    Analogue (non-digital) with no alarm.

    Going to start now for ukcat but not seriously, maybe a couple of hours a week. But i'll start properly revising in may. Really don't want to do the GAMSAT haha.
    Talk about it.. I purchased the sample questions from the acer website today to get an idea of the level of science and oh god..! It's got heavy physics and organic chemistry that I did in my A levels 12 years ago.. I've done it before so not rocket science but I could do with not doing it again.. If it's possible. So I want to aim at UKCAT too.. I live in Sheffield and can only apply to unis around home so I'm looking at sheffield, Warwick, Newcastle as priority.. And nottingham using GAMSAT. .
    I'm planning to start now too.. From April.. And build up and give it in June.. You working full time ??

    Respect for the perseverance, how did you fare last time, assuming this is your second sitting?

    :eek:

    omg why?
    I still have some holes in my knowledge. I get calculations for physics and physical chemistry questions wrong sometimes. Also it gives me confidence doing half practice papers. Reminds me of stuff I've forgotten too.

    I'm not sure if I'm just reading the email wrong or what but am I right in thinking we can't leave the test centre at lunch, so I need to bring lunch? I really hope the centre has somewhere I can get a coffee, I can't go that long without one!

    We can leave. It just doesn't guarantee food will be there.

    I'm going to take a wrap and loads of snacks. Thinking about red bull but caffeine and my bladder don't go well together lmao and my stomach usually doesn't agree.

    Good luck everyone!

    If you're at the London one there will be coffee shops and all that jazz around. When I took it in September they let people leave. Many people ate their food on the steps outside.

    They have my deepest sympathies. Going to stop revising and watch old GBBO episodes to feel better

    Well that was a joke.

    My back/neck was killing me throughout, unsure if it was the seats or just me. S3 was so boring this time, I found myself re-reading some passages 2-3 times. Wrote utter trite for S2 again.

    See ya in Sept, lol.
