    Your inbox was full so Im just gonna post it here.

    Hey there! Sorry about the long reply, its just with exams etc i havent been on much! What are you applying for? I applied for medicine and got 680 but I definately think the UKCAT is one of the hardest bits of the whole process. Saying that I got 4 interviews from my score and 3 offers. Hmmm....I did mine at the end of August...I personally thought this was best because it gives you time to concentrate on your personal statement and UCAS application from then on. I would advise doing a little bit each day over summer and youll notice that you gradually get better. I got the 600Q book which is quite a lot harder than the actual thing (esp maths) but it was good. The test at the back is so much harder but scares you into working at it more. I also signed up for an online practice UKCAT website...i dunno how good it was....it was alot easier than the actual thing but good at getting me used to the computer!

    TIPS

    get familiar with your computers calculator ie shortcuts such as * for multiply and / for divide, saves you time rather than pushing individual buttons on the calculator onscreen. use the keypad to control the calculator

    do a little bit each day gradually increasing

    write down what the symbols stand for in the code breaking ones

    practice is best for abstract

    I forget what the website was called

    But concentrate on your exams now and get the best you can

    I know how much you want this...its really hard and causes a lot of worry but youll get there! Good luck

    Oh and enjoy your gap year...its probably a blessing in disguise you should totally go travelling and all before you start uni!
