    Hi everyone, stupid question but can you skip the whole decision making section so the test would finish earlier
    Can't do I'm afraid

    Yeah I was thinking the same. Can you do each QR question in 36 seconds? It seems impossible to me.
    Some of them yeah, but a lot of them are unrealistically difficult. I did the UKCAT last year and the only thing I remember from that exam was that the QR was significantly easier than any questions I did whilst prepping for the exam so I wouldn't stress too much IMO.

    Thank you So the level of difficulty on medify is roughly the same in the real thing?
    I haven't done my ukcat yet but apparently so aha. The layout is pretty
    Much the same though

    Does anyone have any tips for the quant and verbal sections?
    My test is a little under 3 weeks away and I just seem to be scoring significantly lower (in the low 600s) in these sections compared to abstract and SJT.

    I will be posting my results here in about 3 weeks time. Right now my uni options are Aberdeen, Glasgow, Edinburgh, St. Andrews and Dundee. I will have to give up one but that depends on whether my score is high, low or average. I know that Aberdeen doesn't have a cut-off so if thing don't go extremely well (which is unlikely anyway) I'll probably apply there instead of St Andrews. If I have the luxury of choice my first choice would be Glasgow and 2nd would be Edinburgh.

    I can't really say much about quantative reasoning but if I had to it would be to not panic like me. :/ Good luck! My test is in 3 weeks and I'm feeling the pressure and I need to write my personal statement. AHHH lol

    For QR; when you see a question with a lot of information or data, guess, flag for review and come back to it later. There are loads of other questions which are much shorter/simpler where you should be aiming to pick up marks in. For VR, whenever you see a question without a key word then guess it, flag for review and come back for it later. Questions with a key word in them take up much less time and they're easier to answer as you can scan for the word in the passage.

    Can anyone tell me how realistic the Medify Mock 1 is to the actual test?
    I scored unusually high in it (for me anyway):
    VR: 770
    QR: 730
    AR: 700
    Band 2
    I have never got anything over 690 average and never, ever have i scored that high in VR before sooo...
    Is it easier compared to the other mocks?
    In Mock 2, i got 660 avg and in Mock 3, i got 600 (i did these before 1 because only 1 had the decision making section)

    PS. My exam is in 2 days
    PSS. AR only had 50 questions... What's up with that?

    I think it's hard to tell because the Medify mocks probably aren't standardised in the same way the UKCAT exams are, the mocks vary in difficulty, hence why your averages vary a lot

    Yeh, it actually is because you expected to read the passage and answer 4 question under 2 min. Never managed to get higher than 60% . But then again whole UKCAT exam is annoying and hard looooooool.

    Is the difficulty of the medify QR realistic? it seems very hard for some timed practise questions whilst others are fairly easily.

    ME TOO!! oh my god, I got 830 AR, 750 VR and 730 QR in mock 1 but my average in 2 was 690 and in 3, 673... I think they are just harder! I havnt done my test yet though, but apparently the real thing is easier for AR and QR and a little harder with VR

    I think they pick them randomly from a mixture of easier and harder questions so you probably just end up with harder ones sometimes instead of a mix. Don't worry I found that too.
