從上圖可見,由2019年開始UCAT分數線一直持續上升,反映市場對醫學和牙科學位的需求增加,所以越來越多人參加UCAT考試,而且申請人的整體水平亦越來越高,意味著每年競爭將更加激烈,申請人需達到更高的分數才可獲得醫科學額。因此,考生需更加努力準備,以確保自己取得2800以上的分數。

UCAT 最難應付的是什麼?

UCAT作為醫學院入學的標準測試,確實是一項相當有挑戰性的考驗。作答時間緊迫,即使有充分的知識基礎,但要在極短的時間內正確解答各類問題,對考生的應變能力有著極高要求。

UCAT各測試部分的難度是什麼?

在UCAT中,考生需要應對多個不同類型的測試,每一項都有其獨特的難題,以下是各項測試的特點及難處:

  • 語言推理 Verbal Reasoning: 考生需在極短時間內解讀和評估大量書面信息,難度在於如何有效率地捕捉主要信息。
  • 決策分析 Decision Making: 這部分考驗學生的邏輯思維和對數據的分析能力,難度在於如何在複雜的情境下作出合理的評估及提出觀點並得出結論。
  • 數量推理 Quantitative Reasoning: 這一部分需要考生運用數學來解決問題,並需在指定時間內完成,當中涉及複雜的計算和巧妙的數學推理。
  • 抽象歸納 Abstract Reasoning: 考生需要推斷出抽象信息中的關係,需要敏銳的觀察力和邏輯思維,以理解和應對不同形式的抽象信息。
  • 情境判斷 Situational Judgement: 考生需要在現實世界的情境中作出道德和倫理上的決策。面臨複雜的道德困境時,考生需要適當地回應,並在考試的時間限制內做出正確判斷。

為什麼UCAT分數這麼重要?

UCAT之所以難獲得高分,主要是因為醫學院的競爭非常激烈。每年眾多學生競相申請,而UCAT就成為區分學生能力的工具。獲取高分不僅代表知識層面達一定水準,更意味著能在極短時間內能高效解決問題。因此,UCAT考獲佳績成為學生在眾多申請人中脫穎而出的重要指標。

獲得高分確實是一項具有挑戰性的任務,但絕非mission impossible。關鍵在於備考過程和掌握良好的應試技巧。透過充分的練習、專業的指導以及時間管理,考生能保持正面積極的心態應對UCAT的考試壓力,從而提高解題效率,最終取得令人矚目的分數。

如何獲得2800分或以上? UCAT考試準備技巧

1. 練習、練習、再練習

這是成功的不變法則! 大量UCAT練習題、歷屆考試題目和模擬考試,熟悉考試形式、題型和正向面對時間壓力。越早預備,越多練習,便能在實際考試中越快適應和作答。

2. 掌握各個測試部分

每個 UCAT 測試部分(語言推理、決策分析、數量推理、抽象歸納及情境判斷)都有其獨特的要求與考核內容,考生要花大量時間理解每個部分的細微差別,並制定有效的解題策略。

3. 時間管理是關鍵

時間壓力是UCAT的一個重大挑戰,需練習如何快速準確地回答問題,制定一個合理的時間管理策略,為每個部分分配適當的時間,是考獲高分不能忽視的重點之一。

4. 模擬考試至關重要

在真實的考試環境下進行限時模擬考試是UCAT準備過程中至關重要的一步,幫助您找出需要改進的地方,並增强自信心。

5. 分析每次練習的表現

每次練習和模擬考試後,都要花時間分析表現,找出您擅長的地方和需要進步的地方。

6. 準備有效的應試策略

運用估計、排除法和利用答案選項來作答問題,顯著提高您的效率和準確性。

過往考得2800分或以上的同學有何相同特質/性格?

UCAT是一項涵蓋多個學科領域的綜合性考試,包括推理、分析、問題解決和批判性思維等。首先,學習能力至關重要。這不單指快速理解和高效吸收新知識的能力,還包括組織和管理學習時間。許多取得高分的同學都善於利用各種學習工具和資源,如筆記和模擬試題,提高學習效率。

其次,自律是不可或缺的。高分同學通常擁有強大的自我控制力,專注於學習。UCAT不僅考驗學生的知識基礎,還考驗其邏輯思維和問題解決能力。高分同學通常能夠迅速分析問題,找到關鍵,然後解答。

具體來說,考2800分以上的同學通常具有以下素質:

  • 上課認真聽講,並積極思考問題
  • 課後主動複習,做好筆記
  • 利用課餘時間進行自主學習,擴充知識面
  • 參加各種學術活動,提升自己的學術水平

在性格方面,他們通常有以下特質:

  • 自信心強,對自己有一定的要求
  • 責任心強,能夠承擔起自己的學業負擔
  • 積極樂觀,能夠在逆境中保持良好的心態

當然,並不是所有考取2800分的同學都具備以上所有特質,但這些特質是他們取得成功的重要因素。此外,考取2800分還需要一定的運氣,加上資深導師教導,才可將效果最大化!

UCAT答題時間控制技巧

UCAT的答題時間控制技巧對於非英文母語的學生來說可能是一項挑戰,因為試卷題量龐大,時間緊迫,尤其是在語言推理 Verbal Reasoning的部分,需要閱讀大量文字(11篇200-300字的文章),每題平均只有28秒的作答時間。學生需要練習速讀,以快速獲取文章的關鍵資訊。要注意,如果需要重新閱讀,將會浪費寶貴的時間!

另一個很好的建議是,在解決語言推理True/False/Can’t Tell的問題時,應該先閱讀問題,然後掃描文章以尋找關鍵字,而不是先閱讀整篇文章。此外,還要記住有可能是答案的重點資料,例如文中的日期、數據,都可能是關鍵訊息!學生應該有計畫地進行針對性的練習,了解自己哪裡出錯,避免不斷重複書本中的UCAT問題的應試策略,因為這樣容易陷入相同的錯誤而未能從中吸取教訓。

另外,花時間找出犯錯的原因也非常重要。總括來說,透過速讀、針對性的練習和高效的時間管理,都可以在UCAT的VR部分取得更好的成績。此外,數量推理、抽象歸納、決策分析和情境判斷等部分同樣需在有限的時間內完成,學生必須具備出色的時間管理和解題技巧。

  • 數量推理 Quantitative reasoning:36題 25分鐘作答36題
  • 抽象歸納  Abstract reasoning:50題 12分鐘作答50題 
  • 語言推理 Verbal reasoning:44題 21分鐘作答44題
  • 決策分析 Decision making:29題 31分鐘作答29題
  • 情境判斷 Situation Judgement:69題 26分鐘作答69題

說起英語水平測試,相信大家最耳熟能詳的有IELTS、TOEFL、TOEIC等。但如果有意讓小朋友到澳洲升學,就必須要了解與「AEAS考試」相關的事宜。 關於AEAS  AEAS是專為打算到澳洲修讀中小學的海外學生而設計的綜合測驗。自 1985 年以來,AEAS 一直是評估國際學生水平的標準,在澳洲墨爾本、中國北京和香港均設有分部。 AEAS提供一系列服務,包括考試、模擬考試、備試課程、市場營銷和各種與應試相關的活動。近 40 年來,AEAS憑藉可靠、準確、有效和嚴密的現場考試服務,贏得了澳洲各學校的信賴,致力為應考學生提供高品質的評估體驗。 AEAS與所有利益相關者 (學校、教育機構、政府、家庭和學生) 建立了牢固的合作關係,共同促進國際教育的發展。 為什麼要考AEAS? 什麼時候考?  注意:學生於三個月內不可重考 AEAS 教育評審測驗的範圍包括 學生將根據他們的年齡及報讀年級進行測驗,例如現正修讀Year 9的學生,將參加Years 10-12的英語測驗;而準備申請明年Year 10的學生,將參加Year 10的數學和綜合能力測驗。AEAS考試不設「Pass or Fail」的評分結果,旨在準確地反映學生能否應付全英語學習環境的能力。 英語水平 考試內容 - 準備報讀Years 10-12 考試內容 - 準備報讀Years 7-9(形式與Years 10-12相近) 考試內容 - 準備報讀Years 4-6 (形式與Years 7-9相近) 數學推理能力 測驗以選擇題形式進行,需時45分鐘。考卷根據不同年級而設,旨在評估學生的數學推理能力。 測驗期間,學生可使用計算機和印刷版字典,現場嚴禁使用手提電話及其他電子設備。(註:計算機和字典不適用於英語水平測驗,故學生必須將這些物品存放於考試場外。) 非文字綜合能力 測驗以選擇題形式進行,測驗需時30分鐘,旨在評估學生的綜合能力水平,測驗分數準確地反映學生的智力水平。 報名手績 除了澳洲,AEAS評審測驗已於全球超過25個國家舉行,包括中國、香港、印尼、日  本、韓國、馬來西亞、新加坡、台灣、泰國和越南等地。測驗中心名單詳見https://www.aeas.com.au/how-to-register/。 考試當日應備物品 AEAS評估報告 AEAS教育評審測驗報告提供以下資料: 學校在審批申請時,將參考報告提供的英語先修課程建議指引,以擬定學生的入學日期,以便他們有充足的時間來強化英語能力,順利融入英語學習環境。校方亦可要求學生在開課前重考,確保他們已達標。 AEAS教育評審測驗報告由AEAS澳洲總辦事處撰寫後發送給: AEAS教育評審測驗報告有效地提供以下優點: 不同學校對英語水平的要求 延伸閱讀: 【英國寄宿中學】UKiset & CAT4 考試全攻略 提升獲牛津、劍橋及G5大學錄取機會的關鍵 香港學生赴英攻讀法律學位指南
【英國寄宿中學】UKiset & CAT4 考試全攻略
英國入學考試是申請英國寄宿學校的第一步,UKiset和CAT4等入學考試則是大家經常聽到的測驗。然而,兩者有什麼分別?學生又是否必需報考這兩個考試?以下是這兩個考試的詳細介紹。 UKiset UKiset (UK Independent Schools’ Entry Test) ,是英國私立寄宿學校專為9至18歲的海外學生而設計的入學測試,主要用來評估申請人的英語水平和學術能力。 目前有過百所英國私立學校將UKiset作為篩選學生 (pre- screening)的首要標準,並作為學生申請英國寄宿學校的第一關。部份寄宿學校甚至會因申請人的UKiset成績優異而直接取錄,豁免入學試 (CAT4)及面試的入學要求。 UKiset是一個約2至2.5小時的電腦測試,成績有效期為一年,主要分為三個部分: 測試 考試內容 限時 Reasoning(推理)  ·       文字邏輯推理·       圖表推理·       數字推理  90分鐘 Cambridge English Test (劍橋英語考試)  ·       閱讀·       聆聽·       英語運用 (詞彙、拼寫及語法)  30分鐘 English Essay Writing (英文寫作)  評估學生的書面英語表達和語文技巧的能力,字數要求根據年齡而有所不同:9-11歲:最少100-150字12-15歲:最少200-250字16-18歲:最少300-350字  30分鐘 UKiset成績計算方式 UKiset與其他考試有所不同,考試題目會根據學生答題的準確度進行調整。舉例,如果學生持續答對題目,後續題目會變得更難,相應地分數也會較高。 UKiset注意事項 CAT4 CAT4(Cognitive Abilities Test)入學試是大部分英國學校的指定入學試,包括寄宿學校、私立學校和部分公立學校,主要針對6至17歲的學生,用於評估學生的認知能力、思考能力和學習潛力。 測試內容主要分為四個範疇:語言測試(Verbal Reasoning)、數學測試(Quantitative Reasoning)、非語言測試(Non-Verbal Reasoning)和空間推理測試(Spatial Reasoning)。題目會以選擇題形式呈現,有關詳細的測試內容可以參考以下資訊: 測試內容 考試內容 限時 語言測試(Verbal Reasoning)   評估語言和文字方面的能力·      詞彙理解·      同義詞·      反義詞·      關聯詞 45分鐘 數學測試(Quantitative Reasoning)  數學和數量推理方面的能力·      數字操作·      數學問題·      數量關係 45分鐘 非語言測試(Non-Verbal Reasoning)  圖像和圖形推理方面的能力·      圖像和圖形推理·      圖形類比、模式識別、空間關係 45分鐘 空間推理測試(Spatial Reasoning)  空間感知和推理方面的能力·      圖像旋轉·      圖像組合·      圖像投影 45分鐘 CAT4注意事項 CAT4模擬試題 語言測試(Verbal Reasoning) 數學測試(Quantitative Reasoning) 非語言測試(Non-Verbal Reasoning) 空間推理測試(Spatial Reasoning) 延伸閱讀: 提升獲牛津、劍橋及G5大學錄取機會的關鍵 香港學生赴英攻讀法律學位指南 【英國 Health Science】實習對申請的重要性
提升獲牛津、劍橋及G5大學錄取機會的關鍵
以下是Oxbridge過往的面試問題,您知道答案嗎? “Why do many animals have stripes?” “Do bankers deserve the pay they receive?”“How important is social interaction in language acquisition?” “Is it ever morally right to kill someone?” 沒有額外的學術課堂加以鍛鍊,一般都很難回答牛劍的面試問題。 要獲得牛津、劍橋及其他英國G5大學的錄取,發展獨特的思維模式至關重要。如果沒有事先接觸這些充滿挑戰性的面試問題,您可能會感到困惑。在這種情況下,Knowledge Building便能派上用場,這種方法能夠加深和擴充與學科相關的知識,為有志之士提供競爭優勢。 Ascent Prep 的 Knowledge Building 三大優勢 1. 訓練學生牛津、劍橋的思維模式 牛劍的面試問題艱深,不會問學生已理解的知識,而是需要學生利用既有知識推敲答案。牛劍重視學生的思路軌跡和思考過程,而並非具體答案。Knowledge Building 所學就是超越中學程度的super-curricular,將會在牛津、劍橋,或是其他G5大學的面試中大派用場。 2. 協助學生選擇合適學科 大學開辦的學科如法律系、物理治療、醫科、工程學等等,大多數學生都未曾在中學階段時有所接觸,因此未必真的了解這些科目到底是學什麼、會否適合自己。 舉例,如果數學成績出眾,應該報讀牛劍的數學系還是物理系呢?Knowledge Building 可協助您深入了解各個學科的知識層面,助您精準確立大學選科目標。 3. 協助學生撰寫深入探討學術議題的Personal Statement 一般學生會在 Personal Statement 解釋為什麼喜歡所選的學科、有什麼過人之處等,但牛劍或其他G5大學不僅僅要求這些,而是期望學生能帶出與學科相關、強烈深入、並具個人見解的學術探討,需要閱讀學術書籍及資料搜集配合完成,而這些正正能從Knowledge Building中,掌握相關主題與學術概念。 Knowledge Building 如何提升面試質素? 以下挑選了兩條過往牛劍的面試問題,由Ascent Prep牛劍背景的導師示範建議答案,以供參考。 Question 1: Do bankers deserve the pay they receive? Suggested Answer Approach: A simple answer might be that since banks are generally private firms and workers are free to work where they wish, then the pay they receive is just the outcome of a competitive labour market. In this story, bankers earn a lot because they are very skilled and have rare talents. It is hard to see a reason for government intervention in this case – though on equity grounds one may want to have a progressive income tax system that redistributes some of this income. Note: A good candidate would wonder why it is that seemingly equivalently talented people can get paid so much more in banking than in other occupations. Do we really […]

Jessie C.
Desire Subject Physiotherapy
Programme Medicine and Allied Health Professions Admissions Preparation Course
Hours Attended 20

From a young age, Jessie was passionate about sports, especially football and competitive jump roping. An injury during a jump roping competition that required physical therapy piqued her interest in the profession. Jessie chose Biology and Chemistry as her subjects, and her predicted DSE scores met the entry requirements. However, she had doubts about her suitability due to her petite stature and introverted nature, fearing these could be obstacles to becoming a physical therapist. Despite Jessie's excellent grades, her father was also concerned about her career choice, worrying that Jessie was blindly following a trend without truly considering her interests and abilities, as choosing this field would mean committing to a career as a physical therapist.

Our education consultant recommended the shadowing program by Ascent Prep, the only official preparation program recognized by AEAS, offering students clinical internship experiences and professional mentorship. Seeing it as an opportunity to resolve her doubts and increase her chances of being admitted to higher-ranking universities, her father enrolled her in the program.

During the shadowing process, she gained in-depth knowledge of a physical therapist's daily duties, including assessing patients, developing treatment plans, and guiding patients through rehabilitation exercises. Though challenging, she found the work meaningful. Throughout this period, Jessie had the opportunity to ask many questions, particularly about her concerns. After completing the shadowing program, her determination to become a physical therapist was strengthened.

When preparing her personal statement, Jessie tried writing it herself but felt it lacked persuasiveness. With her tutor's guidance, she realized many areas needed improvement. The tutor helped her reorganize her experiences volunteering in physical therapy, highlighting her passion and dedication to the field. During interview training, she learned how to showcase her strengths and effectively answer the interviewer's questions. For example, Ascent Prep tutors taught students how to answer common situational questions, such as:

  • What do you think are the basic professional ethics for a physical therapist?
  • How do you view the relationship between physical therapists and their patients?
  • How would you handle conflicts of interest with patients?

Ascent Prep tutors prepared students for these ethical questions and situational challenges to test their problem-solving abilities, such as:

  • How would you deal with a patient unwilling to cooperate with treatment?
  • How would you respond to an emergency during treatment?
  • How do you collaborate with other healthcare professionals?

Ultimately, with Ascent Prep's assistance, Jessie was accepted into the Physical Therapy program at Hong Kong Polytechnic University and also received offers from the University of Nottingham, University of Birmingham, Brunel University, and the University of Salford in the UK. Among these options, she chose the University of Birmingham and was awarded a scholarship for her outstanding performance.

This journey highlights the value of Ascent Prep, offering practical clinical experiences and professional guidance, enabling students to not only improve academically but also to find their direction in their future career paths.

Sophie F.
Desire Subject Architecture
Programme Portfolio Guidance
Hours Attended 10

Sophie is a high school student from Hong Kong who has been passionate about architecture since she was young. She excelled academically and actively participated in various architecture-related activities, such as architectural model competitions and visits. However, as the time for further education approached, Sophie began to feel somewhat lost, due to her very high standards for herself. She knew that to gain admission into architecture programs at prestigious universities like Cambridge or UCL, she needed not only excellent academic grades but also well-rounded abilities and creativity.

By chance, Sophie attended a lecture by Ascent Prep, where the instructors shared their experiences in helping students gain admission to top universities. Ascent Prep introduced her to a mentor who was studying architecture at Cambridge. The mentorship and classes were designed to help students develop a deeper understanding of the subject matter and encouraged Sophie to think critically about the core of architectural studies, enriching her personal statement with diverse elements. In these classes, Sophie learned about architectural history, theory, and design. Her tutor explained complex concepts in an engaging way, making it easy for Sophie to understand.

For instance, during a mock interview, Sophie encountered a challenging question: "What do you think are the professional ethics of an architect?" She had never considered this question before, but with her tutor's guidance, she was able to articulate a well-thought-out answer, boosting her confidence for the actual interview.

The art portfolio is a critical component of university applications, and Sophie's tutor helped her create a portfolio that was both deep and creative. The tutor meticulously guided her through the selection and arrangement of her works, covering her academic research, practical experience, and personal interests. Under the tutor's guidance, Sophie revised her portfolio multiple times, resulting in an impressive collection of work.

Sophie's efforts were rewarded when she was accepted into the Architecture program at the University of Cambridge. Her portfolio showcased her unique understanding of architecture, including a sustainable design proposal that received high praise from her tutor. Moreover, Sophie performed excellently in her university interviews, demonstrating her academic abilities and personal charm.

Sophie's success story is a testament to the effectiveness of the Ascent Prep program, which is dedicated to helping students realize their potential and achieve success in their educational pursuits.

Andy M.
Desire Subject AEAS
Programme Official AEAS Test Preparation Course
Hours Attended 30

Andy attended a local Hong Kong secondary school. Despite having average grades at school, he has always been afraid of English, to the point of hesitating to speak it. Andy is a typical slow starter; when under pressure, he easily feels overwhelmed. This became even more evident after he took the AEAS test unprepared, resulting in scores far below expectations. The AEAS report recommended Andy to undertake an English course for 20-30 weeks, and the substantial cost of attending a 30-week language course in Australia, including tuition, accommodation, and student insurance, caused considerable concern for his parents. Not only were they considering the dual factors of time and finances, but they also hoped that Andy could have more opportunities to apply to his desired schools. That's when they found us, the only official preparatory course institution recognized by AEAS. In the 1-on-1 courses at Ascent Prep, students receive meticulous instruction from teachers and consultants, improving their English skills and gradually overcoming their fear of English. To the parents' surprise, the child performed excellently in the AEAS test. By achieving good results in Hong Kong, the AEAS report reduced the required language class from 30 weeks to just 4 weeks before entering mainstream schools in Australia. This not only saved money but also allowed the child to integrate into the Australian mainstream education system sooner.
