    Defo too low for sheffield unfortunately. You are probably best looking at universities which are not ukcat heavy.

    This is 650 average so have a look at:
    - Birmingham,
    - SGUL
    - QUB
    - liverpool
    - bristol
    - sheffield

    Also have a look at the BMAT schools
    650 is not bad at all!
    I would say no for manxhester they needed 665 last year.

    She has 650, that is above average. Please do your research before going saying this.

    Sheffield want 600 average, it says that on their website!

    Thank you, and if you don't mind me saying I was pretty happy with it myself hehe
    Yes, do try Medify! It's not cheap but it really is worth it. I used it just for the 2 weeks before my test - in fact I think it was a week and a half

    At the moment the plan is to apply to Bristol, Birmingham, Nottingham and Sheffield but I most want to go to Bristol, absolutely loved it! Would have applied to Oxford because I love the city (I go to school there and have lived there my whole life) but it's a bit too close to home and also I don't like the traditional course structure. How about you?
    I also want to apply to Sheffield; it was amazing!! Also Newcastle, St Georges and maybe Kings College if my ukcat is high enough. I don't like traditional courses much either I think I'm leaning towards integrated courses more.

    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 found the QR in the actual test so much easier than on medify

    Nice choices! I looked at KCL too but not a fan of living in London - student debt will be enough for me :P Me too *high five*

    To anyone who has done the UKCAT this year, did you find the QR questions in the exam to be longer or shorter compared to Medify(irrespective of the difficulty of the questions)?

    Thank youuuuuuu!!! It was such a surprise ngl :') a nice one though :P Initially I did a bit from the 1000Q book but in the end I really just used Medify for 2 weeks before the exam though I did do a fair bit each day, ranging from about 2 - 5 hours. I would really recommend Medify as I felt especially in the QR it over prepares you which is a good thing

    What would people reckon is a good score for the UKCAT?

    I did mine today and got 730 (average), however a lot of my friends got a bit higher than me. So i'm faced with the dilemma of choosing whether to apply to UKCAT heavy universities or ones which don't regard it as highly.

    I'd really appreciate somebody else's opinion on this

    Has anyone used Medic portal Ukcat questions?
    If so, are they an accurate representation of how the real exam is going to be like?

    How important is situational judgement? What universities look at it?

    Well I can tell you that Manchester University does not look at situational judgement

    Hi guys,
    I have 12 days left to my UKCAT and frankly, I am absolutely petrified. To begin with I have done very minimal preparation as I have only been using the UKCAT app and have gone through the UKCAT tutorial. I have not done any questions under timed conditions and haven't attempted a full mock. Please could someone help me by suggesting how I can manage these last few days to ensure I achieve a good score aswell as recommend some resources that you think are effective.
    Many thanks.
