    Hi, registration for the UKCAT in 2017 starts next May, where you will be able to personally book a date from the 1st July 2017 through to October. However, from September you would have to pay a higher fee. All in all, when you sit your UKCAT is entirely up to you (wouldn't recommend sitting it on results day ) Hope this clears things up

    I recommend two things:
    1. Triage, get into the habit of guessing and going as some question are design to consume time. With QR keep on doing timed questions, slowly you learn to do questions fasters. Some quesiton can be eyeballed.
    2. AR only gets better with time, do as much as you can and learn/write down common pattern you get wrong (ex. Concave vs convex shapes). Top tip keep in mind scans (Shape, colour, arrangement+angle, number and size). With this you can see patterns by eliminating what the two sets are in common, but this can be way too simple for some sets

    Hope this helps, i highly recommend spending 3-4 hours or more from now on, you can be surprised by how much you can improve if you work intensely running up to the exam.
    Thank you I'm planning on doing 2 more mocks one tomoz and thursday I just hope I at least get 600 and a band 1 or 2

    I'd recommend leaving atleast one of them till thursday because the official ukcat ones don't give you scores and you can do them multiple times whereas the medify ones you can't!
    Good luck for yours on friday!
    Mines tomorrow :{}

    Sorry if this is a dumb question, but do the official ukcat ones tell you how many you got right/wrong? And they just won't tell you a ukcat score?

    Your average is very good! Congratulations!

    You should be able to apply to pretty much any university that uses the UKCAT, as long as averages are similar to usual, just avoid the universities that really care about SJT Band, such as Edinburgh.

    They tell you what is right and wrong but you don't receive an actual score. That's for you to calculate on your own!

    Thank You very much for the reassurance it means a lot! I'm hoping that Newcastle cut off will be lower than my average as I really like the uni and am considering applying there.

    Your average has been higher than the cut off every year (except for the year when DM had heavily inflated scores, but that's hopefully irrelevant), so you should be fine for Newcastle

    If you're really worried, wait until the final statistics for the UKCAT come out in early October to make final decisions
