just took it today!
and i'm gutted. my average is 572.5 which sucks hard
i don't know what to do... my choices were:
UCL,
Kings,
St. George's
Queen Mary
I think I should forget about queen mary now, what do you lot think? please i'm sooo sad and worried
My average is 552.5! I screwed up the abstract reasoning bit.... I guess it was the score I would have otherwise expected since I did not do too much preparation for it. I merely looked at the practice questions on other sites (psychiometeric tests) but not in UKCAT format!

Too many words and got a bit frustrated in the middle of the exam...

I'm applying to Keele, QMUL, St. George and Manchester. Think I stand a chance....? Please be honest, thanks!

Queen Mary's upped their cut-off this year, or so I heard.

Everybody who didn't get 600+, I think you should relax... Don't slip into despair yet, this is only the beginning! The UKCAT is one part (the newest and, as we saw last year, least reliable part) of a list of criteria that medical admissions look for. I really don't think it is the end just because it isn't what you had hoped! 500-700 is the MEAN of everybody's averages - what is that called, is that called the mode? Anyway.. - Anywhere in that region makes you average, so just make the rest of the application as great as you can. But also be realistic, meaning don't go for a notorious cut-off uni like QMUL if you have a score circa 500. I'm not pretending to be an expert at all, but I just hope that nobody would take that risk if there are other unis they might be more suited to, that they can see themselves at in Sept 09?

I don't know.

Just did my UKCAT and got
540/740/740/750

I was wondering if the universities are given an average of the readings or are they given all four of them sepreately?
In addition are there particular universitys which put a greater weighting on the UKCAT?

Search the forums, read my good friend, read.... These questions have been answered many a-billion times...

Congrats on the score! Interesting to note VR has been the lowest for lots of people. Doesn't make me feel any better, but I like to ignore it, for the sake of my own sanity

It's only a small part of your application and I'm sure you still have a great chance. I fear we have to rely on chance to a certain degree! And you're welcome.
can i PM you? It is something about P.S

no, i know the scores are very good. I was just wondering whether the cut off by unis was on the average or seperate sections. If so, will 620 in AR be a problem?

No. It's only Leicester that do that...and for the lowest, 620 is still high. Newcastle will love your UKCAT score.

I got 675 on average.
I was really annoyed with the first section. I usually do alright in it. I guess I got too worked up.

Break down:
VR = 510 :s
QR = 610 :/
AR = 870
DA = 710

Well the average for each section is 600, so you're not massively below the average, and they're not even too sure how much it reflects how you'll do at university yet so I wouldn't worry.

Good Luck!

those choices are fine...bristol and liverpool dont use it and aberdeen place only 4% weighting on it which is also good. manchester rank everyones ukcat and interview the top X scorers...which could possibly pose a problem for you...but who knows maybe the top X might range from your score upwards. im certainly taking that risk anyway.
