    To be honest, I am not sure if read question first then scan works for everyone. I have ADHD and it is very distracting for me to scan, as this requires that my attention shift extremely fast from sentence to sentence and I end up looking around the text without actually taking in the meaning. Many dyslexic people have some trouble, or people that are not good inn scanning anyway. What I do is I read the whole text very concentrated but fast, I use the cursor to move across the sentences to keepp my focus and pace and then I find that I have retained the info and can answer questions much faster, and very rarely need go back and if I do need go back in the text, I remember much better where I read the relevant info. That is for verbal reasoning. For quantitative now I read question first and then go to table as I need know what I am looking for. For abstract def see sets first then go to question. Cuz the point is to get the right pattern then questions can all be answered in 2-3 seconds each if you know pattern. idk hope this helps you, as I tried the scanning and I failed last year got 590 in VR it def does not work for anyone.
    Are you done with your exam?

    Are you noting these scores down? :lolwut:

    I can't be bothered to remember any mock scores! Then again, you're averaging 700s. Wait, so am I... sometimes. Nvm :banghead:

    Thank you so much!! Good luck with you application! Except of medify, what else did you use to revise?
    The only other resources i used was the ISC 1000 Qs, but i only really used it for the tips after a while because the questions were just horrific.

    Keep your cool in the exam and you'll be fine

    I personally didn't find it to be awful, but i did well in it.

    VR is always a bit iffy, but i didn't particularly notice much of a jump in difficulty from Medify, but i was probably too focused to care about that. This was my worst section, but i wasnt surprised by that.

    DM is just a bit weird, and there was way too much time for it. I finished with over 5 minutes to go. I find it difficult to explain what it was like, since there was such a mix of questions. But similar questions seemed to be grouped together. This is when I started noticing that it was actually quite cold in the room, which was somewhat nice considering it was one of the hottest days of the year outside, but bring a jumper in case you get too cold, because it does start to distract you.

    QR i didn't find too bad either, the timing was fine for me, even though i did get stuck on a few questions. If you do get stuck, just guess it, flag it and move right on. I was helped in this section by the fact that i am naturally good at maths, so i guess i felt quite confident for it. I always knew i could get the score i did get. This was my highest score.

    AR was decent, i was used to it at this point and there was only two or three questions that really threw me off (i still don't know what those triangles were :lol: ) , but it went quite quickly and i just enjoyed it

    SJT is the same as Medify. The marking is better for it though, i think. I hate SJT because it feels like you have to much time and i always start doubting my answers, but i managed get band 1 so I'm fine

    When doing the exam, use the shortcuts and don't be afraid to guess an answer, it to flag an answer and move on. The flag function is an actual life saver!
    How did VR comapare to the offical mocks?
