    Hey can someone please tell me if the calculator stays open when you move from question to question?

    Or does it close every time you move to the next question? ( I think that's what the ukcat website said)

    Thanks x
    it closes after every question apparently

    Guys, my test is in a week and I don't have a provisional license yet and my passport has expired and thats going to take a few weeks to renew. Has this happened to anyone else? What do I do? I'm really panicking The website says that for students taking the test in the UK (me), they can get a letter from their college. Has anyone does this? I'm not sure this will work. Please help.
    I've had to do this too however my test isn't until the 15th September so for all I know it might not work 😂 just get the letter done and it should be fine for both of us hopefully 😸

    Hi guys,
    I know this has been asked a lot, but I was wondering how representative the medify question bank for AR is compared to the questions we get in the actual exam. I've seen someone say that medify is easier than the real ones? Is that true?
    thank you !
    i look at this post everyday and have seen every post aha, the consensus is that most people have found it easier with fairly simple patterns however there is a few who have stated it is harder. best thing to do is to do as much questions as possible so it shouldnt be too difficult, even if it is more difficult patterns in the real thing

    Anyone who's done the UKCAT exam, how many questions did you find (roughly) that didn't contain key words in them in the VR section? I.e questions like "which of the following can be concluded from the passage" or "which of the following is the author most likely to agree/disagree with"? Was there a lot of them or only a couple?

    throughout this thread, most questions were comprehnsive type ones not T/F/CT, most people had a handfull of the T/F/CT questions

    How representative are the sections (VR, AR and especially QR)in mock A compared to the real thing? I found the QR questions on the official mocks were very intimidating compared to Medify

    Yup I saw that, but the comprehensive type can have a key word in them. I was wondering how many of them didn't, because generally those ones are the hardest and take up the most time

    I asked my friend who's done the exam twice now and he said that the VR and AR questions on the UKCAT website are roughly the same in terms of difficulty as the ones in the actual exam. Said QR was much easier in the actual exam than the ones on the website though (as have many others).

    That's very reassuring to hear. I was ok with VR and AR in mock A but QR was a different matter. Most of the early questions in particular were very long and wordy.

    Sure! This is my first draft. I'll probably make another one on A3 paper once I've finished doing more questions. Excuse my messy writing. 🙈
    Thank you! This is fab!

    so ive been revising for a while now and done the mini mocks for each section on medify and got the following

    VR: 630
    QR: 670
    AR: 600
    SJT: Band 2
    Average 633

    this is ok considering my UKCAT isnt until the 10th of september, but does anyone find AR on medify fairly difficult? all books i have previously tried have been fine and ive done well but medify is worrying
    also find the long questions in VR difficult

    Hi guys im looking for some advice onn medicine courses with a foundation year
    I'm going into year 13 doing English language, Biology and Chemistry.
    My predicted grades will most likely be
    English - a*/a
    Biology - a/b
    Chemistry - b
    ( I've also got an A in AS Geography)


    Obviously these aren't high enough for medicine and that is the only thing I want to do, so I've been looking into med with foundation years and I do fit the general requirements of having a low house hold income, deprived secondary school, first generation of my family to go into higher education and also had medical problems this year. I know I can achieve A*AA next year but my predicted grades won't be that high.

    Will I be able to apply for medicine with the foundation if I get AB B predicted grades, and then if I achieve the standard AAA, not have to do the foundation year? I have relevant work experience so personal statent will be good , ok GCSEs (2a*7a1b) and am sitting ukcat in a couple of weeks but hopefully that goes well.

    Never looked into the foundation year before but seems perfect for me, unless I'm missing something.

    Hey,
    I have my exam in 2 days too, but I don't want to worry...the more you stress the worse you will do on the exam. My favorite tip is to remember to flag...don't waste time on the hard ones as there are plenty of gems with easy marks scattered throughout the test. I hope we both do well....

    Skip em

    In all seriousness, this is how i do it:
    Identify the type of question by taking a look at the passage and the 4 questions.
    IF: - T/F/CT - Identify keywords, scan then answer.
    - Type 2 Scannable Questions (About a specific topic etc) - Identify Keywords, scan then answer. (To note with these, if the majority of Q (3/4) is scannable, then you should be able to work out the answer to the harder question once all 3 have been completed).
    -Type 2 Harder Questions (What does the author think etc.)
    - If passage is short and on an understandable topic, read passage carefully intaking all information. I find this helps a lot with these types of question.
    - If passage is long/short and on a topic you know nothing about or too wordy - Guess, Flag, Skip, Comeback to it if you have time. Be careful on questions like this, they soak up time.

    Don't be afraid to skip questions. Some are much easier than others, and you will naturally get a higher % on the easier ones. Don't waste you time on questions you have no hope in hell of completing.
