    Te UKCAT test features a new section known as the decision making section. If this score doesnt contribute to my overall result can i just not revise for the section, Ignore it and use the time as a chilled break? or will i get penalised?

    You won't get penalised. If you want to use that time to take a break, feel free.

    You won't get the score for that section and neither will universities whether you choose to complete it or not.

    Might be worth doing it properly (but in a chilled fashion), just in case (God forbid) you have to do it next year. And even if you don't, if it's included in next year's exam and kids in the year below ask you for tips etc, you'll be able to help them out
