    Anyone know what the rough cut offs are for GEM? Know they're higher than Undergrad med so not really sure where I stand:
    VR - 630
    QR - 780
    AR - 770

    Average: 727

    Never sat UKCAT before and seeing numbers on here I have on idea if that's good or bad?

    Cheers guys and congrats on everyones results

    Just did my test!

    VR- 640
    QR-900
    AR-730
    Band 1
    Average- 757

    First of all, I would like to thank everyone on this thread for giving me so much useful advice and tips. This thread has been my go-to place whenever I had a problem.

    ADVICE:
    VR the same as the official tests, with loads of inference questions. The questions weren't necessary long(about the same as medify) but the difficulty of actually findin the answer or the keyword was much more difficult than medify or Kaplan.

    AR was about the same as Kaplan but easier than medify, only because there weren't any complex patterns or patterns like "black shapes count double"( at least I think there wasn't).

    QR was challenging as there werent many clear cut answers, but the overall difficulty was like year 9 standard. I worked EXTREMELY quickly and still only had a minute left.

    I don't know what to say about sj. It was exactly like the practice test but I never got band 1 before.

    Resources: Kaplan 2 day course, 1000Q book(although I only used it for a day), medify.
    I did about a months practice but I only started revising heavily 2 weeks before the exam.

    Sorry for the long post but I hope this was useful!

    I'll be posting all of my mock scores later.

    Averages can obviously change so can't say for certain. Id avoid kings and Newcastle with that. You should stand a chance at Barts, Southampton and Warwick

    Hey guys!! I just did my UKCAT I go Avg of 716 Im happy with that

    VR - 610 (hard as expected but also im bad at it)
    QR - 890 (this section saved me)
    AR- 650 (I got THE WORST patterns, they were all hard and i didnt understand any of them fully so i dunno how I even got 650 tbh. The only simple pattern there was i missed it cuz of panic. So im annoyed at this section but i know I shouldnt be too disheartened as its a little down to luck and i picked the short straw here
    SJ-BAND 1, really happy about this.

    So is there anywhere I should avoid applying?
    I wanted to apply to southhampton, Birmingham, Cardiff and not sure about the other :/ I have 9A*'s and 1A at GCSE and got AAAA in as levels.
    Thanks guys and good luck

    Did the test today!

    VR - 700
    QR - 710
    AR - 770
    SJT- Band 2

    Average - 727

    Thanks to everyone on TSR. Such helpful advice.
    Messed up on timing in QR in actual test.
    Resources used - Medify (very useful), Kaplan self study course (not that useful) and did Official mocks.
    Practise in timed conditions!!! Did medify, Kaplan and official mocks and still ended up guessing 3-15 questions in all 3 sections in the actual test as I ran out of time. Anyway happy with my score
    Good luck to all!

    Thanks for the replies, just wanted to check that it wasn't really bad to not be getting full marks as I haven't done a mock yet so I'm still clueless 😸

    anyone who has medify and done the mocks,
    does it tell you what score you got and what banding?? just wondered before taking a mock, if it doesnt tell you how did you work out your score for situational judgment

    Yeh it tells you the score. Usually a bit lower than the usual method people use but seems to be in the same area
