Course Curriculum

Abstract Reasoning

In Abstract Reasoning Concept Class, students will learn how to infer relationships from information by convergent and divergent thinking and redirect a line of thought.

In this section there are four different types of questions:

  • Type 1: You will be presented with two sets of shapes labelled “Set A” and “Set B”. will be given a test shape and asked to decide whether the test shape belongs to Set A, Set B or Neither.
  • Type 2: You will be presented with a series of shapes. You will be asked to select the next shape in the series.
  • Type 3: You will be presented with a statement, involving a group of shapes. You will be asked to determine which shape completes the statement.
  • Type 4: You will be presented with two sets of shapes labelled “Set A” and “ Set B”. You will be asked to select which of the four response options belongs to Set A or Set B.

Verbal Reasoning

The Verbal Reasoning concept class help students to be very discerning in order to understand what information the passage gives them. Our experts will teach students how to tackle various types of questions tested in the UCAT Verbal Reasoning section of the exam.

Sample Question

In the following passage, read only the beginning and the end of each paragraph.

Even older retired people are feeling the pinch of financial uncertainty and golf is once again seen as a luxury that people can live without in order to save money. This is unfortunate as we have a larger population of older people than ever before. If more affordable, golf is a beneficial activity in terms of exercise and social interaction, both of which are so important to an ageing population who may suffer from loneliness and depression.

Which of the following can be inferred from the passage?

  1. Playing golf is now the best exercise for elderly people.
  2. Playing golf is cheaper now than it ever has been.
  3. Fewer people play golf now than have done previously.
  4. More women play golf now than businessmen.

Quantitative Reasoning

For Quantitative Reasoning Concept Class, students will be taught how to tackle questions that tests students on their numerical skills and data interpretation skills, to solve problems. The questions are all information- based; there will be tables, charts, graphs, and/or direct information to be used to solve the questions.

Common Topics include: 

  • Percentages
  • Ratio
  • Rates
  • Statistics
  • Geometry
  • Income Tax
