    I am defiantly prepared but I don't feel confident! I'm literally terrified
    Aw! Honestly don't worry about it, just go in there try your best and no matter what happens don't ever doubt your ability to do amazingly well. Good luck!

    Are you applying as an undergraduate or a graduate?

    Hey everyone! I just did the ukcat, I'm pleased with quantitative reasoning and abstract reasoning but verbal reasoning really lowered my average...
    Verbal reasoning: 570
    Quantitative reasoning: 790
    Abstract reasoning: 700
    Situational judgement: Band 3
    Average: 686

    If anyone needs any tips for QR I'm more than happy to help

    By the way, are there any Uni's I should avoid? Because of my SJT and VR in particular? I'm really disappointed with my SJT in particular since I didn't get anything lower than band 2 in all the mocks I've previously done.

    Isnt Medify meant to be easier than the actual exam, though?
    QR is supposed to be much easier than Medify, AR is supposed to be about the same and VR is supposed to be much harder.

    I'd definitely go for Manchester and Newcastle with that score

    Congrats! That's a great score! I think Plymouth have a cut off for every section, but apart front that I don't think anywhere else does. Some unis will give scores for bands- I think East Anglia is one of them, not too sure about any others.
    How did you find it? Did you use any keyboard shortcuts they advised to use on medify in your exam?

    Thank you so much that's really helpful, my parents are a bit apprehensive about my application so I started getting a bit worried too.

    On the ukcat website I didn't know how to erase the calculator, but during decision making I found out that you can just use the backspace to delete everything! Also, C is equivalent to the MRC button, M is for M- and P is for P+. I didn't actually use them but they may be useful for someone else. I also found alt + f for flagging and alt + n to be amazing because they saved so much time.

    Is there a delete button which lets you delete like 1 digit if you type it wrong to save you having to start over??

    I know what you mean Are you planning to apply for Manchester btw? You would easily pass the ukcat cut off with your score. Thanks, I'm not really sure what the MRC button is used for but I do plan to use alt+n and alt+f too

    Unfortunately I couldn't figure that one out, it would've been super useful because I kept making so many errors on the number pad which took up a good 30 seconds of my time.

    I was looking at Southampton so I might apply there, my GCSEs weren't that great, 6a's & 4b's, so I'm trying to avoid GCSE heavy Uni's. I'm not sure how much Manchester look at them but I'll definitely look into it so thanks!
    And I think the MRC button memorises a specific number but tbh I've never needed it, I find it much easier to write in the booklet they provided.

    It was nice of them to provide a booklet for you. Last year my test centre gave me a laminated piece of A4 paper and a pen which I couldn't rub off lol

    Oh okay, were you able to ask for more paper? The booklet had around 6 pages and it was erasable (kind of hard to erase it though) and if we needed more we could ask for it.

    I didn't ask as I didn't want to waste time, I'll ask before I start the test this year though
