    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 😁

    Thanks for replying x
    Honestly I wouldn't worry if I were you. Hopefully you're the same as I was.

    Good luck!

    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.
    how do you use the number pad on the keyboard, do you have to press a button to enable it to work?

    No worries. The only thing that was difficult about abstract was that there were lots of overlapping patterns on each set to form one big complex pattern: for example it wasn't just total sides=11, it was total sides=11 and then a fixed number of black shapes or circles etc. From medify, I got used to just looking for one single pattern and teaching myself to not over complicate it, but then it the real exam it was quite complicated and I just didn't have time to find all the patterns. I only managed to find a few partial patterns and then had to guess the rest. Also there were quite a few set A/set B questions that medify didn't have many of so I was a bit thrown by them.

    As long as you manage to get a few partial patterns though you should be find, stick to whichever mnemonic you use (I used NSPC) and don't get stressed if you can't find a pattern just take a guess.
    what does that NSPC mnemonic stand for?

    Hello everyone,

    I'm currently exactly a week away from taking my UKCAT but I've run into a bit of a wall in terms of my practice. I've exhausted all the official practice questions as well as the 600 questions book I borrowed from my library (I know its out of date but I couldnt afford to buy the newer version. I dont know what else to do since I'm still terrible at most sections so desperate atm.

    I wanted to know if anyone had a few spare days left on their Medify account after they've taken their test and would be willing to let me use it. I know this is pretty shady but Im desperate and my parents arent willing to spend more money on this test than what it cost to register.

    If all else fails, any more recommendations of free practice questions (especially AR and QR) would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks in advance

    That site has some free questions and tutorials, I'm not sure how good it is because I've only heard it mentioned, haven't actually used it
