    Since there isn't already a thread I thought I'd create one?

    Does anyone know much about the online questionnaire. All I'm getting from their website is it basically tests is your personality it suitable for the course. What format is it?

    The questionnaire isn't too much to worry about. You have to write down the details of any work experience and do some multiple choice, IIRC, personality stuff.

    hmm do we need to have reference letters? or would the details themselves suffice?

    I read from somewhere there doesn't seem to be a cutoff, but they look at individual sections and score them individually? Am confused much

    Is it true that Nottingham reject applicants if their individual UKCAT scores are too wide ranging/sections below 600?? I got 560, 620, 730, 880 so obvs pretty far apart
    Well done with the 880 you must have only got like 2 or 3 answers wrong :eek:

    I havent seen anything about certain scores needed and their website doesnt give many details about how they use the UKCAT, just that theres no cut off........

    Is there a time limit to answer the multiple choice stuff? Are they the same questions for every candidate that year? And what's IIRC? Thanks!

    IIRC stands for "if I recall correctly", because I filled out the questionnaire in 2009. The questions are the same for everyone, as they use your answers to compare you to other people, and there is normally a 1-2 week time limit to fill out the questionnaire.

    After, they will send you a link to it once all of the applications are in.
