    I don't know if it was just a lucky draw of the question bank but all my QR were really small tables with like no text to read and tbh most of them were percentage changes!

    I know! I was so thankful because QR was my worst until the day before my test. If it helps I didn't feel ready until the day before but I was really stressed like 3 days before. If you really don't feel ready then it'd probably be better you rebook it but at the end of the day there's only so much practice you can do x

    For those of you who have done the ukcat did you use the keyboard shortcuts they gave on medify (like ctrl + n for next question)? I was wondering if they work in the real thing?

    I can only avg like 645 so u are in a better place than me and im just going to do it and hope for the best. All the mocks that i have done tho that i do bad in its because of silly things like running out of time or not using my practiced techniques, things i know i can change instantly, but each mock seems to be another issue to sort out even if they are easy issues like being stubbon on timming!

    For anyone wanting to know what the VR will look like in the exam, please check out the UKCAT app, the practice questions are very similar to what people have been saying (ie long statements, hard to inference questions and VERY long passages)
    You mean in the official UKCAT site or the phone app? In the phone app I could only find one passage.

    Anyone?
    Just keep practising really intensely and if you feel unready just reschedule I read here that someone was getting a score of like 670 in the medify mocks and in the real thing they got 750.

    I would beg to differ!
    You could realise before taking it that you only want to apply to BMAT universities, therefore you decide to just attend, skip all the questions and get a 300 average to push the average down for others slightly
    Have you done a driving theory test? It's taken in the same place as that.
    But it's in like cubicles, so you only see people right next to you, and even then only if you're trying. The room is quite cold (or at least it was Manchester Piccadilly :lol:) since they have good air conditioning. The only distraction will be people coming in and out, and they do that quietly. You do have headphones that you can put on available to you, but it's up to you if you want to. You have somewhat enough space for the whiteboard and everything else. It's quite a dreary room, I'd say, the only excitement really comes from the actual taking of the test. It has sort of a nervous tension in there I'd say.
    Good luck!
    I'd be eternally grateful to dem humble souls :lovehug:

    For some reason I can only do one quiz which only has one passage and it's the same each time I try it. Where do you click?

    For those that have done the test, is there a mock that is similar to the actual exam. Btw, each year there are three different possible tests, right?

    (My test is tomorrow)

    There are three official mocks on the ukcat website. Not sure what you mean by three different possible tests, as far as I'm aware they have an extremely large question bank and questions are picked randomly so no person will get exactly the same questions.*

    You may need to update the app. It should come up at some point the option to update it. There should be 3 Quizes for each section!
