    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?
    Oh right, why do you think I should avoid those 3? Yeah don't think I'll be going for Warwick now. Not taking GAMSAT/BMAT, hence I was considering Kings etc. How are you getting on with your application?

    Well done!!! I don't think kings do that much it's is more Edinburgh. How did you score so highly in QR? Everyone seems to be getting 800+ but in all my mocks I've done been getting 650-750 like how
    thank you! which mocks have you been using? I did a lot better in QR than I thought I would. The QR was a little easier than the resources I have been using (Medify/1000Qs/Kaplan/official tests) although it wasn't as easy as people have been saying. I think you should be fine if you're getting those scores but my main tip is to flag any hard Qs that look like they're going to take a while and focus on getting the easy Qs right first!

    Apparently, the lowest score that got an interview for Southampton last year was 725. NCL was about 720, and Kings has a reputation for being quite heavy on UKCAT.
    My application is ok, thanks, apart from writers block every time I look at my personal statement. Just finished my MSc thesis so I think I may have used up all of my writing skills.

    Oooft ok. I'll have to do a bit more research then as I'm running low on uni options. Oh you'll be in a strong position for finishing a masters though, how did you find the UKCAT or have you not taken it yet? Good luck with the personal statement progress!

    Hello other stressed applicants!
    Just wondering if there was anyone who has finished using medify and still has any subscription left would let me use their remaining time, even if it was only a day? I can't really afford to subscribe myself so thought it was worth a shot as I saw a few pages earlier this had happened. Have been using the UKCAT official stuff but am coming to the end of what is available. Thank you in advance to any help!

    I got 730 in UKCAT. Absolutely stunned as UKCAT has been my nemesis in previous applications.

    Have you looked at Birmingham? They don't use an admissions test but they do focus on academics. It may be an option if you have a strong background. Also, your UKCAT may be mitigated at other unis if you have strong academics. The chap at Barts said that, because of the 50:50 weighting, a strong academic profile could make up for a lower UKCAT score.
    Are 5 year course an option at all?

    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.
    Your ukcat score is amazing! Most unis barely look at SJT and even if they did band 2 is really good

    QR was my worst section in mocks, never got above 650 and was usually 550-630 - got 740 in the real thing and some people seem to have had even bigger jumps I genuinely think the mark scale they're using is a lot more generous, plus the questions seem to be slightly easier.
    Also: if you don't have a number pad on your keyboard now or aren't using it, use it in the exam (you can practice in some of your DM time), it speeds you up so much!!

    Are you using medify? Their questions are very hard but that means you'll be more prepared when it comes to it.

    Generally it doesn't require higher level knowledge, so if you're doing a question with anything more difficult that percentage changes you're probably doing something wrong. Also, just as with the rest of the UKCAT, spend a decent amount of time on each question and if you're stumped or working through it slowly - move on to the next!

    Medify, 1000Q and medic portal. Havnt done the official ones yet. Oh okay, thanks for the advice! I'm really bad at doing that, I lose track of time when I'm trying to work something out haha

    Yes I started using QR on medify today and omg it was awful so I've stopped that and have started using the 1000q ISC book to slowly get into it without stressing myself out too much, do you know whether this one is really easy for QR or just normal? The questions in this book and on medify are fine maths wise it's just the timing and picking things out of the data quickly is what I'm struggling with

    It's timing really I've only started working on it today so I really should be less harsh on myself but it takes forever and the online calculator I actually despise so much. I've started using the 1000q book for QR and haven't been timing it, is that a good or bad idea? Do you think I should start being strict now or do that later on when I'm more confident with the format?

    I'm not sure what you mean. If you're asking about the 1000q book I'm not sure because I haven't used it. Timing is certainly the most important part - get used to the questions with the 1000q book but certainly move onto timing yourself.
