    Just look up the requirements for each Scottish uni to see whether or not they require the BMAT. The BMAT is an entrance exam like the UKCAT but is taken on 2nd of November and some uni's require it instead of the UKCAT

    IMO, the official UKCAT mock 1 has extensive amounts of data in QR, much more than medify - is this comparable to the real thing?

    No I haven't got Medify. I've been trying to prepare just using free resources online, which probably wasn't the best way of preparing seeing as everyone seems to be using medify or Kaplan... How have those mocks gone?

    I have been averaging around 700, first one I got 670 and the second 710. I do not know what to expect man. I am just hoping for 700 and above (fingers crossed).

    Hi everyone
    Just did my first Mock today on medify and I got
    VR:600
    QR:630
    AR:650
    SJ:Band 2
    AVG:627

    Exam is on the 18th August , should I be worried or is this is a decent result?
    Thanks
    That's a good score considering its your first mock, mines on the 18th too! Try out the mocks at a gradual pace and review all the answers at the end of the mock.

    Also, I'd say brush up on your VR quite a bit because the exam has way more comprehension rather than T/F/CT questions. But don't neglect maths and AR.

    Sorry if this sounds ignorant, but what is the uproar about VR?
    No its fine, honestly. Basically, many students have been complaining that VR has been more challenging this year and not truly reflective of the mocks that are available. I, personally, also have experienced this. Thus, I wouldn't be surprised if the averages were to slightly dip. However, don't expect drastic changes

    The table below shows the exchange rates between GBP and various other currencies in a large department store. Exchange rates are prone to constant change due to many different factors.A store offers exclusive exchange rates for their cardholders. Since this is a Credit Card, the store offers a 1.5% bonus which is added to the value of the foreign currency for the same amount of GBP. The only way to exchange from foreign currency to GBP is by cash to cash conversion.The table shows both the standard conversion rates from GBP to the foreign currency, and also back again. For example £1 would equate to €1.189 (EUR), and for $1 (USD) you would get 66.66p back.
    How much does it cost, in GBP, to buy E£3000 (EGP) using cash?
    £357.96
    £364.30
    £24711.70
    £25142.40

    can someone explain why you wouldnt do 3000 x 0.1214 to get the answer?
    Im not 100% sure, what Is the correct method? I would probably do 3000 divided by 8.3808 but not sure why ur way is wrong

    find the key word in each answer choice and skim the text for that word, if you dont find it check the next answer choice, if you take longer than 30 seconds or in your case 40 seconds since you only spend 20 seconds on the shorter qs guess C and move on lol
    why guess C?

    yes but 1 EGP = £0.1214, so why not do 3000 EGP x 0.1214?
    LOL, I had the same question yesterday... It's downright dumb. It should be the same both ways

    You're right but the figures in the table don't go hand in hand for some reason - even though they are supposed to - and I don't know why. If you do 1/0.1214 you are supposed to get the conversion in units/GBP which is 8.2372 however this value isn't on the table... Is this medify or Kaplan?
    medify, i think its because of the number of decimal places given
