I'm a curious and ambitious medical student and teacher!

Hi! There is no such thing as a 'perfect' statement in my opinion - it needs to be very personal and reflective. For the UKCAT, the best way to ace it is practice practi practice! The more you practice, the more you understand how the questions work and you become faster.

There is no such thing as a perfect personal statement. You can only write one that is best suited to your personal experiences and understanding of your subject. You will probably have to redraft your personal statement many times based on feedback from teachers etc and thatโ€™s okay. Just write something that conveys your passion and desire to study your subject, highlights your previous experiences and shows an insight into your personality. With the UKCAT you must practise, practise, practise. There are sample questions and papers that you can get that give you insight into the type of questions asked. The more you do especially under timed conditions, the more confident you will get. I hope this helps.
