Free UKCAT Resources: Free UKCAT Practice Tests, study guides and more

They say the best thing in life are free, the same goes for UKCAT resources. Every year I compile a comprehensive list of free UKCAT resources available on the internet and share them here on this page. This page is updated before the exam cycle to bring you a complete list of free resources to prepare for the UKCAT – saving you time sourcing it yourself.

I’ve spent a total of 10 hours compiling and reviewing each website to make sure they are up to standard to prepare for the exam. I cover everything from free study guides, UKCAT practice questions to mock exams.

If you come across any other amazing free resource that’s not included below, please do get in touch, I will review it immediately and add it on if it is suitable.
