Free iCanMed 3-Hr UCAT Workshop - How to Score 3000+ (96th percentile) on the UCAT Exam
Dear Year 11 Students,
If you are planning to sit the UCAT next year this workshop will address all the must-know information you need to effectively prepare. If you want to receive the insights, experience and expertise that will help you get ahead of the competition, this is a workshop that you cannot afford to miss.
Medical and dental schools are continually finding new ways to identify the candidates who are most likely to become successful health professionals in the future. The UCAT (University Clinical Aptitude Test) is the latest addition to the selection process used by thirteen universities in Australia and New Zealand. Some universities weight your UCAT score just as heavily as your ATAR when deciding on final offers, while others won’t even give you an interview offer unless you achieved a UCAT score in the top 10% of the cohort. This means that doing well in the UCAT is a make-or-break for prospective candidates.
In this 3-hour workshop, we will:
- Discuss the methods/formulas that medical and dental schools use to select top candidates
- Highlight all of the critical mistakes that students made when preparing for and sitting the 2019 UCAT
- Offer game-changing strategies that helped almost 400 iCanMed students score 3000+ (96th percentile or above) on the 2019 UCAT
- Sit a mini mock exam that contains questions with the same difficulty, format and style as those found in the official 2019 UCAT
- Teach the correct methods to solve major Section 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5 question types, with a focus on achieving top speeds without compromising accuracy

Walter and Eliza Hall Secondary Schools Work Experience Program
In 2020 the Walter and Eliza Hall Institute will launch a new five-day Secondary School Work Experience Program, running in June and September. These will give students the opportunity to learn about careers in medical research by participating in research activities with our scientific teams. The program also includes group workshops devoted to laboratory safety and skills, research ethics and science communication.
School students aged 15 years and over who are not able to apply for the Secondary School Work Experience Program may directly contact our laboratory heads or heads of our Professional Services teams about undertaking work experience at a mutually convenient time. Please note that positions for work experience placements outside the Secondary School Work Experience Program are very limited, and not all teams will accept students.
Secondary School Work Experience Program
Discover what it is like to be a scientist working in medical research.
In 2020 the Secondary School Work Experience Program will have two intakes, each hosting up to 24 students:
- 22-26 June 2020
- 14-18 September 2020
Students may apply for either or both of the program intake weeks, but successful applicants will only be offered a position for one of the weeks.
Students selected for the program are expected to attend the full week of work experience, approximately 9am-4pm each day. Students will be paid $10/day as part of the program. If accommodation is required during the work experience week (eg for students living outside Melbourne), this should be arranged by the student.
The Secondary School Work Experience Program accepts students in year 10, who are aged 15 years or over on the first day of the program (Monday of the intake week for which you are applying). Students under 15 cannot be accepted.
The Walter and Eliza Hall Institute aims to provide educational opportunities to a range of students. We welcome applications for our Secondary School Work Experience Program from students with diverse backgrounds and life experiences.
