    My UKCAT is in 2 weeks. I have now been doing Verbal reasoning for ages now including last year where i only got 460 (yes 460!) I am really worried, how the **** do people get 700+ in VR!? I tried skimming the passage for key words as it says in the kaplan book but i keep flopping especially where there are 4 options for the question! Does anyone have any tips that they find really helpful to maybe achieve 700+?!

    Practice and develop a technique, and that will help massively. For example, I only got an A at Maths GCSE didn't take it for AS, and right now preparing for UKCAT I was struggling, until I practiced developed my own technique now I score around 700+ for practice. With VR I am struggling myself with continual 660's but find a technique and improve.
