    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.
    I have adopted the same technique during my practice runs and it has improved my VR performance significantly

    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....

    hey thank you yes it better to be relaxed.
    i just hope it goes well. dont really know wat to practice i have test on tuesday
    god help us :P

    Helllo, I'm quite confused about the booking system. How often is it updated? Right now there is only one space open and I'm not sure if I should rush to take it. Will more appointments be available next month? Thanks!

    If you haven't booked your ukcat yet then book it! The dates will be the same next month. You should have booked your ukcat a few months ago to guarantee a good slot. If there is one slot left. Then there is one slot left no more dates will be released unless someone cancels

    Nobody has revised DM. It's pointless isn't scored. Most people seem to go to the toilet and prepare for QR. It's nothing to worry about

    Hi, silly question but can you just assume recorded = there definitely wasn't any? How do we know for certain?

    I would have put cant tell too; surely the fact that none were recorded does not mean there were not any for sure? It could just mean they were not seen? Don't think the answers quite right idk. Where is that question from?

    Hi guys,
    I was wondering what kind of strategies you all adopt for QR? I'm struggling with the timings and keep panicking.

    It's Kaplan. I've noticed many things like that in their practice mocks, and I'm unsure if the UKCAT is like how Kaplan make it out to be or how I think it would be...

    Whenever I point out little things like this, Kaplan will do their utter best to defend their answers lol

    For students that have done Kaplan or any other courses with tuition included, would you say it was worth it. What did you you feel you got out of it that you wouldn't have by just studying yourself?
    I'm considering it for next year (need all the help I can get, can manage straight As at uni and yet flunk this bloody test!) but as an independent student, it's a big outlay. I'd be willing to pay it if it was worth it.
    Appreciate any feedback on this 😊

    It depends on the medical school generally. Band 2 is almost definitely good enough to get you an interview, as long as you have scored well in the other sections.

    A quick question for ppl who have already sat the exam...

    1) Can you zoom in (I.e. Cntrl + +/-)?
    2) Can you highlight the text (E.g. Drag your cursor whilst left clicking)?
