    Hi guys, how much harder is the real thing than medify/ Kaplan? Purchased both, have my test on 6th sept (3 days). I'm finding Kaplan is easier than medify, especially in abstract. Not doing great in mocks, 610-670 is my range with 750 and 733 anomalies.

    Having done my UKCAT yesterday, I personally found that the AR was much easier in the real thing compared to medify, VR was slightly easier and QR was about the same. I think the most accurate representation of the real thing is the official UKCATs on their website.

    You're all clever people on here, so would it be possible for people to read previous posts before asking their question? Chances are it's been asked about 100 times in the last week already

    Hey guys, I've booked the test on the 27th of September and I've also bought Medify on the 27th of August, so 1 month Subscription. I've been using it 3/4 hours a day since, because I know I won't have as much time when school starts and I guess it's helping me.
    Still, I really think I won't be able to finish all the questions in the mocks or in the actual exam, so I wanted to know, did you finish ALL the questions
    in QR, AR and VR or did you left out any??

    I have my UKCAT in just under 4 weeks and im planning to use the 1000q book and medify to prepare. This has probably been asked before, but how long should I spend learning from the book and how long do I need to practice?

    Hey guys

    I did the ukcat last yr. For people who's done the ukcat last year and this year, do you think that QR is easier compared to last yr or about the same level.

    Im taking my UKCAT on monday and I was wondering A) does anyone have any advice for AR? I cant do it for the life of me and it drags my scores down ridiculously and B) do you bother for the decision analysis, I mean it doesnt count for anything so can I/ have you /do you skip(ed) it?

    thansk
    My UKCAT is on Monday too! With AR, it's just loads of practice. The patterns are normally similar so after a while you get quick at recognising the obvious ones eg. Odd vs even sides, number of right angles, up and down arrows etc. And if there is a super hard one you don't get guess and flag and come back to it as I bet there will be easier ones later on which you can get done to garuntee marks and with DM you don't have to do it but I feel guilty as UKCAT wanna use the data so

    Has anyone done the real UKCAT and used medify?If so did the actual question appear at bottom of screen or at the side? I think the fact that i cant look at the information and the questions in medify (particularly QR) is slowing me down and was wondering if the real test is this format also?

    Hey guys,

    I just booked my UKCAT for the end of September. Anyone suggest any materials that are worth purchasing? ( I've found out that the exam has changed this year or something?. I've heard medify is pretty good but I'm not sure what else is out there

    Hi not sure if this has already been asked or not but what would you say is an average score this year?

    This year will be the 2nd time taking the UKCAT but since its out of 2700 (not 3600 like last year) I was wondering what would be considered a 'good score'...

    Nobody knows for sure but Liverpool said their competitive score was something like 1780-1850 or something that's from the top of my head and Sheffield want 1850. So those will count as good scores most likely but this isn't including super ukcat heavy uni's.

    Btw I should add Liverpool isn't definite whereas Sheffield is as Liverpool are just assuming at this point until the real averages come out^ Also you know how on medify the calculator disappears every question is that the same for the real test? Because it drives me mad

    In the real test the calculator stays on screen but it's much bigger so you have to move it about to red all the question and get to the data etc

    I think the highest I've scored in the mocks is 667 avg, my highest score for any section was 750.

    VR scores fluctuated in the mocks I did - I think my highest was 33/44 and in mock C I got 709, honestly in the real thing I couldn't wait for it to be over. I'd advise to just get familiar with the walls of text and keep a steady pace. The passages weren't necessarily longer but you need a lot of practice.

    QR I found the first few sets to be easy but then a couple of hard sets in a row I had to guess. AR was pretty good throughout, I probably made some silly mistakes though. SJT had clear cut answers on par with medify, they weren't as 'ethically sensitive' as the ISC 1000 questions book that I practiced with.

    GL!
    how do you know you got 709 in mock C? how did you convert the raw score to a UKCAT score?

    I suspect I'll get a 590-600 average.

    Where could I apply with that score? I'm doomed...
