    For the quantitative reasoning is it better to look at the data or the question first?
    I would say the question first so you know what to look for in the data. Good luck!

    To any aspiring or successful medics I would like to know how to prepare for this UKCAT business. Time is of the essence and there is no room for failure. Also what is the BMAT? Hella confused about what is actually required for Med school specifically. Does one have to do both tests? Thanky and Dieu vous bénissez.

    First of all, UKCAT it is an entry requirements for most of the universities in The UK for medicine and dentistry. You can prepare by doing the practice give on the official site for free: http://practice.ukcat.ac.uk - you have 3 mock tests which I suggest you leave till you have practiced each section. Secondly, you can buy online material to help for revision. I used Medify, there is also one called Kaplan. I am not sure about the others. These are online services, you have to pay for.

    BMAT is the BioMedical Admissions Test (BMAT) is an admissions test for applicants to Medicine, Veterinary Medicine, Biomedical Science and Dentistry courses at certain universities like Imperial College, UCL, Oxford, Cambridge and a few others.

    You do not have to do both tests. It depends on which university you want to go to. You do the UKCAT from July - October. BMAT you do in November (I think). So you would do the BMAT if you wanted to apply to the universities mentioned above. You do not have to do both exams. Hoped this helped

    Why thank you for such a quick and thorough response. I'll be sure to check out the mocks on the website. Is there any other means to practice the sections without having to purchase stuff? If not its not a problem. Just trying to be economical.

    Depends on the universities you want to apply for Some unis require the BMAT and others the UKCAT. Check the unis you have in mind and what they want so you know which ones you have to take!

    To prepare for the UKCAT, first go on their website and read about the sections so you know what they consist of. Then buy a 1 month subscription on medify.com's ukcat course it is amazing and has really helped a lot of people. Then just practice practice practice and you will see improvement!

    Not sure about the BMAT yet but from what I gather, it has three sections. Section 1 is similar to the UKCAT (no knowledge just aptitude) so your UKCAT revision will help you there. Section 2 is like an extra hard GCSE science and maths paper so need to learn all that again, and Section 3 is a science related essay to write!

    Mine is not until September 5th so 26 days I think? Fairly chill. You will do great dw those scores you got in mocks are like top percentile in all Uni's practically and you still have more than a week left

    I want to get 700 plus ideally 750 as really like Kings but scared I will plateau before the test

    Try scanning through the answers first and instead of diving in looking for the first option see Which one sounds most like it could be correct and is reasonable then scan for that; that's what I have been doing, most of the time the first or second scan is right as one or two are normally ridiculous and couldn't be right. It saves a lot of time
    Thank you, i will try this

    Ive just completed one of the mocks on the UKCAT website. For situational judgement i scored 38/69, i know this is a poor score but this was the first mock test i have completed. Any idea how to calculate what banding this score would lie in as i have been using the kaplan score sheet for the other sections but cannot find any recourses to score my SJ. Thanks
