GMC guidelines, and expecting you learn (or even read) all of these is impractical and an inefficient use of your time. Nonetheless, there are a small number of GMC guidelines and concepts which are absolutely essential prior to taking the UCAT examination. Attend a BlackStone Tutors UCAT course, and we’ll highlight all of these key GMC guidelines and principles.

Official v Unofficial Practice

With Situational Judgement being a highly subjective area, my personal opinion as to what is the most important action or consideration is of little importance. Instead, rather than attempting hundreds of unofficial practice questions which may not accurately represent UCAT and GMC policy, restrict your revision in this section to official questions and guidelines.

Additional Official Practice Questions

Situational Judgement is used throughout Medicine from UCAS applications, to foundation training and speciality applications. Make the most of the numerous official Situational Judgement questions (which although may be of a slightly higher level) will offer a far more useful opportunity than non-official resources. Many of these can be freely found with a simple internet search, however students attending our UCAT Courses will receive links to each of these resources.

Appropriateness of Actions v Importance of Considerations

What is the main difference between these two question types? The former focuses on what actions you would/should take whereas the latter attempts to establish what thoughts and principles you would/should prioritise in any given situation. Attend a UCAT Course and we’ll highlight the key principles that should be prioritised and those that are of lesser importance. Finally, always keep in mind, Situational Judgement is about what you should do and not what you would do, or what you have seen being done during work experience.
