    I haven't registered with UKCAT yet and at the moment the registration page isn't working. Anyone have any ideas on which book/s are the best for revision?
    The best free resource online I've found at the moment is www.ukcathelp.org which has thousands of free questions which have the same time limit as the actual test so its been good practice. Aparently they are releasing a thousand free SJT UKCAT questions for free next week as well so should be an excellent resource!

    Bookwise I'm still not sure which one to go for...there's so many out there. Are there any brand new ones with the new format including SJTs?

    Remember on UCAS there aren't 1st, 2nd, 3rd etc. choices, it's all random. And to get an interview at KCL you need high no. A*s at GCSE and a high UKCAT. I guess interview style is important, but what's more important is that you actually get an interview

    Bear in mind that Warwick is only Grad entry, so unless you have a degree you can't apply there

    Also, KCL love A*s at gcse, so they might not be the best place to apply to

    But everywhere else looks okay as long as you ace your ukcat

    Ah, thanks. I thought the A* GCSE thing was only applicable at Oxford/Birmingham and that it could be combated with high UMS.
    Thanks . I'd probably say that 700 is a score to aim for?

    No unfortunately, with KCL you need high ukcat + lots of a*s at gcse- I have 7, and a ukcat of 690 and I didn't apply as it was too risky.

    Generally if a university says they want something specific, you can't really make up for it with something else, e.g. having 12A*s at gcse means nothing to Newcastle if your ukcat is only 620 or something

    Yeah, aim high! But don't worry if you only get an average score- there are lots of great schools that don't use ukcat as much

    Thanks Jess. I'll probably have to ask more questions on TSR on receipt of my results and UKCAT/BMAT scores. Hope it isn't too over-flooded then!

    This thread is for those applying for Medicine this year, starting uni in 2014, including those starting year 13 in September 2013. For those starting year 12 next, that's the medicine 2015 thread.
