    I'd avoid UKCAT heavy unis like QM, Newcastle, Manchester, Glasgow etc because you probably wouldn't meet the cutoffs. Depending what your Bs are in you're viable for GCSE heavy unis

    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exhausted all the official practice questions as well as the 600 questions book I borrowed from my library (I know its out of date but I couldnt afford to buy the newer version.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
    Hey bro ive got my ukcat tomorrow and have 5 days spare on it PM me ill give you my details

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

    I pressed number lock and then just used to numbers to the right hand side of the keyboard, they're set out like a mini calculator so it was way easier to use that than the mouse. Also you can use the divide/add/multiply/subtract keys on the number pad so that should help speed you up- it helped speed me up at least.

    Hey guys, just got done with my UKCAT with an average of 760 but only Band 2 in SJT. Will this disadvantage my application or restrict any uni choices?

    If you're interested, I got 700, 830, and 750 in Verbal, Quantitative and Abstract reasoning.

    Generally speaking, if you get around 705+ as an average, you're in the top 10% of the students who took that exam. So, if I'm being honest, you could probably apply to almost every UKCAT uni without worrying (as long as your predicted grades and personal statement fit the standard required).

    760 is a very good score, well done. I'm not sure why people who get above 700 as an average worry about their score - I've known friends who've got offers from medical school with scores varying between 630-680. Yes, someone actually got into med school with 630 as an average. So don't stress it, your score is great.

    The QR in the official mocks is MUCH harder than in the real thing. I was getting around 600 in the mocks but 850 in the real thing!!

    If you look on the Bristol website it says:

    Academic score: 20% (A-level score: 12%, GCSE score: 8%)
    Personal statement score: 70%
    UKCAT: 10%

    Hi, I'm applying for grad entry too. You will most likely want to avoid Kings, Southampton, and NCL. Your VR subsection score is probably too low for the Warwick cut off. Barts may be possible depending on your academics. Are you taking GAMSAT or BMAT?

    Hey guys so I just did my ukcat and got:
    VR 580
    QR 890
    AR 680
    SJT Band 1

    Throughout all my practice I was averaging below mid 650 (even averaged 570 once lol). For those with upcoming tests fret not, the actual test is so much easier than the practice mocks. Just make sure you go in feeling confident!

    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.
    Hey so would you recommend revising abstract reasoning on the official UKCAT website? (p.s. well done on your results!)
