    I'm an Irish student who is hoping to study medicine in the UK next year, and I did my UKCAT at the weekend. I only had 2 weeks notice for it (my careers teacher isn't very informative) so I feel I did not do as well as I could. I have no idea whether my results are good, bad or average (but I'm presuming average at best). I got 680 in Verbal Reasoning, 590 in Quantitative Reasoning (not a fan of maths haha) 660 in Abstract Reasoning and Band 2 for Situational Judgement. I am thinking of applying to Queen's University Belfast, Queen Mary University London, Hull York Medical School and Dundee based on recommendations by a career guidance counsellor. I have predicted grades of 5H1's, 1 H1 off top marks. I have no idea if my choices are suitable for my UKCAT scores or if I'm way off base. Thank you for any help you can give!
