    I have my UKCAT tomorrow but i've just done a practice mock on the official website and haven't been able to answer the majority of the question in quantitative reasoning :/
    I did my UKCAT today and got 800 in QR and I didn't answer all of the questions. Also, I was the same in the mocks so I wouldn't worry if I were you.

    Would you say most of QR was pretty simple? What kinds of calculations came up the most?

    Hi guys,

    I sat my ukcat today and got an 717 average:

    VR 640
    QR 900
    AR 610
    SJT- Band 1
    Total 2150

    I just wanted to reassure everyone that's freaking out that the QR is easier in the actual exam and using the number pad on the keyboard really speeds you up so it's not so time pressured. AR is harder than medify definitely but I guessed most of them and still got a decent score so don't panic. I revised using medify for 2 weeks so you definitely don't have to go on any of these expensive courses to do well- just do practice questions as much as you can and you'll be fine.

    Good luck everyone.
    Great score!
    How did you get 900 in QR. I find the questions easy but the calculations take me so long to do because so many have multiple steps. Did most of yours only have 1/2 steps or were they really long and how did you time it yourself? Did you have to guess any of them?

    Thats not bad. You got Band 1 that will help significantly. Also, if you have great GCSE's you will also have a better chance. If you're still worried maybe try the BMAT too, thats what I'm gonna do, and then apply to those unis

    I did my UKCAT a little while ago and im quite disappointed with my results
    VR: 540
    QR: 710
    AR:740
    SJT: Band 2
    I had my heart set on Edinburgh but i dont think these results will cut it, especially that VR. Any advice on what uni's I'd stand a chance with? I like the idea of Glasgow too but im not sure if I'll get in with these results either. I'm an Irish student who does pretty well in my exams, particularly in english so would this help my bad VR score?

    Just finished my UKCAT and i got an average of 700 (VR: 610, QR: 740, AR: 750 and Band 2). I see that im sitting right there on the boundary for UKCAT heavy unis like Newcastle??
    Which Unis would be best to apply for??

    Also, thank to everyone on this thread!! It was a great source of information!

    For me, the majority of the questions were quite simple with a few multi-step calculations which I guessed and flagged to save time.

    Hey! For the people who have sat the exam this year, with abstract reasoning were there many 'double/triple' patterns like that of medify or were they just one pattern?

    Hi
    For people who've already done the UKCAT, how did the QR section compare to those on the official site, or for those that did the Kaplan course, the mocks on there?

    Thank you in advance

    Hi everyone! My exam is next week I was wondering how easier/harder is the real thing than the official mocks that are on the UKCAT website? and what about the Kaplan mocks? I'm getting around 700 on the official ones and 750 on the Kaplan ones...

    Thanks in advance!
    Official mocks are definitely harder don't worry! If you're scoring 750 on Kaplan you're doing great

    Hey I've got the 1000Q book and I'm thinking of just not using it anymore as it is too challenging. Would be a sensible decision to just use the kaplan book and online practise questions?

    QR was easier than the mocks on the official site. To put it in context, it was my worst section when practising and my best in the real thing.

    It's my worst section aswell and my UKCAT is tomorrow morning. Stressing out about it because I can't seem to get it right no matter how much I practice 😁
