    The only Uni which I know has VR as a separate cut off is Warwick. And I don't think 640 is a bad score at all! From what i've read from other comments VR seems to be the weakest area for most candidates.*

    *I would call Warwick and ask for an approx, Im sure they can give you a guideline for their previous years VR cut off.

    Regards your overall then that is great! I know kings look at the overall and the banding for SJT.

    Good luck! I'd be over the moon with a score like that!*

    I thin above 730 overall is a good safe score. Warwick cut off im not so sure about but I cant see the cut off being much higher. :-)

    Yeh, i hope so, but im not feeling confident! Thanks*

    If the 730 cutoff is referring to GEM entry then I couldn't be happier!

    If you're after some last minute prep, there's a Kaplan book available on Amazon, it took me about 3 or 4 days to work my way through it all but it's massively worth it. Really helped me with AR and VR.

    Yes, from previous years 730 is a good score for GEM. For UG 640 is an EXCELLENT score from what I've read in comments.

    I have the Kaplan book. Im a lost cause nothing can help me.

    Was it your 1st attempt at UKCAT? *

    3rd UKCAT attempt, I sat it once back in 2011/12 (can't remember) for UG before getting onto BMedSci

    2nd was last year where I did hopelessly, worse than my first sitting and now this year.

    If it makes you feel any better, i think the major majority of people do much better in the exam, before it I was averaging 550 and band 3, I did the Kaplan online practice test they offer on their site the night before with explanations.. Give that a go, it was a massive help

    Bump. Keep the thread alive!

    If anyone's wondering, TSR's average score stopped dropping about a week ago. We're still a long way from done though, these polls normally have at least twice as many responses as this one does.

    Ditto, My test today. Have always been consistent. QR 430-450, VR 500-550, AR 550-600. I know these scores are no good, but Im still sitting the test so i get a feel for the whole atmosphere and nerves.*

    Good luck!*

    From this poll, if you assume that everyone scored the median of the range they voted. Calculating it the same way from previous years' polls set the average at around 690-695.

    I think it'll be around the same in the end. There still isn't enough people voting (which I find quite surprising!) as previous years.

    Yes it appears they will have skewed up the results too. I'm pretty sure leaving the false 825+ voters will bring the average to about 698ish
