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

    Where could I apply with that score? I'm doomed...
    If you've worked that out from your mocks then don't worry as people get normally get a lot higher. However, if you really believe you're going to get that score (which I'm sure you won't) there's quite a few schools you can apply to (Cardiff being one) as long as you have good stats etc and there's always the BMAT so don't worry.

    Just did my second UKCAT official mock, a little bit better than Mock A but the abstract section was awful had to guess quite a lot of the patterns and I am normally fairly good at it I got 677 average, (730 verbal, 670 Quantitative and 630 abstract). Can anyone who has done UKCAT say how each of the mocks compare? Like the abstract is not that hard right? Thanks!

    on the medify limited time practice sessions, do people bother to convert their score using the percentage x 600 + 300 method ? and does that kind of correlate with the mini mocks and mocks they do? ? Thanks!

    It's actually better if you do it in the morning (as long as you have a good sleeping pattern) because you're less likely to be tired going into the exam

    I wanted to ask fellow medical students here if these results could allow me to enter the universities I will be writing down here:

    GCSE:
    Eng lang & lit = BB
    Geography= A
    Double Science=BB
    Maths=A*
    Further maths= A*
    Business=A
    Religion Education=A*
    French=B
    BTEC IT= Merit

    AS Level ( MOST UNIS SAY THEY CHECK YOUR A LEVEL PREDICTED GRADES):
    Maths = B - disappointed
    Chemistry= D- such a letdown
    biology= B - very happy
    business= A! throwing this away though

    I will be applying for:
    -Manchester
    -Leicster
    -SGUL
    -Queens mary

    I will be sitting the UKCAT on the 16th September, but I am having major problems in the VR and QR sections.

    please state whether I am at a disadvantage in any area, though my personal statement seems fantastic! Thank you in advance, and good luck to us all future medics

    just need to do some research, will you be predicted 3 A's with your AS levels? some look at predicted and some look at everything gcses included
    leicester score depending on your gcse, as results and predicted results along with ukcat so have a look at the document they have on their website and work out your score and if you think its reasonable then go ahead
    i dont know much about queen mary, im applying their too but i will have a degree in adult nursing
    but just have a look at all their admission policy on their websites and youll get a good idea

    have a look at gcse bitesize maths to make sure you have all the basics down to a T like percentage change and ratio etc, i went through all of that and improved massively
    VR is just making sure you can skim read the text as quick as you can by picking out the vital information AFTER reading the question so you know what youre looking for. just have to practice as much as you can. some people mention trying to skim read in normal day to day life like news papers and stuff to get your brain used to it

    im not a medical student, hoping to be, but ive read every page of this thread :')

    Thanks a ton for the advice on the ukcat, iffel that's what I have been missing .
    I have seen all their websites, and seems leicster is the hardest one, I really did badly in my GCSE's ;( but I'm hoping my chem predicted grade will be an A and I smash the ukcat.

    I hope u achieve your dream, appreciated your advice, and good luck in your ukcat. gotta go back to finishing some AR Section question Good luck Medics!

    I just did the SJT mock from the 1000Qs book and I just about got Band 1 (221-272 is band 1 and I got 221). I've read on here that the book is a lot harder than the actual thing so I wanted to know if I've got a good chance of getting a band 1 in the real thing?

    I see your point... but it's kinda hard to scan through 189 pages of posts to look for a question, ya know?

    I found the official mocks easier than real for VR and AR... QR was slightly easier in real than official mocks
